Gov. Paul LePage: stuffing the foot deeper in his mouth

After comparing the IRS with Gestapo the first time, Paul LePage decided to make the picture more nuanced:

During an interview with a reporter from the Burlington weekly Seven Days, LePage said the IRS wasn't as bad as the Gestapo, the Nazi police force that imprisoned and murdered millions of Jews during World War II, but the agency was headed in that direction.
Hm... poetic license at work? Or is it that IRS stepped on the Governor's toe?

Someone take his shovel as he has never heard of the maxim "when you are in a hole stop digging"

That too. He is a diligent fellow, though, and digs quite quickly.
