I suspect that Bill Nemitz secretly prays each night that Paul LePage wins a second term as governor.

Why would the pit bull for Chellie Pingree and Donald Sussman want LePage to get a second term? Simple: 90 percent of his columns for the last four years have been focused on beating our governor like a baby seal and he has evolved into a one-trick pony. Nemitz probably prays that sweet gig continues, or it would be back to covering nursing homes.

If one of the other candidates makes it; what would he write about? Cue the crickets!

The newspaper could hold a contest similar to guessing the number of marbles in a jar: How many columns did Bill write savaging our governor, how many times did his column start “Dear Gov. LePage,” how many people stopped reading Bill’s column because boredom set in?

I could go on, but I will leave the constant droning on to Nemitz.
