  1. There really needs to be a new word. This goes beyond just “crazy” or even “flat f***in’ insane.”

  2. Those folks are snorting too much cocaine. If electing a black president brings out the asshole in normal folks, wait until a Latino is elected president. I can envision the racial sterotypes already.

  3. It’s been my experience that the people who work in Bar Harbor tend to be much more liberal than the people they wait on — and a lot poorer.

  4. Aw, I really hate giving traffic to right wing sites. Now I feel like I need to go wash off. Blech.

  5. I never made more than $11.00 an hour and I’ve eaten ice cream in Bar Harbor three times!

    The wing-nuts should at least give the POTUS credit for picking vanilla over chocolate!

    I’ve always gone for the blueberry.

    Actually, I was kind of sad to read that the First Family was driven to the top of Cadillac Mountain, due to security and time constraints. The only way to get to the top of Cadillac is to climb it, awesome every step of the way. Then you stumble pack down to the family jalopy, drive a couple of miles to Sand Beach, change into the swim suits, and RUN your overheated sunburned family into the waves!!!!

    Everybody screams!

    That water must be the coldest and cleanest beach in the lower 48.
    Even if you do the sane thing and walk in, by the time you get waist deep, your legs are numb. It really doesn’t matter, because the water is so crystal clear and this beautiful sea-green, and if you flip over on your back you see above you the pink granite and dark pines of Mt. Desert Island.

    Then you go back to the campground, warm up some Chef Boyardee on the campfire, eat that, and go to Bar Harbor for ice cream.

    I’ve never made more than $11.00 an hour. I ate ice cream in Bar Harbor and climbed Cadillac Mountain as a child, as a single woman, and as a married mother of two.

    I don’t think the Obamas had as good a time as I (and my husband and kids) did.

    Being rich, famous, and powerful is definitely over rated as lifestyle choice.

  6. Wobbly,
    My favortie time in Maine was climbing Mt. Battie in Camden and, at the top, sitting where Millay wrote “Renascence”. Your story reminded me of that.

  7. Wow, Millay wrote poems in Maine!!! Never knew that.

    She also wrote one about the Staten Island Ferry, another of the cheap scenic treats we working class people can afford.

    “We were very tired, we were very merry—

    We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.

    It was bare and bright, and smelled like a stable—”

    It’s actually CHEAPER now. It used to cost a quarter one way, was free the other way. Now it’s free both ways!
