Spose deeply offended by Maine GOP's suggestion of depravity

Mock press releases
By SAM PFEIFLE  |  October 1, 2014

WELLS, MAINE – In a press release last Friday, the Maine GOP makes the suggestion that a Spose lyric contained in a Knack Factory video “suggests Senator Collins performs graphic sexual acts.”

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The lyric in question reads: “I’m the King of Maine, I’m the King of Maine, I’ve got Susan Collins giving everyone brain.”

Like many Spose songs, the lyrics here mock the boastful nature of most rappers. In this case, Spose claims to be so powerful he can actually make Senator Collins sound like an intelligent person, actually educating the people of Maine, rather than embarrassing herself as is her usual wont.

Spose, in this cutting satire, posits a world where Collins actually aspires to a livable wage, equal pay for women, and a halt to the ever-expanding gap between the extremely wealthy and the rest of America. Of course, those ideas are preposterous.

Where the Maine GOP gets its ideas about “brain” referring to oral sex is unclear.

“I mean,” said Spose, “have you ever seen Senator Collins? I think it’s pretty clear she’s never performed oral sex on anyone. If anything, I think it’s cruel of the Maine GOP to remind her husband of what he’s missing out on.”

“In the future,” he continued, “I would hope they would contact me before grossly distorting the meaning of my art.”

Further, Spose said he condemns the Maine GOP’s blatant attention grab, which not only uses Knack Factory’s intellectual property to attract people to its YouTube page, but also suggest that the people of Maine would consider oral sex a “graphic sexual act.”

“Surely the people of Maine are giving and receiving blow jobs on a daily basis,” Spose said, “and the idea of oral sex is hardly abhorrent. Or perhaps the senator would like, as with her other puritanical ideas about women being second-class citizens, to make the act illegal in some way. I would like the Maine GOP to clarify their position on oral sex and to make it clear whether they think Mainers should be ashamed in some way of this completely normal pleasurable experience.”

As for claims that the lyric is sexist or misogynistic in some way, Spose offers this retort: “In ‘16 Counties,’ I exhort everyone to ‘fuck Paul LePage.’ Even if I was talking about Susan Collins performing a sexual act, I think it’s clear I’m in favor of politicians of all genders copulating with the public frequently.”
