Brian Murphy's politics would be very successful — in Iraq

November 29, 2010

I know being a Republican ideologue in a blue state like Maryland takes some fortitude. But upon reading some of Brian Murphy's few specific proposals as to why he should have been the Republican gubernatorial nominee instead of Bob Ehrlich, I have to question why he would want to lead a government in the U.S.A. ("The Maryland GOP can win," Nov. 29.)

His most specific proposals require a country where firearms are widespread, where abortion is illegal and where immigration is not a problem. I would wholeheartedly recommend the sovereign state of Iraq. There are lots of firearms to be had. Abortion is legal only to save the life of the woman and even then is significantly restricted. And no one wants into Iraq. As a matter of fact there seems a not understandable rush to get out and stay out.

If he so purports his own integrity, he might want to address the robocalls made by people on the Ehrlich payroll as a way of separating himself from the moderate Republican faction.
