Red Maryland week in review

December 09, 2013

From the Baltimore Sun Op-Ed Page
Mark Newgent talks about the banana republic of Maryland, and how KO Public Affairs and their Center Maryland subsidiary are examples of how Maryland has devolved into an oligarchy.

Hurting our Brand
Greg Kline writes that by continuing to support the rain tax, two Anne Arundel County Councilman are doing significant damage to the Republican Brand by being the "rat heads in the Coke bottle." A Note from the Vichy Wing of the GOP
The Vichy Wing of the Maryland Republican Party reared it's ugly head last week when former Delegate Charles Jenkins fawned over a Democratic candidate for Frederick County Executive. Be sure to check the comments section, where Jenkins further beclowns himself.

Noting the Differences
Mark Newgent reminds us of the difference between public servants and public public rulers.

Farm Bill Blues
The fervent support of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake for passage of the Farm Bill helps to show why nothing ever seems to change in Charm City.

We Hardly Knew Ya
Saying goodbye to a website you probably never knew existed and will never miss...

On Truthfulness
Dr. Richard Vatz says that the President has become a stranger to the truth.
