I got quite a chuckle reading "Hogan's rolling office raises eyebrows" (Sept. 7) regarding Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan's campaign bus. According to the Hogan campaign spokesman, Adam Dubitsky, the campaign pays Mr. Hogan $683.77 a month as "office rent" to use a newly-purchased bus, which is equal to what Mr. Hogan pays to fiance the bus. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign called Mr. Hogan's bus a metaphor for the Republican's wealth....

If you're wondering how the heck Sarah Palin's campaign bus wound up in Baltimore ... Wait, it's not a campaign bus, Palin insists, but a "bus to be able to express to America how much we appreciate our foundation. " So, if you're wondering how the heck Palin's "bus to be able to express to America how much we appreciate our foundation" wound up in Baltimore, I have the scoop from John Coale. Coale, you may recall, is the major Democratic fundraiser and trial lawyer best known for: A. Lending Martin O'Malley $500,000 in the final days of the 2006 governor's race.

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Sen. John McCain, the favorite in the Republican primary battle in New Hampshire, defended himself last night against challenges from his rivals over abortion, taxes and campaign finance reform. The 90-minute television debate, the last before Tuesday's primary vote, featured some of the sharpest exchanges of the campaign between McCain and Bush, who is running ahead of the field nationally. It also contained the most bizarre back-and-forth of the race, as former State Department official Alan Keyes was taken to task over his lighthearted leap into an Iowa mosh pit last week.

Buttressed by a jolly entourage of campaign staff and volunteers, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Kennedy Townsend boarded a large blue bus in Baltimore yesterday morning and headed deep into Republican country. But the daylong tour of Allegany, Washington and Frederick counties in Western Maryland, the first leg of a statewide swing, wasn't designed to win over new voters. Rather, it was an opportunity to check in with people who already admire her and to let them get a close-up look at her running mate, retired Adm. Charles R. Larson.

"By the time we're finished, they're going to wonder whether Willie Horton is Dukakis' running mate."--Lee AtwaterHe was big. He was black. He was every guy you ever crossed street to avoid, every pair of smoldering eyes you ever looked away from on the bus or subway. He was every person you moved out of the city to escape, every sound in the night that made you get up and check the locks on the windows and grab the door handles and give them an extra tug.Whether you were white or black or red or yellow, Willie Horton was your worst nightmare.

Sarah Palin made a surprise appearance Monday in Baltimore — and took the opportunity of a visit to Fort McHenry to knock the president. President Barack Obama, speaking earlier during a Memorial Day service at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, had said it was his "most solemn responsibility as president to serve as commander-in-chief of one of the finest fighting forces in the world. " Palin, asked in Baltimore for her thoughts on U.S. policy in Afghanistan, responded by upbraiding Obama.

BOSTON - Surgeons successfully repaired a torn tendon in Sen. John Kerry's right shoulder yesterday, discharging the presumptive Democratic nominee to convalesce at home. Kerry tore the tendon connected to his right-shoulder muscle in January while bracing himself as his campaign bus suddenly stopped. In addition to that 3/4 -inch tear, surgeons also discovered a small tear in a right-biceps tendon. He was under general anesthesia in the 45-minute procedure. Emerging from sedation at Massachusetts General Hospital, Kerry quipped, "I hope I didn't reveal any state secrets," according to his surgeon.

WARSAW, Poland -- On an election swing into the Polish countryside imitating Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign bus trip, Alexander Kwasniewski's arm gestures seemed remarkably Clintonesque.It turned out that Mr. Kwasniewski, the Polish presidential contender and former Communist, not only borrowed the idea of the bus but knowingly copied President Clinton's body language."It's not precisely the Clinton style, but we have adapted it to the Polish conditions," said Zbigniew Siemiatkowski, the campaign press secretary, who returned from a visit to the United States this year with a suitcase full of presidential debate tapes from Kennedy-Nixon through Bush-Clinton-Perot for Mr. Kwasniewski.
