In August, Allan J. Lichtman, an American University history professor and candidate for the U.S. Senate, was barred from participating in a debate with Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin and former congressman Kweisi Mfume at Maryland Public Television studios in Owings Mills. Also excluded because of low poll numbers were former Baltimore County Executive Dennis F. Rasmussen and Montgomery County businessman Josh Rales. After they refused to leave the studio's vestibule when asked, Baltimore County police arrested Lichtman; his wife, Karyn Strickler; and Gail Dobson, a campaign volunteer.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Allan J. Lichtman lost his four top campaign staffers this week, a result of a difference of opinion about long-term campaign strategy, according to those involved. Lichtman's campaign manager, deputy campaign manager, communications director and deputy field director resigned Tuesday. "These are kids who have a lot of unrealistic ideas that could not be implemented," Lichtman said yesterday, adding that one paid worker -- a finance director -- remains.

The day after his debate-night arrest, Allan Lichtman issued a "Letter from a Baltimore County Jail." In case anybody missed the reference - hey, the voters aren't all history profs like Lichtman - the missive opened with a quotation from Martin Luther King's "Letter from Birmingham Jail." Lichtman's letter blasts organizers of the Senate debate for only inviting the two Democratic front-runners, Ben Cardin and Kweisi Mfume. It's not quite the stuff of King. No references to Thomas Aquinas or Socrates.

Bethesda -- With a populist message and a few digs at the front-runners, politics professor and commentator Allan J. Lichtman entered the race for the U.S. Senate yesterday. Though he has never run for office, Lichtman told a crowd of supporters gathered at the North Bethesda Middle School that he will capture the Democratic nomination and win the general election by waging a grass-roots campaign against corporate interests and the Washington establishment. "I am running to change what is wrong in Washington," he said.

IF ALLAN LICHTMAN is right, George Bush better hope and pray the L.A. riot is not the beginning of "sustained social unrest." If it is, Bush gets beat in November, according to Professor Lichtman's never-fail formula for predicting presidential elections.Lichtman's formula involves 13 "keys" to an election. If an incumbent's party's nominee gets eight of them, he wins. Last month Lichtman, of American University, told the Christian Science Monitor that he calculates Bush has eight keys and so should be re-elected if nothing changes.

The Dundalk boy unfolded it quickly, thrilled to read the two words sealing his victory: "Beanie Baby.""Yeah! Whoooooo!" Robert yelled as he jumped up and down, arms pumping. "I won!"There was exultation and disappointment at Drug City Pharmacy in Dundalk yesterday morning, where Robert and about 300 people waited outside for the chance to be first in line to buy the popular Beanie Baby toys.

Remember when blogs were edgy? Naughty? Full of rogue reporting and uncensored sexploits? And the flyover didn't actually come to pass. That's so last election cycle. Now, practically every political hopeful has a blog. But they mostly read like press releases, full of flattering entries from campaign staff and volunteers. Here's a sample from Maryland's U.S. Senate race: "Last Saturday, Ben and Myrna met with voters at two terrific house parties in Baltimore City and Prince George's county," begins one. "I went to the first event in Silver Spring and sure, Kweisi was on fire when he addressed the crowd," says another.

WITH LABOR DAY over, a crop of political hopefuls is ready to plunge into the race for U.S. Senate in Maryland. Kevin B. Zeese, a political activist from Montgomery County, is seeking the nominations of three minor parties in Maryland. By unifying supporters of the Green, Populist and Libertarian parties, he hopes to provide an alternative to whomever emerges as Democratic and Republican nominees.
