Last night, exhausted, I took the Washington Examiner to bed for a little quiet reading when I saw this article by Byron York about the Progressive zealot let loose at the Justice Department. It is noneother than Maryland’s own Thomas Perez. I almost jumped out of bed to report it to you. But, I see this morning that Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum has it posted with a whole lot more! See it here.
Readers may recall that Perez, a former Casa de Maryland board member, was ENDORSED for his present job by prominant Republicans in Maryland—John Kane (husband of Ehrlich’s Lt. Gov. candidate, Mary Kane) and Tony O’Donnell (minority leader of the House of Delegates). We’ve been told it is because they are “friends.” Of course it’s O.K. to have friends who don’t share your political views, but this is what is wrong with the Maryland Republican Party (or at least its leaders), they are not guided by any set of policy principles, instead, it appears they are guided merely by the cronies they golf with!
There is absolutely no reason for those two leading Maryland Republicans to have endorsed Perez, helping to unleash him on the Nation.
Just a hunch, but could there be a connection between the Perez affair and the fact that the MD GOP leadership has supposedly screwed up by assuring that Maryland WILL NOT HAVE A TOP LAWYER, A REPUBLICAN AG CANDIDATE, to run against Progressive Attorney General Gansler, here. What could the Republican leadership gain, or is it just the friend-factor at work—- ruling class lawyers and golf buddies (and in-crowd wannabes) determining our futures?
