So, there's this election being contested in Howard County, where the executive's position is being vacated by the incumbent Democrat, and the Democratic frontrunner for the seat is being accused by their Republican opponent of distributing ads which lie and distort the Republican candidate's record. So this Republican candidate is going all sorts of apoplectic on the Democrat, calling them dishonest and everything short of the word "liar".
What campaign is this, True Believers? If you said the race for Howard County Executive, you would be wrong, and a freak! If you said Governor of Maryland, you would be correct, and possibly still a freak! So stop writhing around on the ground, turn off that Lemonheads CD, get the cereal bowl off your head, the scissors out of your hand, and read this article! Complete with video suitable for viewing!
Ahh, so now we have it. The Democrats are the party of the people.... who can't seem to tell the truth if their lives depended on it. Who just can't help themselves but lie, lie, lie about the poor Republicans who only want to help people.
I'm kind of disappointed in Hogan on this one. I consider his attacks far stronger than the Kittleman return fire on Watson by comparison. But I also feel Hogan has a message beyond attacking Brown. I'm a strong proponent of keeping the high road in politics, and getting people to vote for you, not against the other person. And I do feel that Larry Hogan presents reasons to vote for him
And before anyone calls me a lackey, which will probably happen already-- I've decided that I am not endorsing a candidate in the Governor's race. I am focusing my efforts locally. Although, I will be offering some endorsements outside of Howard County-- looking to my east and to my west, specifically. Actually, not very specific at all. But you'll see.
September 19 is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. Arrrrrr?
And let's be careful out there.
