Dede Gilchrest and Doug Harris
In 2008, incumbent moderate Republican Congressman Wayne Gilchrest lost in the primary to conservative State Senator Andy Harris. Gilchrest had been serving in Congress since 1991 and was one of 2 remaining Republican Congressmen from Maryland. This upset was apparently too much for Gilchrest to handle. Instead of gracefully losing and endorsing the Republican or just staying out of the election – Gilchrest endorsed the | Read More »

It’s official: Charles Lollar is running for MD-05.
Steny Hoyer’s* seat. I talked with Charles back in August, back when it was merely very, very likely that Lollar was running; I liked what I heard. He’s running as a strong conservative, with an emphasis on fiscal responsibility – but without ignoring the social issues, either. Below is video from his speech to the Cecil County Tea Party on the Fourth of July: Charles | Read More »
HC Townhall: Steny Hoyer (D-MD) edition.
The long and winding road toward socialism via a complete HC Takeover continues and the Democrats are driving hard to get down the road before the wheels fall off their, hand-thrown together out of recycled tissues, soapbox derby car. Around the bend is ready yet another Three Ring Circus performance. The latest was no different. Yet another performing Parrot repeated the same memorized vocalizations to | Read More »

Steny Hoyer goes off-message on health care rationing.
Assuming that there’s any sort of on-message at this point. Via Hot Air, here’s the latest cloud of ink from a Democrat perhaps worried about the way things are going: Hoyer (D-Md.) emphasized his support for a public option in a teleconference call with reporters, but also said he wants to ensure Congress sends a bill to the president. “I’m for a public option, but | Read More »
Proposing to your fiancee: Yes/No.

Angry Mob Strikes Again
The angry, Right-Wing extremist, Nazi mob was in rare form tonight. There was about 2000 people in attendance (including those inside the venue), most of which were those disgusting Un-American hate-mongers. Those vile retched excuses for citizens kept asking those dreadful questions:

My talk with Charles Lollar (R-Cand, MD-05?).

Congressman Kratovil FAIL
Frank Kratovil (D-MD) is a freshman member of congress representing Maryland’s First Congressional District. He’s also extremely vulnerable. You’d think he wouldn’t do stuff like this. A young boy in the crowd asks the Congressman, “My grandfather is a retire war veteran. What are you going to do to make sure he is cared for with Health Care?” Congressman Kratovil’s response? He starts talking about | Read More »
Maryland millionaires’ massive migration.
There is a glaring inaccuracy in the linked WSJ article on vanishing Maryland millionaires. Essentially, It is not “a two-minute drill in soak-the-rich economics:” Maryland couldn’t balance its budget last year, so the state tried to close the shortfall by fleecing the wealthy. Politicians in Annapolis created a millionaire tax bracket, raising the top marginal income-tax rate to 6.25%. And because cities such as Baltimore | Read More »

Rep. Eliot Engel (D, NY-17) gets away with tax evasion.
I’ll need to remember this one if I ever have issues with my own state taxes: Bronx Rep. Eliot Engel calls Maryland home for tax break Bronx Rep. Eliot Engel may call himself a life-long Bronx resident, but he has also called Maryland his primary residence for years to get a local tax break that state officials have just squashed.

Maryland: Tradition and History Severed With New State Song Legislation
Contrary to popular conception, the South was not united during the Civil War. Every single southern state gave thousands of their sons to the northern armies and Maryland was no different. In fact, Maryland gave more soldiers to northern armies than it did southern (About 32,981 fought for the north and only 4,039 fought for the south). But this does not mean that Maryland was | Read More »
