Mark Levin, Barbara from Maryland, and Dan Bongino

    Last Thursday night Mark Levin talked to a lady named Barbara, a Democrat from Maryland who works for NASA. The exchange was contentious but the talk host and the caller found some common ground and Mark even sent her a copy of Liberty and Tyranny.Barbara sounds like a committed Democrat who is nonetheless a little disillusioned with vitriolic politics. She told Mark that if a | Read More »

    The Maryland (and other States) Primary Results Open Thread.

    Maryland’s getting pride of place because it’s a) where I live and b) has actual, non-Presidential primaries tonight.  Presidential primary results here: Maryland’s state results are going to be… here, I guess.  Looks like (as of 8:30 PM) Romney won DC & MD; Dan Bongino is ahead in the MD-SEN nomination; and the may-not-recognize-her-luck Nancy Jacobs is ahead in the absolutely vital* MD-02 race.  Polls | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Dan Bongino (R CAND, MD-SEN PRI).

    One of the interesting things about CPAC is, of course, that you can meet a whole lot of different candidates.  Below was my conversation with Dan Bongino, who is a former US Secret Service agent now running for Senate in Maryland against Ben Cardin – and if you don’t remember who Ben Cardin is, don’t worry.  Cardin’s an amazingly generic Senator who, on his good | Read More »

    Around the U.S. in 50 Days: Delaware, DC and Maryland

    There is another Senatorial race in 2012 in Delaware. Democratic incumbent Tom Carper, to read the liberal press in the First State, is not particularly popular. However, this seems to be the mantra every year in Delaware when it comes to a Senate race. The problem for the GOP is that there are few viable candidates to take on these “substandard” Democratic opponents. Thus far, | Read More »

    Maryland redistricting map to get Voter Rights Act challenge.

    So… the Maryland redistricting map was revealed and signed into law recently, and – shock! Surprise! – the Democratic-controlled legislature managed to hack into one of the two Republican seats. The short version: they went into Roscoe Bartlett’s MD-06, switched out a bunch of districts to make it more competitive, and then put central Maryland into the redistricting blender and hit ‘puree.’ Because, well, central | Read More »

    Maryland planning more stealth tax hikes on poor?

    In a socially-acceptable way, of course: ie, via another hike in the tax on tobacco. The “Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative” – a name whose hint of subtle menace should make small-government types involuntarily shiver – looking to raise it by a buck a pack, because… well, pretty much because they want people to quit smoking, and taxing it through the ceiling is supposed to accomplish | Read More »

    Maryland Republicans Are Screwed

    I don’t know what to tell you, friends. The overwhelmingly liberal Old Line State is screwing Republicans with a proposed redistricting plan that would edge out one of Maryland’s Congressional Republicans, giving Democrats a 7-to-1 majority Congressional delegation. It was rumored for months, and it seems the rumors are true. The Washington Post reported on Saturday that Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (who is seen as a potential future | Read More »

    AIM: CASA de Maryland: The Illegals’ ACORN

    An Accuracy in Media Special Report by James Simpson: The illegal immigration debate has become an urgent focal point of American politics. Liberal politicians from the White House on down have vigorously advocated for illegal immigrant amnesty and lax border enforcement in a naked attempt to bolster prospective voter rolls. This controversy has been brewing for some time in Maryland, whose Hispanic population more than | Read More »

    Martin O’Malley (D, MD) pushing for Amazon tax.

    (Full disclosure: I am an Amazon.com Affiliate for Maryland.) It’s still in the early stages – the Governor has started the paperwork process and Comptroller for Maryland Peter Franchot supports the idea – but the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, and goodness knows that the Democrats keep doing precisely that when it comes | Read More »
