Get Dangerous, The Sequel


Whenever Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. finds himself in front of a business group, he is quick to point out that they have been backing the wrong team for a generation. So it was this afternoon, when Ehrlich addressed the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.

"Everyone in this room got a glimpse of your future [last] Thursday afternoon," when the legislature overrode his veto and passed legislation forcing Wal-Mart to spend more on employee benefits. "The first Tuesday in November is the only chance you'll have to do something about it."

Ehrlich said he was not angy, or repeating his admonition to "get dangerous," which he famously made two years ago when telling business leaders to make Democrats pay politically for failing to support them.

But the admonition yesterday sounded very similar: Come April when he officially begins his campaign, he said, "There's going to be a respectful clash of philisophical orientations. If you do not play, shame on you... Take a real hard look at your reality, and come November, remember it."

The comments deleted in the great purge had extensive, detailed, and well-sourced accounts of your Ombudsperson's lies (and also made pretty much everyone involved at the Post -- Kurtz, Steno Sue, Willis, Leen -- look like blatant right-wing hacks, including whoever photoshopped that document...)

Why delete the comments, when you could simply have frozen the posting of new ones?
Hadn't the offensive ones supposedly already been deleted? Brady's post is shockingly disingenuous.

Brothers and sisters, we have lived to see the day when the Post is to the right of Rick Lowry at the National Review!

The Post still won't say that Abramoff is a Republican scandal, won't say that Abramoff, like Delay, Frist and Rove, was a key part of the Republican K-Street project, and won't properly cover the K-Street Project -- which had as a key goal to use bribes and extortion to starve the Democratic Party of funding. This attempt to establish one-party rule threatens the very viability of our democracy like never before in our history. The co-opted, power-worshipping journalists at the Post are enablers, and therefore and in practice part of the plot.

I suppose one should assume that Post readers like CJP believe that Abramoff gives to both parties, because that is what the Post ombudsman wrote. But it still doesn't make it true.

And see, Mr. Brady, the comments are now demonstrating that your readers are misinformed.

The Post owes it to its readers to print a correction. Apologize for the original mistake. Apologize for the ham-handed way they have handled the legitimate criticism. And hire a real ombudsman who represents the readers rather than right wing think tanks.

The Maryland General Assembly is out of touch with what average Maryland citizens want and by that I mean citizens don't want them hanging a big sign on the border, "Maryland: Closed for Business."

Apparently, Bryan, you haven't been paying much attention to the polling data. Marylanders think businesses need to start taking some corporate responsibility. Thankfully, the General Assembly has reflected that.
