The Christmas wreaths and greens have disappeared from the governor's mansion, but the doors leading to the State House offices of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.'s senior aides have been decorated to mark a different season: the spirited legislative session and upcoming election.
Affixed to the doors, including those leading to the Republican governor's inner sanctum and trophy room, are copies of an enlarged quote from the Democratic Senate President Thomas V. "Mike" Miller.
The flyer reads: GOP leaders are "going to be flying high, but we're going to get together and we're going to shoot them down. We're going to bury them face down in the ground, and it'll be 10 years before they crawl out again."

"I was talking about the governor and lieutenant governor!" Miller said.
