Motivational Speaking

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."

Ehrlich's press secretary Henry Fawell would not reveal the name of the mystery staff member who plastered the

"It's just a little motivation," he said. "In case anyone missed those comments, we wanted to make sure everyone understood the mentality."

That is absolutely disgusting how partisan Mr. Miller intends to be towards people he should be looking to work together with. He is out of touch with his home district and he is out of touch with Marylanders. Miller and Busch's decision to make partisan war in an election year will likely cost them dearly as voters see the truth.
