If Not Governor, Maybe An Entertainment Lawyer

"Martin O'Malley is easy on the eye -- very easy on the eye."

Thus begins a wet kiss of an introduction to an interview with Maryland's governor that appears in the August/September issue of Irish America magazine. O'Malley (D), very much the Irish American, graces the cover.

"He's handsome, young and he's got talent," the piece continues (yes, the author is a woman). "He paid his way through college playing music -- Irish music. ... And he can speak. His speeches bring to mind Lincoln, J.F.K. and his brother Bobby, with whom he has been compared, and Martin Luther King.

"O'Malley is governor of Maryland; he could be in Hollywood, or winning Grammy Awards, or at least making tons of money as an entertainment lawyer. But he's in public service."

An entertainment lawyer?

Highlights of an interview, which Irish America says spanned "several hours," follow the introduction, and include at least one news nugget.

Asked about his Celtic rock band, O'Malley's March, O'Malley says he has not been playing much lately but offers up this: "We have recorded the guts of an underground CD. It's called, 'Banished to the Basement,' but we don't know if it will ever see the light of day."
