Ehrlich To Be On Display At State Fair

Nine months after his re-election defeat, former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. remains the Maryland Republican Party's biggest star.

The latest evidence: Ehrlich is booked to appear next week at the state GOP's booth at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium.

"Governor Ehrlich would love to see you at the Maryland Republican Party's booth at the State Fair," says an item advertising the "special occasion" on the state GOP Web site. "He will be on hand to sign copies of his legacy book or other keepsakes that supporters have collected over the years."

Ehrlich, a former congressman and state delegate as well, will appear between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., according to the site.

The state GOP is also hawking DVDs filmed this spring at the party's 17th Annual Red, White and Blue Dinner in Baltimore.

Ehrlich was among the evening's featured speakers, talking about "how optimism defines our Party," the Web site says.

The DVDs are available "for the low price of $17 (plus $3 shipping and handling)." The cost goes down if you buy in bulk: Five can be purchased for $88, including shipping and handling.

Ehrlich, now a law partner with North Carolina-based Womble Carlyle Sandrich & Rice, is also maintaining visibility through a weekly talk show on WBAL radio in Baltimore that he co-hosts with his wife, Kendel.

Sorry Bob, but when push came to shove, you showed us that we couldn't count on you in the trenches (remember Mr. Smith?).

Have a great retirement from public office!

I believe Bob would still be there in the Mansion if he hadn't spent so much energy on slots, and raising state property taxes, raising flush taxes and increasing car fees.

Maybe the GOP can raise some funds by having a "Pin the Tail on the Ehrlich" booth. I'd part with a few $ for that.

Yoy would win no matter where you pinned Ehrlich since he is a total ass.

Calling David Paulson and Steve Kearney... quit frequenting these threads and the Baltimore Sun blogs. Don't you guys have jobs to do aside from slam Ehrlich? Shows how afraid you are.

A legacy book, so what, there are a lot of people out there who still like the he is approachable by John Q. least he hasn't threatened any talk show hosts lately.

Why don't you offer something to the people of the state, other than attacks.

did state employees work on Ehrlich's legacy book on state time? Paul Schurick claimed they did.
