O'Malley's Children Share The Spotlight

Two of Gov. Martin O'Malley's children played prominent supporting roles yesterday during a string of appearances in the Baltimore region.

The governor tapped 16-year-old Grace O'Malley as his "lifeline" during a morning radio appearance in which he faced off against a listener in a pop culture quiz on "Jojo, Reagan and the Mix Morning Show" on Baltimore's WWMX-FM.

O'Malley's daughter was piped in by cell phone on the way to school to help O'Malley (D) with questions that included this: Which of the following three starlets -- Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton -- have not been to rehab?

"You want me to answer that, Dad?" asked Grace.

"Please," replied the governor.

Grace nailed it: Paris Hilton, of course.

She was also able to supply her father with the name of the Web site where users can post videos: YouTube.

O'Malley managed to answer two questions on his own, including identifying the name of the sax player in Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. Clarence Clemmons, for those of you playing along at home.

Before she was dismissed, Grace was also asked by Reagan about "the one thing that you make fun of your dad for?"

"Oh gosh, there's a lot," she replied. "I guess sometimes his clothes."

"My clothes," her father shot back. "What's the matter with my clothes?"

Later in the day, O'Malley, wearing jeans and a red polo, was joined at the State Fair by his 9-year-old son, William.

They should have been quizzed on simple math, like how much more will those jeans and that red Polo cost at the end of Daddy's term when you add 7% tax to the sale price?

Wagner, how could you report with an honest face that O'Malley wants a special session in October or November in the Maryland briefing? You and several other reporters indicated he said November was 'too late' when he was at MACo just two weeks ago! Don't be his shill. Do your damn job and say the Governor has changed his timeline on special session and has changed it a lot in two weeks meaning he thinks a consensus is now possible. You and Andy Green will write whatever you're told to write. It's becoming pretty pathetic.
