O'Malley Jams with The Govs in Denver

It sounds like Maryland Gov. Martin O"Malley threw quite the bash Wednesday night at an Irish pub in downtown Denver, where he and other Democrats were attending the Democratic National Convention..

In what has become a staple of O'Malley parties, the governor took the stage with his guitar to sing a few songs. But, this time, O'Malley had some help from other governors in entertaining the crowd. After O'Malley started playing, Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine joined him and started playing the harmonica. Earlier in the week, Kaine played the harmonica for the crowd at his own party.

As if the OMalley-Kaine band was not enough, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer joined in by playing the cow bells. Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano played the tamborine.

"We were like the Patridge Family," O'Malley said. "The over-the-hill gang"

The Rev. Jesse Jackson also attended O'Malley party, but didn't join the band.

While fiddling is going on, Maryland is burning. We supposedly now have a $1 billion "deficit," after the largest tax increase in state history last year. Is the Governor going to now raise the state sales tax to 8%? Is County Executive Leggett going to give us the largest property tax increase in 21 years next year after giving us the largest property tax increase in 20 years this year? Yes to both questions

But help is on the way. Question B on the Montgomery County ballot makes it more difficult to exceed the charter property tax limit. Vote for B for property tax relief!
