O'Malley Headed To Europe for D-Day Anniversary

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) will be out of the country for much of the coming week, as he travels to France to commemorate the 65th anniversary of D-Day and later plans to make stops in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia and Sweden.

O'Malley will be joining President Obama and other dignitaries on Friday and Saturday for events related to the D-Day commemoration.

The govenor's travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republic of Estonia is part of the State Partnership Program, which brings together U.S. states and territories and their National Guard units with new and emerging democracies. O'Malley is scheduled to meet with a variety of military and civilian leaders on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

On Wednesday, he is scheduled to be in Sweden for what is being billed as an economic development mission focused on bio and "clean-technology" industries.

Thank God O'Malley is headed to Europe. Perhaps with him out of the country, the state will be that much better, at least for a few days.

If we take up a collection, could we convince him to stay in Europe? Perhaps in Holland where he can legally take dope. There would be a certain symmetry in a dope taking dope.
