Md. Dems mimic and mock Ehrlich on new Web site

Last week, former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) used his Facebook page to ask fans what new features they would like to see on his redesigned Web site, www.bobehrlich.com.

Ehrlich has gotten a little more help than he probably wanted from the Maryland Democratic Party. On Thursday morning, the party unveiled an entire Web site, www.bobehrlich.org, that mimics the look of the real thing -- but includes some less flattering information.

Ehrlich's site touts him as "Maryland's future." The Democrats' site touts him as "Maryland's past."

The "Message from Bob" on the fake site is also a little different than what's offered on the real site.

Here's the Democratic version: "When I lost my election in 2006, I didn't know what my next step would be. Then I realized I could still work for my special interests while I waited for another election to come around. Surely my special interest friends would pay me directly for a few years while we both waited for my return to office."

There's more, but you get the idea.

Ehrlich is widely expected to make his rematch with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) official late this month. Today's action by the Democrats is the latest sign that the party is not waiting around for him.

Those close to Owe'Malley must be getting scared. It is a great thing to see them going after Governor Ehrlich this early. They know that they cannot defend the current Governor's record, so the only alternative is to attack. I am quite sure that the memory of the majority of Marylanders (both Democrats and Republicans) is sound enough to recall the differences between our state 4 years ago compared to how it is now.

Cute, I guess. I kinda doubt a ".org" address will get much traffic though. Mayeb a ".net" would have been better.

BTW Harford, I'll defend Omalley's records as long as you wanna talk.

I could be wrong, but isn't that Drum Point Lighthouse? If so, is he "Maryland's future" if he's posing in front of a museum piece?

Interesting that this blog reports MDDem attacks on Ehrlich but omits attacks on MDDems.
