Ehrlich to announce running mate on Facebook

John Wagner

One of the new facets of former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. version 2010 is his extensive use of Facebook -- where more than 25,000 people "like" his page, compared to the roughly 10,000 who have signed on with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D).

Later this week, Ehrlich (R) will reward his Facebook followers by making them "the first to know" about his selection of a running mate, according to a new video released Monday by his campaign.

"It's an exciting place to be," Ehrlich says of Facebook in the video, which can be seen below.

Ehrlich says his announcement -- which is generating a good deal of speculation, as we reported Monday morning -- is coming "in a couple days."

Last time, Ehrlich chose someone as his running mate who was both a token and who is even dumber than he is.

It will be interesting to see if he can repeat that combination again.

One of the primary reasons Ehrlich lost in 2006, was his poor choice of running mates. One of the primary reason Ehrlich won in 2002 was his wise choice of running mates.

An appropriate choice in 2010 would be an African American woman. I would highly recommend Sharon Pinder, the state's first Secretary of Minority Affairs.

Ehrlich/Pinder is a bold winning ticket anyway you look at it.

If Ehrlich really wants to play the token quota thing, pick a women of African American, Hispanic, Asian American, Middle Eastern, and Indian descent. That should cover most the bases.

Ehrlich on Facebook is like Nixon showing up on "Laugh-in". Yeah, I'm old enough to remember that!

Ehrlich is actually lamer than Nixon.

I think it is someone involved in education or schools reform from Montgomery County. He's doing a lot on that issue and it would make sense to double down. Stokes, Grasmick, or Allen.
