You Gotta Lov our Gov

Got this message earlier today:
In today's Baltimore Sun, John Kane, Governor Ehrlich's hand-picked GOP Party Chair, called Democratic leaders in Maryland "left leaning liberal bastards" and "bozos," and suggested that they "grow up" rather than continue to explore changes to the state's election laws that include expanding voter rights and moving the primary election date.
For a Gov who took us all to task for dissing him when he gave the State of the State in January this is a little much.
Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. used his annual State of the State address yesterday to urge the Democrat-led legislature to sweep from Annapolis a brand of "Capitol Hill assassin politics" he said has degraded state government.
But then, as the mailing I got reminded me, Bobby Boy got his start at the knee of Newt Gringrich.
"I think one of the great problems we have in the Republican Party is that we don't encourage you to be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, loyal and faithful and all those Boy Scout words, which would be great around a campfire but are lousy in politics."
Are we witnessing the coming apart of the Republican machine? Usually when these things happen, they find something to rally around (and not a poor, comatose Floridinian). They'll come up with some way to salvage this. Newt and Karl are just to evil to go down without a fight.
