I’ve been studying my central committee history. Oh MY GOD!

It looks like we have an elite establishment party that is hell bent on power at all costs and that includes abandoning conservative principles and the voters.

I am outraged by the rule 11 waiver and the way it was done. Rule 11 was controversial from the beginning.

I’m trying to get the media to pay attention to this issue.

It looks like Bob Ehrlich has been anointed by the party elite so why do we bother having a primary election?

I will never again hold my nose and vote for a RINO like Ehrlich and I hope the majority of Maryland conservatives feel the same way.

We have to stop this merry go round. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

I’m supporting Brian Murphy. Have you checked him out?

I don’t care if Republicans lose in the general.We have got to send a message.


All I can do we I see stuff like this is shake my head. Not because people support Brian Murphy, it’s that people support Brian Murphy do so in a way which in no way celebrates the virtues of Brian Murphy, but instead serves merely to take down the presumptive Republican nominee Bob Ehrlich….a nominee which, I point out again. Red Maryland has already enthusiastically endorsed.

Look, I am on record as saying that the Republican Party should stay out of primary elections. I do not believe that the Rule 11 implementation was handled very well. And I’m also on record personally liking Brian Murphy….

But the incessant complaining about Rule 11 from the Murphy camp is self-defeating because:

  1. Rule 11 is, for lack of a better term, within the party rules; and,
  2. It isn’t like Rule 11 is what is swinging the primary to Bob Ehrlich.

Right now 97% of the Republcian Party leaders, candidates, and activists are working to defeat Martin O’Malley. We’re not going to let the 3% that are navel gazing distract us from that.
