Bo Harmon, Welcome to Maryland

from The League: Reassembled

Gov. Ehrlich is taking a page from President Bush's playbook.

No, I'm not talking about deceptively linking the Iraq War to 9/11 (although Ehrlich did just that as recently as November 29).

The Governor has adopted the strategy of hiring an unethical advisor to do his political dirtywork. With someone else carrying out the more sullied tactics behind-the-scenes, Ehrlich is free to engage in the most despicable of politics without tarnishing his friendly, regular-guy-from-Arbutus image.

Its just like the Bush-Rove team. Rove engages in all the reprehensible tactics so Bush can preserve his nice-guy image.

And now, with Joseph "The Prince of Darkness" Steffen out of the picture, Ehrlich had to turn elsewhere to find the lowliest of politicos.

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Ehrlich hired Bo Harmon to direct his 2006 gubernatorial campaign.

Harmon is responsible for the 2002 Senate race in Georgia in which Max Cleland, a Vietnam vet who lost three limbs in that war, was accused of being unpatriotic. Harmon oversaw a TV commercial that linked Cleland with Osama and Saddam.

And now Harmon's in Maryland by way of Ehrlich. Talk about bringing Washington-style politics to The Free State.
