Skip to comments.MD. Dem Guv candidate summons dead early

NBC evening news for Sat. 10/18 had a report on how Lt. Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is apparently running gun-issue ads showing Columbine to defame her GOP opponent, Bob Ehrlich. The reporter DID say that polls showed it may be "backfiring" some fifty-odd percent to twenty-eight percent.
IF this close race ends in another Glendenning style, last-minute-after-midnight-inner city-vote count, then NO ONE should complain!
Remember, the late money goes to the candidate that is likely to win. Keep praying for Ehrlich/Steele and get out there and vote.
By the way, I wonder how much additional money was raised by Ehrlich by folks who were sick about the Clintoons showing up in Maryland. I hope a whole lot!
I agree that the media's a major contributing factor, but do we hear them talking about confiscating televisions?
Yes. Maryland is the most liberal state in the south and overrun with idiots who voted for Gore.
Ehrlich is winning because people dislike Townsend so much; not because they like Republicans.
That's not fair. How else do you expect her to get the customary Dim 104+% of the black vote?
Yes. I have been volunteering for the Ehrlich campaign, and I have been assured that there will be GOP monitors at the Baltimore polling places (I assume those are the ones you are referring to)
I agree that this is the most important part of Ehrlich's campaign.
Not me. That was pollwatcher,the poster who started this thread.
graveyard mean anything neighbor? They've used the skull factory more than once in an election. I don't think they will hesitate now.
I live in MD and KK Townsend is running commercials everywhere and going neg. I don't see what Ehrlich's campaign is spending their money on...one add, kind of a lame one at that.
True, but Bush is very popluar here now & Ehrlich isn't taking advantage of it. If he loses by 1%, it will be because he didn't use the Bush endorsement when he could have.
Tom Marr once observed that the GOP observers in some of the questionable districts were "Republicans in name only." I hope we have a handle on this.
If Bob uses Bush, look for Kathy to invoke her deceased family in ads to push the buttons of the faithful
My fear is this: with the race being so close, and the choices so clear, the DIM establishment will only need to do a little tweaking to put enough votes over, ala '94. And with them running the whole show, there will be nowhere we can find justice ("takin' it to the streets?" :-) )
My fear, too. But the Ehrlich campaign knows this, and his staffers keep assuring me that they are watching closely.
If Ehrlich loses, it will be because his campaign has underestimated the lengths to which the Dims will go to win. The Dims are blatantly cheating in many states. They're counting on a stupid electorate to let them get away with it.
If the fraud occurs, the GOP has lost. Media reaction isn't as important as the GOP poll watchers who might prevent it.
And, speaking in terms of unintended consequences, many people are thinking that the sniper attacks in Mont. Co. might keep the turn-out low. Since that is one of the three Dem strongholds in the state, that is bad news for the dims.
And who can forget the infamous Sun paper cartoon of a judge's mallet being brought down (and violently squishing) "Ellen Sourgrapes?" "Ha-ha. They got her!" The DIM led leaders and the DIM following media won't pick up on the charges, even if they're made. Plus, they can always rely on The Jackson Faction comin' to town to blow the "voter intimidation" smokescreen to cover their dirty tracks.
Now, the shooter is caught(?) - (so the DIM districts are free to do their underhanded deeds). But he wasn't an EVILLLL white male NRA militia guy who bought all his weapons in the Free state. So the DEMs won't get as much anti-GOP, NRA traction as they might hope.
Yes, I remember that, and the cartoon (groan). That's why I think the GOP has to be at the polls to prevent the cheating in the first place. Any after-the-fact investigation will favor the Dems.
Now that there isn't a sniper threat, the Dems will be at the polls. But the GOP could get traction from the sniper if they tried. Ballistics testing or more gun laws would not have stopped the killings. Now the issue is what will happen to the perps. spendenning and kkt have a moratorium on the death penalty, particularly for Blacks. But a lot of people who have been terrorized by these jerks for weeks would be happy to see them fry. I'd like to see Ehrlich make the discussion about the death penalty, and not gun control laws.
Please Pass Emergency Anti-Vote Fraud Measure Immediately!
Vote fraud threatens the very core of our republic, and it directly threatens our sovereignty
Please send the following message to your Congressmen and Senators:
Please pass, on an expedited basis, emergency legislation to require voters to show ID at all polling places on Election Day.
Vote fraud threatens the very core of our republic, and it directly threatens our sovereignty. There is a significant amount of evidence emerging that evinces a wide-spread plot to engage in massive voter fraud. Thus, Congress must take immediate action to counter this potential menace.
Congress has the express power to dictate the time, place, and manner in which federal elections are held. The congressional power to make or alter time, place, or manner of federal elections extends to the regulation of voter registration. Federal regulation of the electoral processes, including the regulation of federal voter registration, is also consistent with the Tenth Amendment and permissible; although states do have broad discretion to enact and implement registration procedures, states may not transgress the Constitution. It follows that state voter registration and Election Day statutes that are inconsistent with federal voter registration and Election Day mandates are preempted.
As per the Federal Court in Byrd v. Brice, the government may require a voter to furnish proof of identity at the polling place on Election Day. Such a measure would go a long way in protecting citizens federal voting rights from fraudulent practices.
Please set to work immediately on enacting emergency legislation to require a valid ID at the polling places on Election Day.
