More Bad Government in MD

Hey, it is just not MA and VA that I pick on. Really I haven't even opened up on my current state, AL, either. But this story from The Washington Post indicates why reasonable people are sick of politics. The state has had one, ONE, Republican governor in the last 25 years or so. He lost last year to a Democrat. The state head of education was appointed by the last Democratic governor in 1991. She is identified with Republicans. Her term is set by law, and will not be up for a few more years, but the new Democratic governor wants his own person there. The Democratic controlled Senate and House are planning on passing a law that would end her term early, so that the Dems can pick a Democratic hack for the job. By-the-way, MD schools were just ranked third in the nation? Petty politics at its worst.
