QuintonReport – Republican Delegate Pat McDonough (D-7) Tells Blogger To Leave Maryland For Asking A Question About HB1513 .March 17, 2014
(A doofus – One who is stupid or foolish, from the German word “doof” for stupid.)
The QuintonReport did not call Del. Pat McDonough a “doofus”. The Quinton Report just reported RedMarylands Brian Griffths saying , “Face it, Pat McDonough is a doofus. You know it. I know it. He probably knows it. He’s a third rate elected official whose ego is not commiserate with the noticible lack of intellecual capacity.” When asked about the curious HB 1513, McDonough suggested in an e-mail that Jeff Quinton should go back to South Carolina. I misread the post and suggested that the Quinton Report called McDonough a “doofus”.

SeventhState- M-D James Strong In Harford D34… James Funding Ability Indicates A Depth of Support …Raised $84K In 2014… James Electorial Record Likely Intimidates …Primary Rating: Likey JamesMarch 13, 2014
SeventhState doesnt ask too many questions of the “intimidating” Delegate James. Like how does raising $84K in 2014 show a depth of support and not a depth of special interest support. Show me where the $84K comes from! Theres no mention of how she held the hotel tax up for ransom, and withdrew the bill when she and her special interest CCRC couldnt get a 15 year tax break in Aberdeen. Theres no mention how she was intimidated by the Harford Republican delegation to support a bill to demand “English Only” in Harford County government operations. She was intimidated by a Tea Party gun rally to vote against common sense gun control in Maryland. She was intimidated by the Republican delegation to oppose marriage equality and the dream act for immigrants. She’s been intimidated by special interests on environmental reform. Yes she is from a strong political family but Senator William S. James was a strong modertate Democrat who would not have been intimidated by the prejudices and histrionics of his time. The Senate primary in District 34 will be a donnybrook over public interests versus special interests. I’d say Primary Rating: Leaning Helton.
Riddle – Q: Whats the opposite of Glenn Glass? A: Pat Murray
South Harford Countys Delegate Glenn Glass (R-Dist 34) is perhaps the most incompetant legislator in Annapolis. In four years he has accomplished nothing. He doesnt know what he’s doing. He has no understanding of his job as an elected legislator. How could he? His prior experience was a two-year hitch in the Army and he was a laborer at a recycling plant. Last week he made a complete fool of himself attacking smart meters saying: “I believe smart meters only benefit the utility companies and not the citizens of Maryland.” No qualifications. No experiece in politics, No political connections except for the racially-challenged Know Nothing Tea Party Republicans Impallaria and McDonough(Dist 7). No results. Zip a dee do dah.
Then there is Pat Murphy. He grew up in Bel Air—North Harford not South Harford. Thats like the differance between Brooklyn and the Bronx. But for six years he was a legislative assistant to the two most powerful state legislators in Maryland —- Senate President Mike Miller and speaker of the House Michael Busch. Since then he has worked as a savy campaign strategist in Governor races and congressional races in Virginia, Kansas, New York, and Utah. He currently works as a legislative lobbyist for Johns Hopkins University. He knows the political process. He has connections and influence with the politically powerful. He knows what the job of a legislator is and he knows how to do it. In his own words: “Its all about sending folks to Annapolis who are able to get results for the county and I think I’m better equiped to do that than anybody in the race.”
So he is not from South Harford. Bel Air is still politically, John Wilkes Booths home town. And even ex-Bel Air Councilman and Mayor Bob Casssilly (contact info: 112 Broadway,Bel air, Md) is running for South Harford State Senate(Dist 34). I know Steve Johnson and Mary Ann Lisanti are supposed to be the next delegates in 34 and Marla Posey Moss and Maria Terry want a shot …but Pat Murphy is a progressive who can get results for Harford. Maybe he should tell everyone he’s from South Bel Air?
