    You should see how this great “leader” acts behind closed doors … talk to his ex-wife, talk to real advocates on health care and domestic violence. This guy is no more than a pitbull trying to disguise himself as any other kind of dog.

    Thanks to the O’Malley/Brown administration I’m showing them how their disasterous session forced me to pack up and leave Maryland for Texas. Who ever thinks West Virginia is a great place to live needs their heads examined.
