If you haven’t seen it yet, go out and pick yourself up a copy of September’s Frederick Magazine. Inside you will find an article entitled “Politics in the Blogosphere” by the very talented Katherine Heerbrandt. Upon those glossy pages you’ll get a good scoop on your favorite blog, Frederick County Fact Check (http://www.frederickcountyfactcheck.org), and some other guys. It’s only $3.95, and you’ll be supporting your local print media. (While you are at it pick up the Washingtonian as well. There’s a very good article about Frederick politics. Your Lady Yokels were also contacted, however, due to busy summer schedules we were not able to make time to talk with the reporter).
While we are sure many of our readers will thoroughly enjoy the Frederick Magazine article, we were contacted via email with some unsolicited advice from one of the other bloggers who was mentioned very briefly in the story. He feels that we are never going to be taken seriously as journalists if we don’t reveal our identities. Curious that it is impossible to debate ideas without the opportunity to engage in ad hominem attacks, isn’t it? And now, we must reiterate that anyone mistaking us for journalists absolutely must read a real newspaper, whether you like it or not. We are not attempting to provide journalism. This is infotainment, people. As to why we choose to feature Blaine, again…infotainment. He is bursting with infotainment potential. For example, he appears to think Kirby Delauter will be our next County Executive (which just is not nice to Kirby, being honest). He also seems to be looking at a run in D5, so brace yourself for the infinite infotainment. SorryNotSorry.

One thought on “Your Yokel Ladies are famous y’all!”
Kirby Delauter has no chance to win the CE position in the next election. What has he done for the County in his present position. Particularly at the last meeting, Shrevlauter argued against a $12 million grant to be given to the County to buy fire protective equipment and, fund firefighting positions. The argument that hiring 41 positions would raise taxes after the 2nd year because the grant would run out, and the taxpayer would be on the hook for their services is ridiculous. There are 25,000 houses in the pipeline. Home buyer’s might like the idea that Frederick has enough emergency response personnel to protect their new communities. This is especially ludicrous since they approved all these developments while they were on the BOCC. I am particularly humored when Shreve accused Bud Otis of raising taxes because he voted for accepting the grant. It takes a majority on the County Council to do anything. If they really are interested in being productive why don’t they give their full participation during meetings, and stop being “obstructionists”. When roll call is taken, I love when Shreve answers “NO”. I can only assume he does not know if he is coming or going! When Kirby runs for CE, he can use his great debating skills by calling his opponent a “CHICKESH*T.” Their glorious leader, Frederick’s “Human trafficker”, can run on his reputation for honesty. He honestly screws everyone he can, physically and financially. The Frederick County’s good ole boy network is gone forever! If district 5 wants him, no other district will attempt to interfere. They can have him!
