Kendel Ehrlich radio show to continue

Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. doesn't plan to return to his WBAL-AM radio show but his wife Kendel will continue to host the show solo.

But the former governor called in this morning to encourage young people to get into politics and thank supporters. "It is a very worthy career," he said. Ehrlich also said politics can be a "vicious" business.

He did not comment on the robo-call encouraging voters to stay home that went out hours before polls closed. Our Sun colleague Justin Fenton reported Friday that the call was funded by a Democratic operative on the Ehrlich payroll. (Awkwardly, the story was the lead item on WBAL's brief breakaway for news.)

Kendel Ehrlich also didn't mention the flap. But she did say there is a "sting" in the Ehrlich household over the election. "We fought the good fight," she said. "We are proud that we tried." She said the couple thought they could "thread the needle" one more time and win in a state that is majority Democratic.

Why on earth would anyone want to hear this female bag of gas. She and her empty suite ex-"Gov" should fade into the woodwork gracefully. Folks fired him when times were good and he did nothing to make them better. A 13% trouncing should be a hint for ole Kendel to tend to home chores and stay off the airwaves.

if a tree falls in the forest, and nobody is there, does it make a noise?
If Kendel is on the radio........
