Renegades only, please

Richard Cross, a former speechwriter for Bob Ehrlich who became a vocal critic of "strategic missteps" made by his campaign four years ago and again this year, is ready for a revolution.

"[A] bunch of us will be celebrating the rising renegade movement in Maryland GOP politics by hosting a 'Renegades Room' at the state Republican convention on the evening of December 10, 2010 at the Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis," Cross writes on his politics and pop culture blog, Cross Purposes

Cross writes that he has reserved a hotel suite for "free-thinking" Maryland Republicans who are ready to shake up the party.

"[P]lease keep in mind that the organizers of the event reserve the right to control access to the room," he writes. "In other words, legitimate renegades are welcome, but those who foment trouble simply for self-serving reasons are not."

Can these renegades manage to promote a few more paper tiger Democrat candidates (eg KKT) so the R candidates might actually get a chance to have chance to prove they aren't (also) just more of the same?

Otherwise, they may as well go down to the Country Club, have a few pricey drinks, and whine and complain along with the rest of their fellows.

Mr. Rational,

I basically agree with you, but until people stop using their religion as a basis for telling other people how to live their lives, it is not going to happen.
