"That's why I get paid" 

My home state of Maryland has committed murder against an unarmed individual man:
Maryland Executes Oken

A trio of chemicals -- color-coded red, green and blue by a team of hidden executioners -- was pumped into Oken's veins starting at 9:09 p.m. Within minutes, they rendered him unconscious, paralyzed his lungs and, finally, stopped his heart. Witnesses said there were no complications.
Well, looks like Justice was served. Just the way Jesus would have liked it, no doubt.
At 5:08 p.m., Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s office faxed the defense a three-paragraph statement announcing that the governor had denied a request to partially commute Oken's capital sentence to life without parole.

Ehrlich (R), a strong supporter of the death penalty, repeatedly had pledged since taking office that he would carefully review any case that came before him. This was his first opportunity to do so, and Ehrlich wrote that he had employed "a deliberative process," examining all the facts and judicial opinions, and "as thoughtful decision making as I am able to summon in this so tragic matter."

In an interview earlier in the day, Ehrlich said he was not troubled by the weight of the decision. "That's why I get paid," he said. "Executives make decisions. If you have difficulty making tough decisions, maybe you shouldn't be an executive. It's part of the job."
Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is now guilty of murder. He should be arrested, locked up, and tried as a murderer. He will also, if the Christian view of the cosmos is accurate, have to face God and the possibility of spending eternity in hell for being an unrepentant murderer.

Apart from whatever issues Ehrlich may or not have pending before the seat of Divine Justice, it is obvious that he is an evil Republican son of a bitch who cares as little for human life as his evil robotic Republican cohorts.

Shame on the people of Maryland for electing this motile, sound-emitting, convict-murdering, SUV-driving column of solid shit.
