Ehrlich's opinions are strictly party line [Letter]

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.

The Baltimore Sun's op-ed page is valuable real estate. One would hope it would provide a home for people with interesting, creative, perhaps unorthodox perspectives on current events. This is what I have not seen from Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. whose views track closely with the current right-wing talking points.

Mr. Ehrlich's most recent column ("Musings on intolerant lefties and wars on women," May 18) is a prime example. It includes an attack on "college lefties," then on Sandra Fluke's "desire to enjoy taxpayer-financed sex" (Obamacare attack, part 1), as opposed to the suit against the Affordable Care Act brought by the Little Sisters of the Poor (Obamacare attack, part 2), ending with a ritual reference to Benghazi (let's not forget Hillary Clinton).

We've heard these over and over in the right-wing echo chamber. Let's reserve the op-ed page for more original voices.
