Howling Latina was punked by Dana Priest in a Washington Post article. Never, ever assume ANYTHING when reading a news story.
This morning, HL wrote about a Milbank column about a distraught Senate candidate who was lamenting his GOP brand; and immediately ass-u-med that the senator was running for reelection.
But alas, although the secret senator is indeed running for the Senate, not a darn thing in the story referred to a reelection fight, only a political brawl.
And yes, when referring to "Bush's low standing in his home state," Ohio applies, but so does Maryland and a few other states as well.
The secret is out; and the mystery senator is Republican Senate candidate Michael Steele of Maryland.
Sorry folks, HL gave you a bum steer; but Milbank did say the quoted senator was "immersed in one of the most competitive Senate races in the country," and right now things ain't looking too good for Steele or his former running mate, Gov. Bob Ehrlich.
