This should be good news for Michael Steele:
Long before yesterday’s debate began, it was clear that Michael Steele was going to use his only televised meeting with Ben Cardin aimed at the Washington market to make the case that Cardin doesn’t know beans about the D.C. area.
And sure enough, with just a couple of well-aimed questions, Steele, who grew up in the District and lives in Prince George’s County, managed to transform his Baltimore-centric opponent in the U.S. Senate race into a stammering, defensive congressman from another planet — or, at least, from a part of Maryland where nobody knows or cares about Metro’s proposed Purple Line.
Of course Casey in Pa. proved to be a zero too in his debates. But the media didn’t agree…because the sometimes live on another planet.
