Shrinking Republican Opportunities

This is funny. Golden boy Michael Steele, the African-American running for the Senate in Maryland, was supposed to be the new face of the Republican Party. Then he started talking, comparing stretching the truth about this uncorroborated "pelted with Oreos" story, stem cell research to the Holocaust (in front of a Jewish audience!), and generally making such a mess of things that his campaign manager quit. And presto, he's way down in the polls against prospective Democratic nominee Ben Cardin.

How to Blow a Senate Race in 10 Days, starring Mr. Steele, will be coming to a theater near you this November.
