Not a Fair Fight

Support Jim Talent in Missouri, of course -- but please, please support Michael Steele, running for the Senate in Maryland, too.

He's wiped the floor with Ben Cardin this morning on "Meet the Press." Cardin is an embarassment, and Steele is passionate, assertive, articulate and intelligent. It wasn't even a fair fight.
