The times, they are a changin'

The US Senate race in Maryland is a statistical dead heat as of today. This week, Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R) picked up an unbelievable endorsement from the state's leading Black democrats, including the son of the former head of the NAACP, from Prince Georges county. PG county is the second largest political jurisdiction in the state, heavily Black and democratic.

From Investors Business Daily:
"The endorsements are "going to go through the black community like a rocket," predicts University of Maryland political scientist Ron Walters. "It's going to be the talk of the county, the state, maybe even the nation."

Steele, a Catholic who once trained for the priesthood, was inspired to join the Republican Party by Ronald Reagan's failed 1976 presidential bid. Steele demonstrated in an appearance at the party's 2004 convention that he has charisma, warmth and a keen grasp of public policy. He's also demonstrated this as lieutenant governor, a fact not lost on Maryland's black voters and leaders."

"That giant sucking sound you hear is the wind leaving the Democrats' sails."

Only a few more days of suspense!
