Another embarassment for the Republican candidate for the US Senate from Maryland

In his Opinion Journal essay on the Maryland US Senate race

James Taranto makes the amazing claim:

"Mr. Steele tells me, and my research confirms, that the state has never sent a conservative Republican to the chamber."

Mr. Steele is the Republican candidate. He got into hot water when he compared stem cell research to the holocaust:

Mr. Steele's handlers forgot to explain that Jews don't have a problem with most stem cell research:

Well, his handlers also neglected to tell him that if you go back far enough, you DO find conservative Republicans representing Maryland in the US Senate. I grew up on Maryland and am old enough to remember J. Glenn Beall, Jr., elected to one term in 1970. His father, J. Glenn Beall, served two terms (initially elected 1952). In addition, John M. Butler served two terms, initially elected 1950 against the equally conservative Millard Tydings thanks in part to a doctored photograph showing Tydings meeting with a communist leader (these were McCarthy Red Scare days).

Mr. Steele should hire some handlers who read more than Republican propaganda sheets -- and Mr. Taranto should get himself new researchers.

Thanks for the helpful reminder of how nasty and spiteful fans of the Democratic party are.

Real knowledge, like everything else of value, is not to be obtained easily.
