MEANWHILE, THE DEMOCRATS SHAFT ANOTHER BROTHER:

Cardin Leads in Md. Senate Race (Matthew Mosk and John Wagner, , September 13, 2006, Washington Post)

Maryland's Democratic primary voters gave Baltimore Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin a commanding lead over former NAACP president Kweisi Mfume this morning in the race to be the party's candidate for U.S. Senate, but chaos at polling sites delayed final results for that and other key races.

Selected, not elected!

Kweisi Mfume can try that tactic, but unlike, say, Florida, his pleas will be heard in the big media outlets about like a tree falling in the most distant forest.

Did the MD State Police block off roads and send minority voters down blind alleys? Were they unplugging voting machines? Were they telling old folks to come back the next day? Were they hustling people out of the voting booths because they were taking too long?

How long before these old FL myths are brought up?

The myths were brought up on the Post's Maryland blog--that the voting problems in Montgomery County and elsewhere were some sort of plot. By whom, against whom, wasn't exactly clear. Rather astonishing. And pathetic.

It was amusing when Mfume said he was looking for the guy with 19,000 votes in his pocket. I don't know why he couldn't find him--Glendening was able to find a guy with 6,000+ votes in 1994.

More importantly, will the white guy beat the black dude in the mayor's race on The Wire?
