Analogy of Steele

As Lt. Gov. Michael Steele expands the campaign team that will assist in his U.S. Senate bid, it seems there's a bit of branding going on.

When Steele announced his bid, he billed himself as a bridge -- a bridge of steel -- between the various factions that have turned D.C. so divisive.

When he formed a committee of women to support his bid, they wore t-shirts declaring them, "Women of Steele."

This morning, the 6-foot-4 lieutenant governor announced the formation of grassroots organizers. Who are they? Of course: "Steele Workers."

So when he loses, will the Steele have rusted?

They've been called Steele workers for a while; at least six months. That ain't new.

Conversely, when he wins, bitter Democrats will likley accuse him of "Steeleing" the election.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Michael Steele is a joke.

Byron, from a man who supports Peter Franchot, I'm not sure you have much room to speak.
