Maryland Democrat Representative Steny Hoyer calls Michael Steele 'Slavish'

Steele tries to defy history in Maryland contest

"Cardin, a dry and detailed-oriented career legislator, was upstaged at his Upper Marlboro event Sunday by the irrepressible Rep. Steny Hoyer, who did a comedy routine about the event’s host, Cool Wave Water, and told the audience that Steele had had 'a career of slavishly supporting the Republican Party.' " MSNBC

Cardin apparently approves of Hoyer's remarks, so don't expect an apology. Dem's rarely do, although Hillary did apologize to McCain the other day for a remark made by one of her staffers.

Here's a follow up story from The Washington Post on Rep. Steny Hoyer’s comment during an event for Ben Cardin that Republican Senatorial Candidate Michael Steele has “slavishly” supported the Republican Party. You won't see an apology here. In fact, Cardin assails Mr. Steele for being offended. Only in a liberal mind can one make sense of this.

According to this CNN report Hoyer issued this statement, "I should not have used those words." He further added, "If Mr. Steele did in fact take offense, let me assure him that none was intended," Hoyer said. "But Mr. Steele continuously tries to divert attention from the fact that he is an unwavering supporter of the Republican agenda and of President Bush and Vice President Cheney."

Yes, Mr. Hoyer you are right. Mr. Steele, a Republican running for office, has no business supporting the Republican agenda. This is such a dirty trick. Who would have ever thought this. Another Rovian trick. Perhaps the most devious plan he has devised to date.
