Did you see John Sarbanes’ congressional campaign ad? He won the primary and is favored in the general because of the lean of the 3rd CD, but what a cheesy ad.

And you’ve got to feel for Alan Lichtman and his wife, Karyn Strickler, who mortgaged their home and spent months running hard for the U.S. Senate. Few thought they had a real chance, but finishing behind someone who this writer has never even heard of? I mean, Mfume and Cardin were the clear leaders, Rales bought a few % points with $4 million, and Rasmussen (fmr. Balt. Count. Exec) had name recognition in his area and a few moderate voters. But unless voters thought that someone named Michael Schaefer was the former governor and Balto mayor, you’ve got to wonder how this happened. Who is Michael Schaefer?

I’m feeling just magnanimous enough about the election (most of my picks won) that I’m not going to bag on people, but if you want a list of winners and losers

Lichtman lost my vote with the "Hillary Clinton & Alan Lichtman: Two Winners" billboard in Hampden.

In Hampden? Bad choice unless it was aimed at northbound commuter traffic. John Murtha and Lichtman would have been a better choice there.
