Guess who was wearing a "Michael Steele for Senate" t-shirt this week?

How about Mike Tyson? And he had it on while he was spewing his latest bit of insanity, suggesting that he would like to 'fight women.' Yeah, I guess he still misses smacking Robin Givens around.

That's right, Maryland Senatorial candidate Michael Steele is getting help from Tyson.

Steele is the brother of Monica Turner, who was married to Tyson for five years.

Tyson, a walking disaster who is best remembered for spending five years in prison for rape, and for biting a piece off of Evander Holyfield's ear in the ring, said just this weekend that he would like to 'fight women, children and celebrities.' The obvious fact that he was convicted of raping a minor and has been a wife-beater aside, Tyson only makes himself seem like more of a buffoon every time he makes a statement like that. But when he made that statement while wearing one of Michael Steele's t-shirts, you'd think that Steele's campaign would condemn it. After all a member of the U.S. Senate will be expected to deal with domestic violence issues and shouldn't have to think twice about condemning this kind of stupid statement.

Steele's camp said that Tyson is not involved in the campaign. Probably a good decision, but not one made by Steele. Earlier this year Steele said in response to a request by Tyson to campaign for him that he would welcome the help "in a heartbeat."

There are some people who should never open their mouth, but if they do, then hope it isn't to praise you.

Yep. I guess the old platitude is true: It's better to remain silent and let people think you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Russell Pearce was my guess, until I read your post. :))
