Rich compared Ben Cardin to a brick in a wall - as the mortar is wearing away, soon the brick would drop from the wall and the remainder of the house would follow. And Douglas wasn't going to be timid in his role, either, warning "Martin O'Malley is going to be one unhappy fella" when Rich wins. "(He'll) wish he'd never heard my name," continued Douglas, because he has a "duty to speak" as a Senator. Douglas promised to be our voice and vote in the Senate. http://monoblogue.us/2012/03/26/wcrc-meeting-march-2012/

It's likely he's hammering incumbent Ben Cardin on his lack of support for the DeMint amendment to lower the federal gasoline tax and begin devolving the federal program to states, or Cardin's reluctance to decry the "Annapolis tax-a-thon," as Rich called it in a recent statement. http://monoblogue.us/2012/03/23/controversy-erupts-in-u-s-senate-race/
