Sorry, I couldn't help but steal, err, borrow that title.
The Investor's Business Daily has a great piece on Sen. Schumer delving into Michael Steele's credit report.
Apparently nothing frightens the DSCC more than an articulate and charismatic black American who also happens to be a Reagan conservative. How else to explain the behavior of two of Schumer's campaign committee members — research director Katie Barge and junior staffer Lauren Weiner — who dug for dirt using Steele's Social Security number, reportedly culled from court records, to fraudulently and illegally obtain his credit report?
Can you imagine the media firestorm if staffers for, say, Frist, had used
Barack Obama's Social Security number to fraudulently obtain his credit report
looking for stuff to derail his Senate campaign? Frist would have been before a media firing squad faster than you can say Bill Bennett.

It's great to see that not everyone in the media has forgetten about this.
