at least chevy chase is closer than . . .

Grosvenor-Strathmore, where Steele held a Purple Line press conference earlier the other day:
"This is where they told me to come . . . I'm not trying to draw any distinction between inner and outer. I'm focused on the Purple Line." - Michael Steele on a failed Purple Line media event
Doesn't anyone know where the Purple Line goes? Anyone running for elected office, at least?

UPDATE: Video! (thanks to MoCoPolitics for the heads-up.) You can see the B.S. falling from Steele's mouth as he's grilled by the press . . .

I promise to have a trolley up and running between the Silver Spring and Bethesada Metro stops within two years, something Leggett wasn't able to get done within l6 years.

What does "1.2 billion dollars of opportunity" mean? Is this looking at the possible Purple Line cost more from a profit-making opportunity for construction companies standpoint than from a how do we improve transporation for everyone standpoint?

Just how much (or little) transit does that $1.2 Billion buy?

It's good to see that these candidates are getting grilled for this insanity. All it takes is 4 magic cities folks: Bethesday, Silver Spring, College Park, New Carrolton. I can see all four of them benefiting greatly as transit hubs.
