A real Steele

Michael Steele (chair of the RNC, not the DNC, in case you didn't notice)is a total loose cannon. Read this paragraph from a recent AP article:

"Remember, it was the base that rejected Mitt because of his switch on pro-life, from pro-choice, to pro-life," Steele said. "It was the base that rejected Mitt because it had issues with Mormonism. It was the base that rejected Mitch, uh, Mitt, because they thought he was back and forth and waffling on those very economic issues you're talking about. I mean, so, I hear what you're saying, but before we even got to a primary vote, the base had made very clear they had issues with Mitt because if they didn't, he would have defeated John McCain in those primaries in which he lost."

Here's the whole article, in case you wish to be further entertained. I know he must drive some of the "base" crazy, but the guy's candor is quite rare in a world in which Democratic and Republic pols (well, maybe not Jim Bunning) watch every word that comes out of their unnaturally whitened teeth because they are so concerned about what some Beltway bloggete will write about them. I mean, Mitt Romney is likely to be a Presidential candidate in 2012. If Steele lasts that long in his post, he's going to have to get his name right...

Heh, I like Mr. Steel.I don't think he'll be around in 2012 though.thinking of this it occurs to me we hve not heard much from bobby shindel.the party does seem to be adrift with no message,no leader,and few options.
