Michael Steele pull it out?
We might know before the end of the day
The race for the Republican
National Committee chairmanship is heating up -- with Wisconsin
GOP Chairman Reince Priebus now having emerged as the frontrunni9ng
White guy to defeat
the incumbent Black man, Chairman Michael Steele (R-Tom).
The next big event to watch is today, when the candidates will meet for
hosted by Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform.
In many ways, it seems odd that
Steele could very well lose, after a cycle in which the GOP
made big gains in offices large and small. And if there's one thing
we've learned about Steele,
it's that he has an impressive ability to weather scandals and gaffes
that would fell others. But now,
after all those gaffes and scandals, his opponents are now striking
back in the open at election time.
Steele faces a crowded field of challengers that includes: Priebus, a
former Steele ally whose
smashing success at painting his state red this year has helped him
shoot to the top; former Michigan
GOP chair Saul Anuzis (also a previous 2009 RNC candidate, and the
first challenger to get in this time);
former Bush Administration official Maria Cino (who has been endorsed
by Dick Cheney); former
Missouri GOP chair Ann Wagner; and to top it all off, former
high-ranking Steele aide Gentry Collins.
Yes, I think we're going to
lose Michael Tom Steele, the gift that kept on giving.
of my favorite Steele gaffes was, "Afghanistan is a
war of Obama's choosing,"
but the best one has to be spending $1600 on a lesbian bondage club in
Turns out some Rethugs aren't gay or chasing little boys in the
wasn't even at the bondage club, but somehow he caught all the hell for
Blaming the Black guy - it's like an American tradition.
