Re: Steele on Chairmanship

Phil,

Just Shut Up. Unless you want to pay Steele to speak. Because of course he will put your money to better use in his own pocket than he could if he talked you into donating it to the party. The party doesn't need the money anyway, because it has a superstar as chairman who can make it popular just by virtue of his reflected glory. And, of course, his glory reflects more brightly if you pay him to speak. When he tells people to "get with the program," well, of course the best program is the one that has him as a featured, highly paid speaker. Because, you see, he is ready to lead, but th Republicans not only won't win back the House but aren't ready to lead if they do win it back. We know that is the case because the man of Steele told us so himself -- even without being paid to do so.

And when he said he wanted the gig, he didn't mean he wanted to do all the nuts and bolts things that an ordinary chairman does -- things such as fund-raising, and like saying things that actually make the party look good. No, he meant he wanted the TITLE of party chairman so he could boost his speaking fees. Because, you see, if he gets rich off of being chairman, he will be in better position to finance the race for president that he plans to make. He should be president, you see, because he is SO "all that." Because, after all, he is the very man to sell our principles to "hip-hop" audiences and to one-armed midgets. Because those are the new majoritarian interest groups, of course.

Mental midgets, of course, are also welcome -- especially as party chairman.
