Two quick comments on Michael Steele’s latest tantrum.
1. To be fair to Steele: I couldn’t believe that he would let the phrase “chartered course in life” to slip past his lips. As illuminating into his character as it would be to learn that Steele thinks of his life as rented, he did in fact say “charted.” ThinkProgress messed up the transcription.
2. At this point he should understand that he needs to be directing the conversation toward the RNC’s goals and away from himself, i.e. leading. Yet he’s complaining and trying to portray himself as a martyr. It shouldn’t be hard to understand that the Republicans aren’t interested in their chairman demonstrating that he’s misunderstood or fielding personal complaints. They just want money.
