Mind Like a Steele Trap

Former RNC chair Michael Steele nine years ago:
Steele to Rush: I'm sorry

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says he has reached out to Rush Limbaugh to tell him he meant no offense when he referred to the popular conservative radio host as an “entertainer” whose show can be “incendiary.”

“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”...

‘I don’t know what the hell happened’: Michael Steele on the GOP under Trump

By Jonathan Capehart*

Given the state of American politics and the Republican Party, I had one question for Michael Steele: Why shouldn’t we blame him for the current condition of the country? After all, he was the chairman of the Republican National Committee who helped the tea party revolution take over the House in 2010.

“That’s right, baby, I built that bad boy out of steel,” Steele told me in the latest episode of “Cape Up.” “Now, having done that, I can’t help it if they went inside and started tearing up the floorboards and knocking out the windows, and crapping all over the house.”...
Mr. Steele's second career as a David Brooks imitator on various teevee, radio and print media outlets is working out very well for him.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

*In the interest of full disclosure, you should know that Mr. Capehart blocked me on Twitter a few years ago for pointing out to him (pointedly) that Both Siderism is bullshit.
