« Michael Steele’s Epic Fail | Main | Nation Sheds Nearly 700,000 Jobs in February; Unemployment Rate Expected to Rise to 7.9%; But Forecast by Challenger, Gray Suggests Worst of Downsizing is Over »

Not to Beat a Dead Horse Here, BUT....

....as long as I've still got the Louisville Slugger in my hand, I'll go ahead.

Thanks to Our Crack AoSHQ Research Department, I saw a snippet of the transcript to Michael Steele's appearance on Mike Gallagher's radio show last week. Care to read the source material and guess what jumped out at me?

STEELE: I mean, like Sarah Palin said, you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this what Teleprompter Jesus said about Palin's "Hockey Mom/Pit Bull" joke from her convention speech? And Michael Steele attributes it to Sarah Palin?

What's next? Is Steele going to go on Letterman and charm the audience with his spot-on recital of all Clark Griswold's best lines from "Caddyshack"? Is he going to debate Ken Burns on "Frontline" about the Battle of the Gallipoli and it's impact on the War Between the States?

Jumpin Jesus on a pogo stick. You're the freakin' RNC chairman, and you manage to get your party's most recent VP candidate mixed up with the Other Party's Presidential Candidate?

Stupid? I can deal with stupid. Hell, I'm a Republican: I've sort of come to expect it.

Cluelessness? Not so much. Sheriff Joe Biden is even snickering at the maroon we picked to lead our party.

To quote every dive bar doorman I ever met at 2am during my college years: "He's gotta go."

(Hat tips to "you know where" and Spurwing Plover, but mostly Spurwing Plover.)
