Steele, Emasculated

I'm going to add my voice to those calling for Steele to step aside.

He's a bad organizer and has not been a good communicator so far. If one shirks on one's main duty -- organizing, hiring staff, making money -- to focus on a secondary one, one had better do a bang-up job at it.

Steele didn't.

Worse yet he is now badly damaged and emasculated by his scrape with Rush Limbaugh. He will be parodized, as he is in the clip below, of serving Rush Limbaugh rather the party, the movement, or, most importantly, the country.

This is why I dearly wished that Rush Limbaugh and his supporters would just let this go and not insist on an apology. Because the apology, on top of all of other Steele's negatives, makes him entirely ineffectual.

The skit is not particularly funny but it demonstrates the perception -- or the reality -- that anything Steele says has to be cleared first through EIB.

We're going to have yet another round of this, and another round of bad press and "Republicans in Disarray" stories, when Steele steps down. Not to mention all the sniping that "the country gave Barack Obama four years, but the racist Republican Party only gave Steele four weeks."


Some disputes are crucial and can and must be fought for.

Some disputes are small and should be papered-over and diplomatically defused.
