Born at the Crest of the Empire

It's not just Michael Steele (although the Repubs do love the non-white scapegoat...)

It's gotta be said that alot of this comes from owning all the levers of power, but still, the "party of business" and deregulation, can't be happy with this fact.
With eight months to go before congressional elections, House and Senate Democratic candidates exceed in virtually every important campaign fundraising category.

You can blame Michael Steele if you want, but let's face it. It's much bigger than Steele.

The top Republican figures are wingnuts, and the smart/business/old money are less likely to give to the wingnuts. The rank and file may produce visible fundraising bubbles around profile figures ("You lie!"), but the serious big money folks aren't donating to fundraisers led by Sarah Palin.


  • Remember when Repubs thought Steele would be their Great Back Hope? Bring all the "colored" folks over to the GOP with his cool street cred? He's not the downfall of the GOP. He's just the fool they put in charge in a cynical bid to manipulate voters.

  • I remember that from when they picked him.

    The other thing that's kinda funny in the choice is that he had next to no party experience and had lost one election for Maryland Lt. Governor.

    His claim to fame was that he did better than expected.

    How do you pick that guy to lead your party?
