Gingrich concedes RNC chair race

If you read the fifth paragraph, it appears Gingrich is giving up on the race for the GOP chairmanship. My prediction was wrong. It looks like it may be Michael Steele


  • Is this the Michael Steele who made up stories about people throwing Oreo cookies at him?

  • That's the one.

    And I hate to bring it back to race, but if there is x percent who care about race in this country, they are in the Republican party.

    Of course, those aren't the people in power, but imagine the racist mind, a black president, a black head of the Repub party....

    Also, do they think Michael Steele helps take African American votes away from the Dems?

  • I don't know much about Steele except that he fits the mould of blame-everyone-but-me Republicanism. Throw in a dash of just-make-shit-up for good measure.

    There is room for heathy, intelligent, reasoned debate from a conservative perspective. Conservative view of governance, that is. It's beyond me why the Repubs continue to go to the shallow end of the pool and rely on emotion and make-believe as the foundations of their world view.

  • HE's also fascinating to me because he lost. He ran for Maryland's Lt Governor, lost, and became a star.

    Lost in a run for Lt. Governor, but came out a star? How does that happen?

    Then, he goes out and gets posted as the head of GOPAC, the early elected official finishing school, so he's got contacts.

    He's definitely sharp, and plays the game well, I just don't understand how he got there in, what, two years?

  • Does the GOP reward the whiny, "I was a victim of the liberals!", losers as much as they do "winners?"

    In any regard, they seem to continue to drift from intellectual, reasoned conservatism. I expect we'll see a variation on the theme of boogey-man politics and dumbed down (made up) arguments from the GOP.

  • I gotta say, Steele didn't whine too much, other than to say, "we made a good run in a blue state" (Maryland.)
