At this moment, the Republican Party needs more than ever to present a sober, serious and ethical face to the public. Voyeur was the last straw. It would be an unselfish gesture for Steele to step aside.
How to put this politely? Michael Steele is a man of considerable talent — it’s just that he conspicuously lacks those required for his present position. He’s energetic, personable and articulate. But those are not the qualities most required of a party chairman. The job demands an administrator, a behind-the-scenes schmoozer and a tactician. Showboating is a hindrance. It’s a job that requires the talents of a stage manager, whereas Steele likes to be the star.
At a time when the Republican Party is the indispensable vehicle for thwarting the disastrous policies of the Obamaites, Steele is a costly distraction in more ways than one…
Charen lays it on a bit thick – but it is consistent with the hyper-inflated hyperbole of the right, that the continued existence of a (badly acting) black man would threatens the entire world’s destruction!
Damn – Where are the Martians when you need them?
