“Tea Bagger Republicans” didn’t care just as long as they can will many seats in 2010. Now that they have no use for Michael Steele who I think did help get Nancy P fired from being the House Speaker, they have no use for him and will be voting him out of office next TODAY! Go figure.
Steele acted the fool going after Pelosi, how does it feel to be done in by your OWN party!?
GO SHORTBUS GO! Man, I hope this guy is as much of an imbecile ideologue as Mushmouth. Another 2 years of bumbling hilarity? Sign me up.
(Inside the minds of the RNC voters...)
"Do we still need a Black guy? What if the Black guy who runs Godfather Pizza runs for President as a Republican; would that mean too many Black guys in the GOP? How black a Black guy do we need?"
I hope Steele get knocked out. He is a terrible leader.
This a race to the bottom if I've ever seen one. Who in their right mind would want to lead this band of slack-jawed, drooling idiots anyhow?
One would think Steele would pull out of the voting before he became number 5 on the list, but guess not!
So it took Steele 4 rounds of continuing decrease in ballot counts to get the message? The man am dumber than he acts!
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times - War and Peace: Michael Steele's adaptation of Tale of Two Cities.
Hey, Hip Hop, you are but a few votes away towards your own personal worst of times. Enjoy. Wonder if Palin will hire him on as an advisor?
"Wonder if Palin will hire him on as an advisor?"
I doubt it. She might let him carry her luggage though.

Tim Kaine would but he already leads a band of slack-jawed, drooling idiots.
Two questions to the candiates – do yoiu think what's her face can be president – all answered yes . . . . do you own a gun, if I remember correctly steele said no but everyone else said yes but prius(sp?) has an arsenal.
You want to put a bet on who is going to win this dumb election?
