RNC Race: Anuzis ends his run

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Michigan GOP chairman Saul Anuzis has ended his bid to head the national party. He did not endorse either of the remaining candidates.

"It's been a great honor," he said. "I have enjoyed every minute."

"With that I want to withdraw my name. We have two great people running and I want to wish them the best of luck."

    It must be tough to withdraw yourself from a contest that you have no hope of winning.Kind of like that old adage"the horse I bet on to come
    second in the third race came first....in the fourth".

    I wonder why chairman Anuzis did not endorse his comrades. Perhaps he could not bring himself to actually partake in a vote that would allow a minority "particularly a 'black man' to become head of the RNC.

    Michael Steele, you will soon learn a lesson that I was taught when I was 18 years old. "Never think you are ACCEPTED by the Republican Party . . . you are TOLERATED. Trust me you will remember these words.

    The plot began taking shape when Duncan dropped out. They had already decided in the back room that the voting not going to end until they had picked either Blackwell or Steele; if it took all night.. Their plan was to keep voting, and wear the white candidates down, until they got tired and frustrated and bowed out. Funny.
