Oh What a Difference a Day Makes (or a couple).
Simple question. I really want to know. What in the world is happening with the Republican party? Check these quotes from Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele from over the weekend.
2/28/09 “Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh — his whole thing is entertainment. He has this incendiary — yes, it’s ugly.”
3/2/09 “My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh. I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”
Sounds like someone woke up with a horse head in his bed. 🙂
To me this seems fairly simple what’s happening here. The Republican Party has a new face and it’s red faced, bellicose and divisive. Still, it’s sad to see the Republican party continue to get more and more internal and inward and exclusive until it becomes irrelevant as a political voice in this country.
