Steele cries ‘Uncle’. Still more drama to come from what we hear. Apparently his expenses and contracting are in his vernacular, ‘off the hook.’ PDFs are circulating around town. We suspect the dynamic is assuming its own internal logic and momentum leading to a car wreck.
We hope there is a protracted, messy food fight. With Rush opining, slapping wet-behind-the-ear Cantors et al. One huge implosion of intolerant, vitriolic ignorance. And thereby we may even discover the secrets of Cold Fusion. As Jay Cost over at RealClearPolitics writes:
Is this the end of Steele’s trouble? My gut tells me no. Frankly, I think that if the RNC is this worried about Steele – they should just get rid of him. The party’s position in government is now extremely tenuous. The 2010 midterm is of critical importance to the GOP, and the RNC is the chief source of party funds. There is little margin for error. Can the party afford a hamstrung chairman whom members have little confidence in? One can’t help but wonder if these half-measures will make things worse rather than better.
