GOP chair Steele agrees with Rush Limbaugh, it’s a good thing Specter left the party and became a Dem




Well, then maybe we can make a good thing even better. Olympia, you’re always welcome, glyka-mou.

So, come on, all you guys over at the DNC, you’re paying Steele off, right? I mean, invoking Limbaugh and agreeing with him that moderate Republicans are “dead weight” that are better off being run out of the party – I mean, seriously. It’s difficult to overplay how significantly stupid of a move this is for party chair Michael Steele, and the GOP overall. Now, granted, there aren’t too many moderates left in the GOP, so maybe Steele and Limbaugh think there’s no point in worrying about moderates leaving when they’ve already left. But still. I would think the Republicans aspire to more than a 20% share of the electorate.

So then Steele is saying that he agrees that the Democrats gaining another seat in the Senate, their 60th in fact, is a good thing, and what’s more, he agrees that John McCain should leave the party too? That’s what Rush said. That’s what Michael Steele agreed with, in his sycophantic effort to suck up to the remaining extremists in the GOP. Let me remind you of what Rush said exactly:

“A lot of people say, ‘Well, Specter, take [Sen. John] McCain with you. And his daughter [Meghan]. Take McCain and his daughter with you if you’re gonna…” he told listeners, dissolving in laughter.

“…..It’s ultimately good. You’re weeding out people who aren’t really Republicans,” he said.

I’m sorry, but this is all just too delicious. To think a year ago we had the chimp as president, global warming denialism as the state religion, and now the Republicans are in ruins, and going south fast. Absolutely delicious.
