Michael Steele has taken the GOP’s global-warming denial to a new height: “We are cooling. We are not warming. The warming you see out there, the supposed warming, and I use my finger quotation marks here, is part of the cooling process.”
That quote comes from Steele’s little-noticed appearance as a guest-host on Bill Bennett’s radio show the Friday before last, which was just dug up and posted by Sam Stein.
Steele also continued to make threats against pro-stimulus Republicans, as well. “Those first principles, with respect to how we as Republicans, as conservatives view the economy, view wealth creation, have to be adhered to, they have to be supported,” he said. “And those who don’t put their reelection in harms way.”
This really does show how Steele is the gift that keeps on giving: Even when he’s stopped doing media appearances, we get previous ones like this or the GQ interview popping up in the interim.
