In an interview this afternoon, a livid, top GOP operative put it more bluntly. "This is the height of stupidity and epitomizes the problem that is Michael Steele."

A separate GOP operative passed along a comment Steele issued late last year when President Obama agreed -- as Republicans were pressuring -- to send additional troops to Afghanistan.

I'm told that more high profile Republicans -- operatives and electeds -- will come forward shortly with condemnations, and even demands of resignation, later today. Stay tuned.

And don't miss this classic slideshow of Steele and the RNC interns.
