Michael Steele, Maryland's lieutenant governor and a failed GOP Senate hopeful, has been asked to take the helm of the Republican National Committee, the Washington Times reports
Steele's Senate campaign, you may recall, has twice
bamboozled homeless people to campaign for him. The first
time the "volunteers" never got paid; the second
time they were told to hand out literature so misleading, the men were verbally assaulted
by the voters they interacted with.
In that literature and elsewhere
, Steele has repeatedly portrayed himself as a Democrat. Not by adopting Democratic stances -- but by literally labeling himself "Democrat" in the material. That's a curious habit for a guy who's set to run the Republican party, don't you think?
