Michael Steele sends me email. Always inviting me to a tea party or an armed insurrection or something or other. Quite the social butterfly.
Today he threw a real whopper at me, titled Scott Brown and You. In the (apparently obligatory since the "successful" McCain campaign) P.S. of the fundraising ask email, there was this tidbit:
P.S.: Jason, Scott Brown's victory in the special election for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts shows our Party can win anywhere in the country when we have a principled, conservative candidate backed by the RNC's network of grassroots supporters.Now if by principled you mean he ran away from the tea baggers and wingnuts as fast as he could and if by conservative you mean voted for universal health care and supports a woman's right to choose, then I guess you have a point, Mr. Steele. But if you invoke those words in the way most other do, I think you're full of shit.
Mr. Brown is more liberal than Dede Scozzafava ever dared to be, and your "grassroots network" cheered at her loss. This is getting confusing!
It, like your "movement," just doesn't make any sense.
Honestly, Mike, does anyone there at the RNC know what's really going on?
