Michael Steele’s the show

This is incredible.

Absolutely incredible.

Who, do you reckon, said this, and about whom?

Well, if he’s such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that’s the one thing you don’t do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan?

That was Michael Steele, who is a member of the Bangles  Chairman of the Republican National Committee,  talking about Barack Obama.

Because, of course, it was Obama who invaded Afghanistan in 2001.

This isn’t some good ol’ tea-party boy saying this. This is the leader of the Republicans, for heaven’s sake.

I have grown to accept that political discourse in America doesn’t really have much of a relation to reality. But how can someone think they can make these remarks and get away with it?

It looks like Steele might not – the Republicans are getting increasingly tired of his leadership. It’s nice they’ve given themselves something to distract themselves from campaigning for the midterm elections isn’t it?
