You really have to laugh at these Republican establishment types. These good old boy characters couldnt be more pathetic if they tried.
As you know, Michael Steele has once again opened mouth and inserted foot. Full disclosure, I like Michael Steele. I dont have bad feelings for the guy. But hes proven that being the Chairman of the RNC isnt the best use of his talents. This latest flap is way overblown, however. Hes said worse.
Anyhow, this isnt about bashing Michael Steele. Nope, this is all about exposing the pathetic milquetoast moderates and their silly notions.
With all of the calls for Steele to step down, the establishment seems to think they have an idea: Replace Steele with Sarah Palin. No, Im serious here. Kevin D. Williams writing for National Review Online came up with this...

They just don’t get it! Frustrating.
No. Just a bunch of RINOs wanting to cage Sarah.
BTW Palin would be the perfect choice for leader of GOP. There should be no discussion.
They are nuts. That is a way to sideline her if I ever heard. What they need is a Haley Barbour type: low profile, highly effective. This party official is supposed to be focused on getting Republicans elected, not on taking positions on contentious issues.
“establishment seems to think they have an idea: Replace Steele with Sarah Palin. No, Im serious here”
Seriously? If Palin had said “57 states” her career would have been over.
You need to focus on the gaffes of your president.
The author does a good job of discussing it.
I think she’d be great too. Talk about whipping the troops into shape and energizing your base! That would do it!
Bad idea in my opinion.
She would have to step down from the chairman spot if she were to run for Prez- and the accusations of “Quitter!!” would be heard again.
Nope, I think she’s doing just dandy flying solo...she’s practically running things and directing agenda anyway from Facebook, LOL!
As POTUS? Agreed. As Chairperson of the RNC, no way. The RINOs want to put her in a box.
I’d rather see John Bolton
My guess is she wouldn’t be interested.
One thing is for sure, if SP were to replace Steele, at least I wouldn’t hang up with the RNC called me for money.
Oh, speaking of that, have you gotten your multiple calls from Mike Huckabee?
Stupid idea. Palin is good for going around the country and getting people excited about voting for a decent person. Palin should not be a candidate for anything, and should not be party chairman.
Get rid of that Obama lap dog Steele and put Rove in there.
I don’t blame the establishment for trying. With success, Palin and much of the Tea Party would be taken out of commission. The idea is nothing more than a cynical ploy by the Republican establishment to neuter its base.
There is no question that the Republican Party needs a genuine, base-friendly conservative at the helm to control the allocation of effort and resources toward getting conservative candidates on the ballot and elected.
Just not THAT conservative, thank you.
