Well, the Steeleweek got off to to a shaky start, a kinda good news/bad news deal. So on the one hand we have the wonderful news of Mikey actually hiring somebody! To be his web thingy visionary video web internet guy:
"I am excited to be adding Todd, a recognized thought-leader in digital media, to my team at the RNC," Steele said. "Todd brings the kind of outside of the beltway, real-world experience to Washington D.C. and to our party that we need as we reclaim the lead in the use of digital media to communicate with America."
A thought-leader in digital media! My, sounds fancy! But also reverent:
He currently lives in Washington State, where he works at his most important roles: Christian, husband and father.
Smootchy-smooch with love from Michael Steele, Christians!
On the other hand, though, Michael did a whoopsie and took contributions from Lucifer himself. And by "Lucifer" I mean, of course, the National Education Association, and somebody is miffed and needs a hug:
"I believe in raising money from people who share your vision of leadership," said Lonegan whose own campaign is closing in on the $2 Million fundraising mark including matching funds. "But I do not believe in asking for or accepting money from people or organizations whose mission differs from yours,” he added. "The National Education Association agenda is the exact opposite of the Republican Party's agenda, or at least what our agenda should be."
"What's next? Accepting money from the National Abortion Rights Action League, Handgun Control, Gay Marriage PACs and George Soros?" Lonegan wondered.
OH NO the big tent has a funny smell! Ew! Michael, help!
