Item: GOP bean counters are ranting that Big Mike ( Chairman Steele) is spending too much on
cut flowers. Well, cut fresh flowers may be the only thing fresh at the GOP. The man is working with and around stale ideas. No one should gripe, if he wants a little freshness that only flowers provide. The complaint-mongers are saying that Mike is spending twice or triple as much as his predecessors on flowers, limos, catering, and private planes. Please, the man needs to travel on a private plane. Who wants to be seen sitting next to the Chairman of the GOP? He is not that well liked by the far-right wingers. The wing nuts at the Tea Party thinks that he is an illiberal plant. Regular people definitely are no fans of his. Some GOP wags have the nerve of criticizing Mike for moving the RNC's annual winter meeting from D.C. to Hawaii. Please, he was looking out for the people of D.C. Nobody needed that hot air pollution. Yes, it was cold DC too! (And it is cold in DC!) One of the biggest things that the bad mouthers say about Mike is that he hires private consultants that are paid very high retainers. Well, so what? You have to pay people to come up with some of the jokes -- policy statements -- that come out of his mouth. Of course, some of those jokes come naturally with Mike. So the GOP saves there.
