A High Living Steele

A High Living Steele

GOP donors are in a wussy fit over Repub National Committee Chairman Michael Steele's high spending, accusing him of spending like an imperial  emperor.


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.
