You Should Buy Chairman Mike’s Lil 12-step Book!

Apparently, no one inside the GOP knew that Chairman Michael Steele was writing a book.  They sure did not appreciate him publicly deriding his party’s chances of reclaiming a chamber of Congress this fall.

Chairman Mike, “Fire me.  But until then, shut up.”

Of course, the folks who are in charge of hiring/firing Chairman Mike are soon to be taken on vacation to Hawaii, on the RNC dime, courtesy of Chairman Mike.  Mind you, these folks have tremendous influence and are very important to fundraising and mobilizing the grassroots to get candidates elected, but they have no actual political power.  These are EXACTLY the type of self-important people that will wilt under the fancy wine and dine.

Better yet, Chairman Mike has got the street-cred to back up his mouth.  The GOP won more than it lost in special elections last year and raised $84 million in an off-year.  Of course, Chairman Mike blew $90 million on silly local projects that reinforced his support amongst the GOP base while flipping the bird at the Beltway GOP.  Chairman Mike spent so much money that the RNC changed their spending rules and took away Chairman Mike’s RNC credit card.

So, going into a midterm where the GOP has their best shot since 1994 and after an amazing off-year fundraising spree, the RNC has a whopping $8 million in the bank.

Chairman Mike is a walking Guinness commercial, “BRILLIANT!”

All the while, on top of his $224,000 RNC salary, the GOP found out this week that Chairman Mike has been charging $20k a pop for speaking appearances and a PR firm independent of the RNC was setting them up for him.

If they were playing Halo, Chairman Mike would be screaming, “OWNED!” over a headset while his avatar squatted on the head of the GOP’s avatar’s corpse.

Chairman Mike’s manifesto must be revenge for Chip Saltsman’s Christmas card the year before last.  A man of Chairman Mike’s chutzpah deserves reward:  buy his book.  And, Chairman Mike, take ‘em all the way to the bank!
