    Excerpt:
    GOP Chairman Michael Tom Steele thinks Republicans have "screwed up" for the most part since Reagan. And, he says Rethugs won't win back the House in fall elections and might not be ready to lead even if they do.
    That forecast of failure sparked a pushback Tuesday at the GOP and delight the Democrats. Winning back the House would be difficult for Republicans, who are in a 256-178 minority with one vacancy. Steele's book, "Why I Hate Being Black," offers his blueprint for the party's resurgence. Asked Monday by handjob Hannity if Republicans can regain the House, Steele said, "Not this year." He added: "I don't know yet, because I don't know all the candidates yet. We still have some vacancies that need to get filled, but then the question we need to ask ourselves is, if we do that, are we ready?" Steele said: "Our candidates have to be anchored in these principles ... because if they don't, they'll get to Washington, and they'll get drunk with power and throw the steps out the window."

    I watched this on 'Morning Joe' before I left for work today.

    I was waiting to see if a Neo-Con would bring this up.

    I knew better.

    LOL!!

    So is he just trying to sell his book ( that's the angle the Cons will take I'm betting) or did he just make what he thought was an honest statement in a moment of madness?

    It looks like even Steele had to let some truth slip out.

    I guess he ran out of lies and excuses, so he fell on the sword of truth.

    *shrugs*

    what will El Rushbo say after he recovers from his bout of Angina? - this could be the end for Steele.
