GOP Chairman Michael Steele: off to a bad start

Why? Because instead of starting out by taking off after Democrats, Steele is attacking...fellow Republicans and conservatives:

"Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, said in an interview with CNN that he, rather than Limbaugh, is "the de facto leader of the Republican Party."
And Steele described Limbaugh as a performer. "Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh's whole thing is entertainment," Steele said. "Yes, it is incendiary. Yes, it is ugly."

No, it isn't; you're flatly wrong, Mr. Steele. Have you ever actually listened to Mr. Limbaugh?
Those who criticize him the most are usually those who listen the least.
And in any case, the new chairman of the GOP shouldn't allow his first actions to be something that will alienate the Republican/conservative base.
