There are not too many days here lately that I get home and don’t find an impassioned plea in my email inbox from the RNC Chairman Michael Steele asking for a donation to fight off one cause or another. “Could you send us $25, $50, $100, $500 or more to the RNC today!” If you send money to the Republican Party, do you ever wonder where the money goes?
I know…. about $2000.00 of it went to take the “Young Eagles” to a lesbian-themed nightclub in West Hollywood. According to their website, the Voyeur is a “A destination for provocative revelry that combines eroticism and nightlife exclusivity. An alluring ambience designed with elegance and comfort while maintaining underground vitality.” In other words S&M shows, topless dancing and dancers simulating lesbian sex. But it doesn’t stop there, the exessive spending includes fees for private jets, car services, plush hotels, and catering Meanwhile, the RNC Chairman was missing in action on a “book tour” on company time. All in all, under this Chairman the RNC has raised less money and manged to spend more.
I was never a big fan of Steele. Like the rest of the current Republican leadership, he lacks the fire in his belly to stand up and fight for the ideals that make this Party great. Instead, he’d rather make nice and capitulate to the legacy media while throwing other conservatives ‘under the bus’ on the weekend shows. During an interview responding to the Rush Limbaugh statement about hoping that the Obama socialist agenda fails, Steele had this to say “Let’s put it into context here. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, the whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it’s incendiary, yes, it’s ugly” It’s quite a shame, I had sincere hopes that the first black man to lead the RNC would be the one to resurrect the Party of Lincoln, the “Grand Ole Party”. Now how fitting would that be?
I don’t know about you, but if I gave money to the RNC, I’d be asking for it back… But then again, I stopped throwing money down that hole, a long time ago…
