Moonwalking Michael Steele
In response to CNN's D. L. Hughley's characterization of Rush Limbaugh as the de facto leader of the Republican Party, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele answered: "No he's not. I'm the de facto leader of the Republican Party. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, the whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it incendiary. Yes, it's ugly."
Then after Limbaugh pretty much dismissed Mr. Steele on his radio show, the chairman did what Republicans typically do after crossing the pill popping blowhard, he apologized: "My intent was not to after Rush - I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh. I was maybe a little bit inarticulate." Indeed.
