The dog isn’t an appetizer, Michael

Why do people hold political fundraisers? I’ll tell you why: it’s not for the money, it’s for the delicious hors d’ouvres! And at a recent fundraiser Republican National Party Chairman Michael Steele brought out some delicious “What did he just say??” tartar sauce for his conservative crabcakes.

At a July 4th weekend fundraiser, Steele said that the conflict in Afghanistan was “a war of Obama’s choosing” and that “”This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.” Steele went on to say “9/11? What’s that?” and “George Bush? Never heard of him” because apparently the official party line of the R.N.C is that America was like, taking a nap or something between Clinton and Obama.

Now all kinds of Republicans are calling for Steele to step down for not towing America’s war happy line. Steele however seems to be a victim of his own creation: by running a party whose political platform has devolved into senselessly saying “The country is fucked because Barack Obama is/isn’t doing _____”, he sort of set himself up to fail. I’m guessing that the spring rolls, chicken satays and mini quiches just got to his head and he forgot about why the Afghan War was being fought in the first place.

It is thus my sad duty to declare, for his inability to perform crazy Republican indignation successfully, he is to be stripped of his ceremonial mustache and forehead polisher and flogged with a U.S. History Textbook until he is fit to re-enter the G.O.P.
