Michael Steele's Scarlet RRepublican Senate hopeful Michael Steele let loose a tirade against Bush and the Republicans.
Some highlights:All that before his identity was revealed, that is.
Now that he's been unmasked, he says he's only kidding and calls Bush his "homeboy".
If he's only kidding, why didn't he go on record from the beginning?
This is called rowing your boat in two rivers at the same time. He wants to appear independently defiant in his blue state, yet too wimpy to own up to what he said.
Only an amateur like Steele would think such a hypocritical attempt at having it both ways could possibly work.
The Carpetbagger Report says no wonder he's losing.
Tom Schaller at Tapped predicted correctly that Steele will portray himself the victim, this time pointing the finger at "the leak-happy national media".
The Moderate Voice says it's always fun to watch a candidate self-destruct.
And finally, Steve Gillard shows no mercy.
