La Crosse – Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele appealed to the political middle Friday to join his party but added that the party itself wouldn’t moderate.
“All you moderates out there, y’all come. I mean, that’s the message,” Steele said at a news conference. “The message of this party is this is a big table for everyone to have a seat. I have a place setting with your name on the front.
“Understand that when you come into someone’s house, you’re not looking to change it. You come in because that’s the place you want to be.”
Shorter Michael Steele: We don’t care if you gag on red meat. You’re a guest here, and that’s what we’re serving. Just sit down, shut up, and be grateful we left you a chair.
There’s something really wrong with this man’s understanding of parties and big tables.
