Most important Most useless news of the day: Former RNC chair and current MSNBC contributor Michael Steele shaved his ‘stache after three decades. And, like, nobody noticed. This is the saddest de-‘staching since Alex Trebek cut his nostril mane off. (photo via Yahoo News reporter Chris Moody)

I wanted a brokered convention. That was one of my goals.
Michael Steele • Discussing his role in the length of the current GOP primary season, and his thought process for scheduling primary contests during his time as chairman of the Republican National Committee. Steele has come under fire recently for creating a primary season that, by many accounts, appears to be benefiting President Obama far more than the Republican Party. Steele stuck by his decision-making, arguing that the longer primary season could re-engage Republican voters in states that have been largely ignored in previous contests.   source (viafollow)

I know exactly how Caesar felt. It is what it is.
Former RNC chairman Michael Steele • Likening himself to Julius Caesar in light of Reince Priebus, who he called a “friend,” beating him in his bid for a second term. Steele, who appointed Priebus as RNC general counsel, believes he knew he was going to mount the challenge yet hid it for months. source (viafollow)

Michael Steele unintentionally nails his legacy with the RNC

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Guess which book Michael Steele thought this iconic quote was from? (Hint: Not from “A Tale of Two Cities.”) Anyway, even though he completely misattributed the quote (he said it was from his favorite book, “War and Peace”), let’s face it, that’s everything you need to know about his two years as RNC chair. Despite the immense level of success the Republican Party had in winning elections in 2009 and 2010, their current financial situation is pretty much the polar opposite of what one would expect from the party of fiscal responsibility. So, let’s take a moment to honor the RNC weirdo in his last stand, the one whose party succeeded despite his own personal failures. And the fact that he attributed this quote to the wrong book explains everything about why he won’t return. (Edit: He’s currently behind in the vote, which is taking place now … he’s not doing bad but losing support.) source

Today’s big vote: So, who’s going to be the next RNC chair?: So, much of the betting money is leaning towards this Reince Priebus guy (who we’re totally going to call Prince Riebus by accident) becoming the RNC chair. Sayonara, Michael Steele. source Follow ShortFormBlog

Why RNC chairman Michael Steele has no chance of being reelected

  • $20M the amount of debt the RNC will carry into this year – which is massive and will hurt Steele
  • $10M the amount of debt the fiscally-minded RNC will likely carry into the 2012 presidential year
  • $2M the largest amount of debt the RNC has had in a presidential year (in 2000) – until now source

The long and short of it is I have a hard time finding any major donor who would trust [Michael Steele] to straighten out the RNC and run a principled and ethical fundraising operation…My own slogan is now, Anybody But Steele.
Former RNC Finance Chair Al Hoffman • On Michael “Drill, Baby, Drill” Steele’s announcement that he will run for a second term as RNC chair. Lots of big-money GOP donors have pledged stop giving to the RNC if Steele wins his reelection bid. Some worry that, should Steele win, the RNC might not even be able to raise enough money to fund the 2012 GOP Convention in Florida. source (viafollow)

Michael Steele: Will Mr. Delusional run for RNC Chair again?
That look in Michael Steele’s eyes? Some might call it “deer in headlights.” We call it “ignorance to the gravity of his situation.” Anyway, the man of Steele, who has led the RNC through its most embarrassing period in ages, will be announcing his future plans today. Our money is on him being so oblivious to his unpopularity among Republicans (especially for his fiscal skills, which are pretty much the key part of running the RNC) that he’ll run again. And honestly, we hope he does. We love the sound of a good trainwreck. source
