As you’ve been hearing, RNC Chairman Michael Steele is in hot water for comments he made about President Obama and the war in Afghanistan. Kevin Williamson at the National Review has an idea for the RNC, “Dump Steele, Hire Palin.” He says, “This is a job for Sarah Palin. Palin would be a much better RNC chairman than presidential candidate or freelance kingmaker. She'd raise tons of money and help recruit good candidates. I.e., she'd excel at doing the things Steele should have been doing instead of appointing himself Republican pundit-at-large… Sure, she'd be polarizing, but so is Barack Obama, and these are polarized times. And it's one thing to have a polarizing party chairman, another to have a polarizing candidate.
The blogs are mixed when it comes to answering the question of what should be done with Chairman. There are calls for him to resign from conservative blogs like, RedState and HotAir, and observations of Steele’s growing irrelevance from the Huffington Post. Mediate jokes, “At this point, the monthly Michael Steele Resignation Rallies should be an official part of the RNC’s budget.” Michelle Leiby at the Daily Caller thinks it’s time for Steele to go, but thinks he’ll try to weather this latest gaffe. She writes, “He’s shot himself so many times in the foot that he’s barely got one leg to stand on at this point. Steele weathered the many calls for his resignation after The Daily Caller broke the Bondage-gate scandal revealing that the RNC reimbursed $2,000 of a staffer’s expenses at a lesbian bondage-themed nightclub. So it would not be surprising if he tried to ride this one out too.”
