On his Connecticut tour, Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele has been caught making two dumb remarks.
The second and admittedly more important one — which has Republicans and Democrats alike calling for his resignation — was “Keep in mind … [Afghanistan] was a war of Obama’s choosing. This is not something the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.”
The first was what he said about Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon:
“It just amazes me how, you know, if you put that kind of scrutiny to the people who are part of this administration, who are part of informing and advising the president of the United States, some of whom themselves are running for office this year, then I’m willing to have that conversation [about McMahon’s controversial background as CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment]. But don’t take me down that rabbit hole about this candidate who, as far as I know and everything I’ve seen, had nothing to do, the way you posited this question, with those decisions at that time and say that as national chairman I am somehow now going to be responsible for decisions made by the WWE?”
