Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, whose party just lost both chambers of Congress, will leave his position in January, and the post as party chief has been offered to Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele.It’s a big tent, bitchez.
…Mr. Steele is one of the most successful and respected black Republicans in the country.
Meanwhile, speaking of out-of-work Republicans, can I get a few crocodile tears from the Shakers on behalf of all the poor sods who are soon-to-be jobless after getting thumped by the Dems?
The hundreds of Republican staffers — not to mention more than a few Members — who will lose their jobs in the next few weeks are going to face a hostile marketplace on K Street as unemployed Republicans flood the market.Aww. Sniff, sniff.
Luckily, Blogenfreude has a good suggestion for them: “Even though Rummy is gone, there's plenty more fighting to do. Sign up here—sure, Iraq's not Capitol Hill, but it's a real chance for you young Republicans to make your mark! Sign up today!”
