The nutters are getting their panties in a wad:
The Republican National Coalition for Life and the Rev. Donald Wildmon’s American Family Association both have came out against Mr. Steele because he and former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman were co-chairmen of the centrist Republican Leadership Council and because of his unclear comments about abortion on “Meet the Press.”
A separate e-mail being sent to RNC members notes that the Log Cabin Republicans, a group that advocates for same-sex marriage and other homosexual issues, has embraced Mr. Steele’s candidacy.
He’s black, sympathetic to gays, pro-life, but not not rabidly so – exactly what the Republican Party needs, right? Well, I hope they don’t choose him. I hope they choose the most fucking right-wing lunatic they can find so that the rot that has become the Republican Party can fester in the wilderness for a couple decades or so. (via)
