This rambling and incoherent interview with Michael Steele was almost Palinesque– the only thing missing was a couple “you betcha’s!”
On display are all the contradictions, the lies, the spin, the confusion, and the chaos that is the Republican party. The party, as a whole, is like a congenital liar who has told so many lies and so many untruths that anything that comes out of their mouths contradicts what they said a moment and will contradict what they are going to say next.
There’s a show on A&E called Crime 360, and basically every episode walks you through a case, from the investigation of the crime scene through the evidence analysis to the capture of a suspect to the interrogation. Sometimes the interrogations are pretty amazing- the suspect, when under pressure, will immediately start to directly contradict what he/she said three minutes earlier.
That is what I think I am seeing every time I see most of the major Republicans on television. The only difference between any of them is who can most shamelessly lie (Gingrich, Palin, etc.) and those who very publicly trip over their own toes (Steele, Pence).
