Better Than Steele?
By Cassandra D
So the RNC has named its new leader and it isn't Michael Steele. As I wrote before, I didn't think he was a good choice.
The winner is...Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida. Name ring a bell? Wondering why? Oh yeah, maybe because of this:
"Martinez started slowly in the Senate where he was embarrassed by a one-page unsigned memo that originated in his office. Written by a Martinez aide and disavowed by Senate Republicans, the memo laid out the political benefits to getting involved in the fate of
Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman whose end-of-life battle became a rallying cry for conservatives.
"'This is an important moral issue and the pro-life base will be excited that the Senate is debating this important issue,' said the memo. Its author resigned."
