GOP catfight: Michael Steele calls Reince Priebus 'numb nuts'
The Washington Examiner's Washington Secrets ^ | March 19, 2013 | Paul Bedard

The catfight between former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele and his replacement, Reince Priebus, has reached screech level, with Steele belittling the party's new focus on minorities as old news.

Appearing on the "Andrea Tantaros Show," a nationally syndicated radio show, Steele called the GOP establishment that on Monday unveiled a $10 million minority outreach effort a bunch of "numb nuts" for ignoring the plan he instituted four years ago.

Steele also sounded ready to beat up Priebus. Asked by Tantaros who would win in a cage fight, Steele said, "Oh, no question, I would clean his clock." How? "Just one knock on the head. It's done."

The Steele-Priebus battle is, in a way, a repeat of their 2011 duel for the RNC chairmanship......

I have no use for either one of them. Why not make Charlie Crist, Christopher R. Barron or David Frum RNC chairman and be done with it?

Bottom line is the GOP had success in 2010 on Steele’s watch, while Priebus has been an absolute disaster. Frankly, why he still has the job, I don’t know.

I thought Priebus sounded like he was auditioning for a job at MSDNC.

We won in spite of Steele, not because of him. He was a pimp for the liberal party establishment. Priebus’s success was in 2010 as chair of the WI GOP, where he did do a good job. He was not able to parlay that success into 2012, given that the party establishment was fine to run a ringer against Zero. He should not have been reelected, though.

Republican figures always compare the government to private business, saying that if Obama was a Wall Street tycoon, he’d be in prison. We should apply that standard to ourselves. When someone cannot get the job done, you fire them. Is Priebus a conservative? Is he a RINO? It makes no difference. He’s a loser. He sucked at his job, and its time to can his ass.

I would have guess such. Besides both parties owned by the some elites, this ensures that no competition is needed because again the elites will select the prez. Before the Klintoons I have stated that each & every election, until a collapse, we will get worse leaders on a continuing basis. Now the Supreme Court ain't worth a bucket of warm spit.

Heh. Michael Steele, for one, is always more sensible when he's out of office than when he's in.

I have been, ONCE, on the receiving end of someone calling me
“numbnuts”, and I considered it the WORST kind of man-to-man
insult imaginable. Michael Steele, IMHO, was far worse than anything I’ve seen or heard about from Reince Priebus.
Priebus, though, has started to get lots of flak from disgruntled Conservatives,so maybe he’s proved he’s just as feckless as Steele. We need somebody stronger than both of them. At least Priebus hasn’t proposed integrating rap “artistry” into the GOP outreach.The only difference between them may be that “leadership” is all that much more urgent now.

The members of your Republican Party in your state, elect, at their state convention, two representatives, one woman, one man, to be on the National Committee. Those folks, along with each state chairman, elect the national chairman.

Who did your two representatives vote for? Practicaly no one knows who their representataives are, much less how they voted.

Do people really have that in mind when they say it?

I get that it's a bad insult, but I'd always thought of it as just another way of saying "stupid" or "jerk" or "lame," not as having a specific sexual meaning.
