Mother Jones got some great reaction commentary from Ohio’s own Matt Naugle today about Michael Steele’s big win.

Needless to say, Matt is pissed.

He too was rooting for a big win by Ken Blackwell – but for obviously different reasons. I wholeheartedly believe that Ken Blackwell could single-handedly run the GOP into the ground. Matt thinks the exact opposite.

So when Matt says that “No candidate was more un-Blackwell than Michael Steele”, it is certainly NOT a compliment for the new RNC chairman.

Personally, I think the GOP may have just saved their asses with today’s vote. And, as I mentioned before, it has me worried for 2010.

Matt, however, isn’t so optimistic about the GOP’s chances in the next election cycle…

The Republican Party, with a John McCain candidacy, tried to win on a “big tent” platform and in the process lost its soul. Now, with the election of Steele, they have lost their mind.

I really hope Matt is right.

  • First, WTF is MJ doing talking to Naugle? Second, guess that answers who thinks he’s a “social media ninja”. 🙂

  • I second Eric’s WTF…

    I got worried the second Blackwell endorsed Steele (for which I don’t see Naugle suckling on J. Kenneth). Steele is a moderate whose record is much less right-leaning than many of his cohorts in the RNC. Dems need to take heed of this and begin campaigning now.

  • Did I call it or what? It WAS Naugle.

  • What, now we go and find our own “magic Negro”?

    This is a very, very sad day for America. The election of Steele proves that the Republican party will not go in the direction they need to for the sake of our country. They can expect to be in the minority for quite some time to come.

    Here is what a conservative talk show host from Iowa said about Steele

    Steve Deace is so right about him.

    He’s a RINO. On that we can be clear. This proves that the Republican Party’s move to the Left might be a permanent legacy of the Bush years.
