Quote of the day

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter isn't a big fan of RNC Chair Michael Steele.

Considering that Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has hinted that he might find some sort of monetary punishment for people like Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., who don't toe the party line, you'd expect Specter to be at least somewhat upset at Steele. But on a local radio show Turesday morning, Specter was more than just upset -- he was brutal.

After a question about the RNC chair and his brief squabble with Rush Limbaugh, the senator, from out of nowhere, had this to say:


And National Chairman Steele, well he’s said so many contradictory things I wouldn’t pay a whole lot of attention to him.

Actually, that about sums up Steele's troubled tenure at the RNC to this point.

(Hat-tip to Think Progress.)
