    Read more on Michael Steele's hilarious statements to the RNC.

    He talks about his views on gun control, drugs, climate change, gay marriage and more. On gun control, he said, "Guns have no place in American society, except for white people who want to shoot animals from airplanes in Alaska. No brothers ever been shot in Alaska from an airplane, so I am cool with that.”

    To the investigators of this ABOMINATION (oil spill).BRIEFING ON THE GOLF OIL DISASTER.
    If you were less interested in STATS

    If you were less interested MONEY.........
    You would come to realize that NOT only did you turf an EXCELLENT CEO who has been running the firm for 28 years and from what I know has done a great job. But you have allowed an AMERICAN CEO, who will sell his soul for a buck
    and already has been bought. I think the going rate was a COOL MILLION to further allow such atrocities to continue to
    happen.......... Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the OBOM IN ATION!
