Steele: No More Apologies

Sick of all those Republican apologies we’ve been receiving? Can’t stand the thought of seeing Dick Cheney on television one more time, saying how sorry he is for all of his mistakes? Good news: “The era of apologizing for Republican mistakes of the past is now officially over,” Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said today at an RNC assembly. “We have turned the corner on regret, recrimination, self-pity and self-doubt.” Steele also promised to “take the president head-on,” saying “the honeymoon is over.” He promised to take Obama on “with dignity,” criticizing the “classless and shabby way” that Democrats would attack Bush. Tomorrow, the RNC is expected to pass a measure rebranding the Democratic Party as the “Democrat Socialist Party.”
