I'm Not Making This Up. Really.

In an interview last night on ABC radio with Curtis Sliwa, RNC Chairman Michael Steele was even more astonishingly himself than usual.

On Bobby Jindal: "Some slum love out to my buddy...Gov. Bobby Jindal is doing a friggin' awesome job in his state. He's really turned around on some core principles – like hey, government ought not be corrupt. The good stuff..."

On the stimulus package: "There's a lot of bling bling – the bling bling's got bling bling in this package. That's how bad it is."

On the RNC's hip-hop strategy: "This party has got to take its head out of its you-know-what and recognize that America doesn't look like America in 1952. That America now is something very different, very beautiful – that it has a lot of strips and strains to it. But, it's real and we've got to get in the real."
