It’s D-Day for the RNC. Is there anyone who still thinks Michael Steele can survive and keep his job as RNC Chairman? If not Steele, then who wins?


  • East of Eden

    Nope. Course, hindsight is 20/20 and it is Friday nite and I just saw the news….buh-bye Mikey, buh-bye! :P

  • Troy La Mana

    I don’t care who wins as long as they take a strong position and demand cuts in spending, elimination of earmarks and a return to the Constitution.

    Priebus had the most votes in the first round, followed by Steele and then Cino.

    Story is here.

    • Gary Russell

      I guess Priebus was the true frontrunner all along.
      I’d like my serving of crow to be served by my new pal, Kev.

      • David Kaiser, Editor

        Would you like a side of Boru with that?

  • Brian H

    I have no idea. Too much inside baseball for me.

  • Gary Russell

    I get to agree AND disagree with Kaiser in the same post!
    I agree that it’ll be Cino.
    But I also think that she would be considered the favorite.
    Being endorsed by the Speaker of the House is a huge plus.
    Being a “wise, Latina women” makes it easier politically for the party to dump Steele, an African-American.

    • David Kaiser, Editor

      Agree and disagree? You flip-flopper!

      Next thing you are going to tell me is that you voted against the war before you voted for it. Wait… I think I am confusing you with John Kerry.

      If nothing else, this is just further proof of your schizophrenia!

      • Gary Russell

        Can’t say that I’ve ever been mistaken for John Kerry before…that’s just a little (lot) scary!

    • David Kaiser, Editor

      But seriously Gary, I did read in at least two or three different articles that Priebus is the favorite and has more endorsements than any other candidate, that’s the reason I tabbed him as the front-runner.

      But its really just semantics.

  • David Kaiser, Editor

    Steele is toast, so the real question is who replaces him?

    I know that Reince Priebus is the favorite, but with about a third of the voters undecided, I’m going against the fav.

    I pick Maria Cino. 2010 was in some ways the year of the woman in the GOP, with Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann taking up strong leadership roles. Cino will continue that trend in 2011.
