These comments from Rep. Darrell Issa stand as another example of why it is time for the RNC to begin thinking about the post-Steele era.
Regardless of any plausible validity as to the content of Chairman Steele’s comments on Afghanistan, he completely put his foot in his mouth for reasons described by Rep. Issa.
This is not to say that Sarah Palin wouldn’t suffer any embarrassing moments of her own. She likely would – because she is human. Humans have this uncanny ability to embarrass themselves.
The point is that Sarah Palin would be drawing so much attention and raising so much money that nobody would be breaking ranks and making public comments like the ones Rep. Issa makes in the video above.
