Michael Steele: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

My favorite junk bond, Michael Steele, is already paying dividends. In his first speech since taking over the RNC:, Steele offered up this gem during his praise of the House GOP’s attempt to stop the much needed economic stimulus :

“You and I know that in the history of mankind and womankind, government—federal, state or local—has never created one job… It’s destroyed a lot of them.”

OH.MY.God…excuse me while I weep tears of joy. I must have been the freaking Pope in a previous life to have been privledged with such great political fortune.

So the government has never created a job? Really? Ever? Hmmmm. What about

– the hundreds of thousands of people that work for the government including but not limited to teachers, firefighters, and police officers.

– politicial reporters, analysts, reporters and anchors paid to cover political news

– The thousands of researchers, analysists and policy writers hired by think tanks

-contractors who are hired by government

– the millions of jobs created by the New Deal

– millionaire political consultants

– and umm…your job as chairman of the RNC which was created as a direct byproduct of the existence of our democratic system

Thank you RNC, thank you so very much!
