Steele Humor

by Deacon Blues

Michael Steele's Republican National Committee - where strippers, phone sex, and Tea Party rage come together:

The Republican National Committee inadvertently distributed fundraising mail earlier this month with a return number that leads to a phone-sex line offering to connect callers with "hot horny girls ... students, housewives, and working girls from all over the country."
"We love nasty talk as much as you do," a woman's voice says on the sex-line's audio recording.

Gotta love Steele's "off the hook" attempts to build the party.

The mail piece was produced by Burch Munford Direct, a direct-mail firm frequently used by the RNC, the committee's communications director, Doug Heye, said.
The firm "will not be used for the foreseeable future," he said.

For the forseeable future? You mean you'd use them again just for giggles?

The RNC is not disclosing how many of these mailers were sent to potential donors.
The 800 number directs callers to a second 800 number, which is the sex line offering to connect callers with women who will do "anything you want" for $2.99 per minute.

Kinda like John "Kneepads" Boehner's approach to the bankers.

The latest RNC blunder came one day after a prominent social conservative leader told his organization's supporters not to give money to the RNC in the wake of news reports that the RNC paid almost $2,000 to cover the cost of a donor event at a risqué Los Angeles nightclub.
"I've hinted at this before, but now I am saying it -- don't give money to the RNC," Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, wrote in his "Washington Update" e-mail. "If you want to put money into the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who you know reflect your values."

And just what are those values, Tony?
