Republican David Frum's website, FrumForum.com, reports that the Republican National Committee has a new Chair: "Wisconsin State Chair Reince Priebus was elected the next Republican National Committee Chairman." The article charts the vote and a little bit of drama.
So, thist the party's first African-American Chair, Michael Steele is out. But we saw that coming.
Mike just wasn't getting results, and then there was that money problem and him playing the "race" card for his troubles. He had to go. And I for one will not miss his ridiculous exploits into HipHop.
Below is video of Priebus addressing his fellow GOP members, rallying the troops to beat President Barack Obama in 2012. He says Republicans must unite. He's right. The Tea Party's breathing down the GOPs neck so hard that the GOP seems inclined to carry the TP's coat.
But what's up with the huge gavels? Preibus has one in the video. Are Republican men trying to tell us something about compensation issues?
O.K. I'll quit playing. I suspect the gavel was a joke following John Boehner's big gavel as Speaker of the House.
