Good going, Chris. Perhaps if you took your head out of your ass long enough from your New York City Manhattan (not even Brooklyn) locale to stop being so "fascinated" you might have followed the example of your Nation colleague John Nichols — ON GROUND ZERO IN WISCONSIN, WITH THE PEOPLE, AND WITH FIGHTING PROGRESSIVES — who referred to matters that might otherwise "fascinate" you as "interesting", "extremely interesting", "a very good question" (from Steele) — not once did Nichols use and abuse the most popular adjective-cliché of the Beltway Media/Idiot Punditocracy. Good guy John Nichols maintains his sense of proportion by hanging out with regular folks. You should try it, sometime, Chris. Yes, I shall STEEL myself against the fascinating onslaught when the usual suspects double down, I'm sure, just to be annoying.
Meanwhile, Ari's unfinished sentence was left out there like a dangling, hanging chad. But at least Chris had the presence of mind to get Steele to admit the Republican Party is out to completely destroy unions in this country. And where he was MIA, at least the expressions on the faces of Herbert, Ornstein, Mann, and Weingarten to Steele's BLOVIATIONS pretty much said it all.
