Steele: You gotta clean it out
Vincent David Jericho is pretty fed up with Roy Blunt. Apparently, Michael Steele might be too.
Jericho, the host of a conservative Missouri radio talk show, recently interviewed Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, and the two got to talking about the Republican Senate candidate Roy Blunt, who will likely face off with EMILY's List candidate and current secretary of state, Robin Carnahan.
Jericho: "His [Matt Blunt's] daddy [Roy] screwed around with a tobacco lobbyist ... then slips language into the homeland security bill favorable to the tobacco lobbyist. I mean here is a guy that has committed adultery multiple times. Yet he had a senior position, and still does, in the Republican Party. Guys like Papa Blunt make us sick to our stomach. ...
Steele: Look, now don't, don't - I mean, I agree with you. And when stuff gets in the crapper, you gotta clean it out.
Hold the phone - is the RNC chair really saying that his leading candidate for the Republican Senate seat in Missouri needs to be flushed down "the crapper"? Not exactly a ringing endorsement from the leader of your own party.
