MICHAEL STEELE....I see that the candidate I was rooting for to head up the GOP has won:
It's official. The new face of the National Republican Party is Michael Steele, a 50-year-old African American, the first in the history of Abraham Lincoln's party.
Ah, but he's not just 50 years old. Steele was born on October 19, 1958, the exact same day as me. That's why I was rooting for him.
But it's not all sunshine on the Michael Steele front. Because of our shared birthday I once pinged him to be my friend on Facebook. He never responded. Very sad. I guess he didn't want to reach out.
