The former RNC chair stopped by MSNBC today to castigate Republicans who didn’t make an appearance at President Obama’s coron- er, inauguration:

“Shame on those Republicans who had to ‘leave town’ and were not here to be part of this day.” Michael Steele, former GOP Chairman

Oof! Michael Steele calls #GOP intransigence/obstructionism a “best laid plan…more of mice than men”

The same liberals who are embracing Chris Christie’s anti-GOP crusade gleefully embraced Steele’s stompy-footedness:

Good for him. RT @sheshego: #inaug13 Michael Steele: Shame on Republicans who “had to leave town” and didn’t join us today.

— Sandra F. Woodward (@KySandy) January 21, 2013

Thank you Michael Steele.

— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) January 21, 2013

His best remarks on anything, ever. Now if only he’d dump that cult he joined. RT @joanwalsh: Thank you Michael Steele.

Several wondered why Steele continues to associate himself with the GOP:

@utbrp Michael Steele really needs to hang up his GOP skates and embrace his Democratic soul.

I just can’t believe Michael Steele hasn’t jumped to Dem!!

Particularly when you consider the GOP’s platform of raaaaacism:

When is Michael Steele going to walk away from the Republican party. Conservative is fine; racist/homophobic no. Look at your bedmates Mike.

— Robert Morton (@remorton) January 21, 2013

Even when he was the GOP man.RT @gryking: LOL. RT @reecykup: Michael Steele ain’t invited to secret GOP meetings. #whitepower

That also probably explains why some Republicans decided not to attend the ceremony, right? Clearly everyone else thought it was a momentous occasion.
