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:
— Sandra F. Woodward (@KySandy) January 21, 2013
Thank you Michael Steele.

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

Well said, Michael Steele (R): “shame on those Republicans who didn’t want to be part of this day.” Bam!

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.

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