And, as most of my friends know, I love the HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher. So imagine my surprise when I plunked myself down on the sofa tonight to catch a rerun of the first show of Maher's new season only to find out that one of his guests is ... drum roll, if you please ... Michael Steele!
No, really! And he's also a lawyer!
The REAL Michael Steele appeared distinguished, articulate, stable and intelligent, without even a hint of the cockiness and sarcasm of his fictitious counterpart. The former Lt. Governor of Maryland, the REAL Michael Steele is now the director of GOPAC, a national organization dedicated exclusively to electing Republicans to state and local offices.
Okay, so no one is perfect.
