From the Washington Monthly.
Referencing the now unfriended neocon David Frum's recent riff that ""Republicans originally thought that Fox [News] worked for us, and now we are discovering we work for Fox," a recent RNC fundraising e-mail is reprinted in it's entirety. It would seem that Chairman Steele is stumping more for Hannity than his party.
RNC Chairman Michael Steele"Dear XXXX,
I wanted to let you know that I just finished reading Sean Hannity's new book, Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radical Agenda. As they so often do, Sean's words left me energized for November and even more committed to making the gains necessary to bring the Obama agenda to a halt.
In the book, Sean does more than just tell us why we need to defeat the Obama Agenda. He also gives us a blueprint for getting it done. I cannot recommend it enough -- and I'm confident that, like me, you will be ready for the upcoming elections with a renewed commitment.
Chairman, Republican National Committee"
Sean Hannity and Air Force Amy
To the casual reader, it would seem more of an attempt to raise sales of the book than to raise Committee funds at a time when Steele is under fire for so much apparent waste. And yes, that is an undoctored photo of Mr. Hannity with Nevada's famously legal prostitute Air Force Amy. Oh, family values.
