My Questions:

  • Was anyone there besides people trying to sell their or their companies’ products and services?
  • Why weren’t arrangements made to allow people outside the Beltway to participate–not just watch?

Unanswered and Unanswerable Questions I Asked on Twitter This Week

I guess most of the people who follow me on Twitter follow so many people that they don’t have a chance read all of my tweets.  I was hoping for answers to some of these questions; others are rhetorical:

  • If liberals believe in evolution, why doesn’t the survival of the fittest apply in economic/financial situations?
  • How did the single mother with six children who had octuplets pay for the fertilization procedure and her medical care?
  • Don’t you think the liberals want us all on welfare? Isn’t that socialism?
  • Where in the Constitution does the Congress have the authority to be trying to influence the economy?
  • How could he [McCain] be what we (conservatives) wanted when he was selected by Democrats, independents, and the media?
  • Do any of them [Republican Senators] know how to really filibuster–as Jimmy Stewart did in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington?
  • Can Steele tell Republican senators that if they vote for the porkulus bill, they won’t get any money from the RNC in the future?
  • If the porkulus bill passes the Senate, doesn’t a joint committee have to reconcile differences, then the houses revote?

I’d still like answers to the second, sixth, and seventh questions.

RNC Chairman

This afternoon I heard the GOPAC chairman and former lieutenant governor of Maryland Michael Steele on Sean Hannity’s show.  Apparently Steele has decided to run for RNC Chairman.  (I haven’t found out yet how the position is filled.)  I was impressed with what he had to say.

An article in Monday’s Washington Post listed several contenders:

  • Michael Steele
  • Mike Duncan, current RNC Chairman
  • Newt Gingrich
  • Katon Dawson, chairman of the South Carolina GOP
  • Chip Saltsman, former chairman of the Tennessee GOP and Huckabee’s campaign chairman
  • Jim Nussle, head of White House OMB
  • Saul Anuzis, chairman of Michigan GOP
  • Jim Greer, chairman of Florida GOP

At this point, Steele would be my first choice, and Gringrich my second.  (I’ve never even heard of the others.)  The right person in this position could fill the leadership vacuum in the conservative movement and help in rebuilding it and the GOP.

Here is a video of Steele’s speech at the GOP convention this year from the C-SPAN channel on YouTube:
