Quote of the Day

Freshly-minted RNC chairman Michael Steele getting harsh on the stimulus plans:

Not in the history of mankind has the government ever created a job.

I guess he thinks all those people who are in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, not to mention the suppliers and contractors thereof, or the millions of people who work to keep the public schools running (the School Board of Miami-Dade County is the county’s largest non-private sector employer), or the people who helped build the roads and run the FAA and maintain the infrastructure, not to mention Mr. Steele himself, the former Lt. Governor of Maryland, were all doing it on their free time from their real jobs?

Is it any wonder that Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh are the leaders of the GOP?
