Steele's GOP renaissance

Michael Steele, the gabby chairman of the Republican National Committee, never fails to amuse. One could fill pages of his deepest jaunty insights into President Obama's shortcomings,  and his own party's return to credible parity with the Democrats on the nation's problems.   We look for his words each day to brighten the otherwise  sustained gloom of  political discourse.  For that reason, I can't overlook another opportunity to give him the Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) award for his optimistic outlook for the GOP, declaring:        
"Our renaissance has begun."
 Funny.  He was contradicted by the latest Pew Research Center poll that now gives Democrats a 53-36 advantage over Republicans in voter preferences.  Seven years ago it was 43-43. Renaissance?  Michaelangelo rolled over in his grave.

....and who will play Savanarola to Steele's Lorenzo? I look forward to Jakob Burkhardt's Part II.

Won't be difficult to find a Lorenzo. There are still dreamers who lust for the Medici's wealth and power. They were the original Bank of America.
