The man of Steele has met his kryptonite: his mouth

Michael Steele just can't get out of his own way.   It seems like all this guy does is stick his foot in his mouth.

He's like Joe Biden on steroids when it comes to gaffes.  His latest beaut: in an interview with GQ Magazine, he appeared to be supporting the pro-choice position.

Keep in mind a majority of Americans are pro-chocie, but for an RNC Chairman it's a non-starter.  The story posted online a few hours ago, and almost instantly drew a backlash from conservatives.   Who  knows if he'll survive this; he was already on thin ice, and now it just cracked.

At the end of the day, the party needs a leader who can identify a few winning issues and organize for the 2010 congressional races.  Steele wasn't doing either, and it's unlikely he'll be around much longer.
