Feel the Need to Apologize to Rush Limbaugh?

The nation--and the Republican Party--is quickly learning what we Marylanders knew all along, which is that this 6'4" guy named Steele whose sister was once married to Mike Tyson is a complete wimp.

I guess so. I guess that's also why the Republican Party is gasping its last breaths. I mean, if the best they can come up with is Steele and Jindal, well, then, I guess that says it all, doesn't it?

Also, Jindal's a Roman Catholic. How many Republicans are Roman Catholics?

Catholics are a swing bloc. In every presidential election since 1972, the winner of the popular vote has also won the Catholic vote. In short, they are a prized demographic, constituting about one-fourth of the U.S. populace and generally divided about evenly between Republicans and Democrats.

Of course, right-wing evangelicals might hesitate to support a brown-skinned Catholic and ex-Hindu, but they don't necessarily dictate who gets nominated. Otherwise, we wouldn't have gotten McCain.
