(Hey, my dad was in the Navy, I'm allowed to use that expression.  Now you know where the swearing comes from.)

Here at Sine Timore, we try to be bipartisan in our ire.  We take potshots at everyone regardless of political affiliation.  Some of you no doubt remember the yux I had when Nancy Pelosi's bar tab for the past couple of years came to light.  Well, fair is fair, and it's now time for me to open up a can of lulz on the Republicans.  This never gets old.

Michael Steele is the chairman of the Republican National Committee.  He also has a porn star's name.  Which probably explains this:

"A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,620.71 spent [update: the amount is actually $1,946.25] at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex."

Now, this is pretty funny in its own right given how much the GOP likes to push its abstinence programs and pretend sex doesn't exist and just say no to sex and Jesus wouldn't approve and all that.  But strictly speaking, this is no worse than the R's that have been busted having covert gay sex.  So that's not what makes this lulz.  THIS is what makes it lulz:

"A 2009 spending spree has left the Republican National Committee (RNC) with its worst election-year cash flow this decade.

The largest GOP party committee has $8.7 million in the bank heading into an election year with 37 governors’ races, a dozen major Senate contests, dozens more in the House and an all-important redistricting cycle on the horizon.

Said one RNC official: “It is very troubling, and the thing is, most people don’t understand this. But it is really troubling.”

The RNC had $22.8 million in cash and no debt when Michael Steele was elected chairman at the end of January, but has since seen its cash on hand drop to less than $9 million at the end of November."

Whoever said "cheaper to rent" never met this guy.....

Michael Steele is also the name of the former Bangles bass player, who had previously gone by the name "Micki" when she was with the Runaways.

Well, for her, Micki Steele is a rawkr name. Who played with the Bangles. With Suzanna Hoffs. Who I have a crush on. Who claims to have recorded "Eternal Flame" in the nude....

Thank you for making me start the morning off with a boxer tuck....
