Picking a quote for this week was harder than I thought because with the Presidential election, there were so many to choose from.
We had John McCain's concession speech. We had John McCain's staff attacking Sarah Palin in an attempt to blame their blatant incompetence on her. We had Sarah Palin's response.
We had Barack Obama's acceptance speech. We had Barack Obama's idiotic attempt at humor at the expense of Nancy Reagan. The Dems have a list of Reagan jokes to draw from if they want to impress their friends.
Curiously, we haven't heard much from Joe Biden. My suspicion is Obama threw away the key to the muzzle he put on Biden a month or so ago. I think we've heard the last of Joe.
So, feel sorry for me, this wasn't an easy choice.

Michael Steele, former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, current Chairman of GOPAC.

For Mr. Steele's words of wisdom and continuing support of America, I give him the Eagle
