From TALKING POINTS MEMO:
Michael Steele introduced a new fashion accessory at today’s Republican National Committee meeting in Kansas City, when, like almost everyone in the audience, the RNC Chairman donned a bright-red “Fire Pelosi” cap. It was something of a theme at the event. And a “Fire Nancy Pelosi” bus tour will begin this fall.
What is it with Michael Phathead Steele and hats? From POLITICO (4/30/09):
Republican National Chairman Michael Steele said Thursday that despite Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter’s recent departure, the GOP remains a party of many hats because “that’s how we roll.”
“I look at it this way,” Steele explained to the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The four of us are, let’s say for the sake of this example, all wearing a hat that says ‘GOP.’ All right?”
“You wear your hat one way. You like to wear it, you know, kind of cocked to the left, you know, because that’s cool out West,” Steele said. “In the Midwest, you guys like to wear it a little bit to the right. In the South, you guys like to wear the brim straight ahead. Now, the Northeast, I wear my hat backwards, you know, because that’s how we roll in the Northeast.”
“But what do you recognize?” Steele asked. “We all are wearing the hat that says ‘GOP’ because that’s what we believe. That’s who we are.”
Well, kids, I can’t show you all 500 hats, but we can look at a few of them. We’ve already seen a couple of them, like the matador hat he wore to impress Michele Batshit Bachmann:
…as well as the Carmen Miranda special:
…nothing says phatxheadx like a bicorne hat!
Now, I’m not fashion maven, but I think a hat should reflect your personalty.
