Michael Steele launches new blog called, um, “What Up?”

What can I tell you. He had a good few months there, though, didn’t he?

Welcome back, chairman.

The Internet has been around a while, now. But, I still find it an amazing platform for innovation, not just in technology, but in life. Beyond admiring the way it powers so many inventions and businesses, it has become a personal thing for me. I love the fact that, wherever I might be, I can use technology to see my family and chat with them, and Social Media to tap into what my friends are doing.

Today, I want to begin to better connect with Republicans everywhere.

My first blog entry, therefore, is really a couple of questions for you; use the comment button to send me replies. We will run as many questions as we can, which I will answer.

Why are you are Republican? Think about that for a minute.

I’m not registered with any party, actually, annnnnnd pretty happy about it today. Among the glitches on the newly redesigned GOP.com: The site password was visible for a time in the New York section and the “Future Leaders” page was left (temporarily) blank. Quoth the chairman: “It’s a beta site, meaning that there — we’re working out a lot of the kinks and the bugs… So the Dems can have their fun.” And so they have. Way to score an own goal, pal, completely needlessly and amateurishly.

Oh, and apologies to LGF on behalf of our “wingnut blog” for failing to cover this sooner. Granted, there were not one but two items about it sitting in Headlines for hours, but when a site that gave up blogging about Iran and the New York City terror plot to focus on the urgent threat from creationism tells you you’re falling down on the job, you listen.

Why are you are Republican?

Why are I are Republican? The question is, why are you are chairman of our club?

OK, I just got banned from “LGF” and what did I say that was so bad, well I would copy my text but it was erased.. something like… why do we have the war on “Hot Air”? We can find kooks posting on almost any blog.. left or right… what we should really be doing is pointing out the people with real power that are abusing it and shine a light on them…

Someone named freetoken responded “Because it is now standard practice over there, and with the passive approval of the people who run the place.”..

I couldn’t even respond before I was blocked…

If we cannot have a healthy discussion then we have nothing… LGF is gone from my bookmarks… Charles must have lost it.. and I was a big fan of his since I’m a programmer and really liked what he had done with his site… he seems to have gone to the dark side…
