RNC lets the goodtimes roll with Bondage-Gate

It'd be tough to makes this mess up.

Steele in the limelight.



The Michael Buzz: Almost immediately after the news broke this week about the Republican National Committee's "Bondage-Gate," scandal, the fallout began. And it hasn't been good for either the RNC or its embattled chairman, Michael Steele. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum said he was "disgusted" by the incident in which the RNC expensed a nearly $2,000 bill for a risque Los Angeles nightclub. Meanwhile, other GOP figures, such as Rep. John Shadegg (R-Ariz.) and former Bush adviser Karl Rove seemed similarly troubled by the RNC's apparent reckless spending. Steele has been no stranger to criticism. A recent National Journal poll of political insiders found that a large majority of GOP politicos considered Michael Steele a "liability."

Now, Sarah gets in on the act. New Orleans might be a little loose for her.


The Sarah Buzz: Sarah Palin asked the RNC for a second time Wednesday to take her name off an invitation to a New Orleans fundraiser, Politico reports. The invitation includes Palin as an "invited speaker" to the event, but the former Alaska Governor has no plans to take part in the RNC fundraiser.

And now the FRC wants in on the love.



The Homo-Hating Buzz: Tony Perkins, director of the religious conservative group the Family Research Council, has penned an email newsletter to his organization that will encourage members not to donate to the RNC, Politico's Ben Smith reports.


So much for that enemy of my enemy thing...

The RNC shares the love with the DNC.



The RnDNC Buzz: On Wednesday, RNC Communications Director Doug Heye tried to alleviate some of the pressure on his group by releasing a list of DNC expenditures to reporters. The DNC shot back quickly with an email accusing the RNC of "flailing" in an attempt to "change the subject." “The DNC, unlike the RNC, does not conduct business while watching women engaged in lesbian bondage scenes,” the email from DNC spokesman Hari Sevugan read.


So what kind of bondage scenes does the DNC prefer?
