The Republican National Committee is trying to set up meetings between Chairman Michael Steele and foreign ambassadors to the United States,
according to an email obtained by POLITICO an effort that has puzzled diplomats as well as fellow Republicans.

An RNC intern sent a message late last month to at least one ambassador on behalf of Neil Alpert, a senior finance aide, with little explanation.

As you know, the November election is just 103 days away and the Chairman would like to extend to you an invitation to sit down either at the
RNC or at your embassy to discuss the upcoming 2010 midterm elections, wrote Christopher Kelleher, a finance department intern. With literally
hundreds of congressional seats up for grabs in just under four months, Chairman Steel would love to have the opportunity to discuss the Party's
outlook with you.

It is illegal for foreign nationals to contribute to American candidates or political parties.

Steele is every bit as batshit crazy as Palin, Bachmann, and Angle.



"Because that is how we roll, Baby!." I hope he stays on forever as chair of the RNC.
