Steele: Open to prez run if that's 'where God wants me to be' (CNN)
From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

(CNN) Embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele told CNN Wednesday he'd consider running for president someday, but stressed he has never given serious thought to a potential White House bid.

Speaking to CNN's Don Lemon, Steele said he may decide to seek the presidency at some point if he determines that's "where God wants me to be."

"God has a way of revealing stuff to you, and making it real for you, through others," Steele said. "And if that's part of the plan, it'll be the plan. it'll be because that's where God wants me to be at that time."

Steele also brushed aside charges that his initial weeks as GOP lead have been marked by a series of damaging gaffes, including his initial criticism of Rush Limbaugh and his subsequent apology to the popular talk radio host.

"I am a cause and effect kind of guy," he said. "So if I do something there's is a reason for it. Even if it may look like a mistake, a gaffe, there is a rational{e}, there is a logic behind it."

3. In Jail
I was talking to God this morning...We play Golf and I hate playing with him, but he always buys the beers.

Anyway, God says he wants Steele in Jail.

Back to my Golf story...I know God cheats. He got 18 holes in one. One shot and it went into every hole!
But, it does make for a quick round.

4. God does not care about individual sports teams. God wants us to work for ourselves,

and not use God's name as a narcissistic, vain reference.

Steele is a wretched twit.

Besides, most people who claim God has talked to them end up in a psychiatric ward... or leader of the free world, it seems and we all know who should have ended up in the cuckoo nest...
