Q: Should people have access to buy assault weapons?
A: Society should draw lines. What do you need an assault weapon for, if you're going hunting? That's overkill. But I don't think that means you go to a total ban for those who want to use gun for skeet shooting or hunting or things like that." -- Michael Steele, in an October 16, 2006 Washington Post interview.
"I have to say, I like that he’s different. He’s an out-of-the-box thinker, or at least willing to give those who have ideas for these non-traditional messages a go. No, I don’t agree with him on every policy point. In fact, I probably disagree with him more than I agree with him. But the role of RNC Chair isn’t about setting policy or casting votes on the House or Senate floors. He’s there to raise money, promote the brand, and run a great election shop. It will be interesting to see how Steele performs." -- Sebastian's honey, the self-named "Bitter Bitch," on Michael Steele at Snowflakes in Hell.
Juxtapose if you will, Steele's support for an AWB with the Snowflake blog's support for him. Note how Sebastian's honey doesn't even mention Steele's endorsement for an AW ban and instead lauds his "outside the box" thinking. Kudos to Sebastian's better half -- there's some political leadership we can follow to victory.

Correction: The quote above was originally attributed to NRA-apologist Sebastian, whereas it was actually posted on his website by the brains in the family, Sebastian's NRA and GOP apologist better half, the self-described "Bitter Bitch." OK, if she says so. My apologies to Sebastian for the misattribution. As I have an ex-wife, I know that it is possible to sleep with an opinion without necessarily agreeing with it.
