Michael Steele was a joke, a Hail Mary pass, from the beginning...

It was an absolutely desperate attempt for the lilly-white Republican party to appear more 'inclusive' by having someone of color be in charge of the RNC...

Didn't work too well from what I can tell...

You think its MY definition? Jees, I've been accused of a lot of things but NEVER owning the rights to dictionary.com or even wikipedia.

I'll have to call my lawyers and tell them I have golfgod's authority that I own the rights to some commonly used online dictionary websites, Obviously I should be benefit from these rights somehow... After all, liberals are never wrong, except of course when they arent right, about things like the definitions of commonly used words like "pundit", welfare, the economy, job creations, the environment, taxes, the stock market, welfare, etc.. I could go on, but I'm afraid cd's hard drives would be full before the list is complete..

As usual you spin things into incoherence - but totally predictable coming from you...

Anyone with even half a brain (no - 1/4 will do) knows that the Republican party is anything BUT inclusive...

Ever see the audience that attends McCain or Palin rallies??? Mostly white and middle aged or senior citizens...

Steele is just another failed attempt to have a 'great black hope' to somehow rejuvenate the dying Republican party!!!

Didn't work too well, now did it???

Steele is not looked upon as an equal by the bigoted members of the GOP, they'll find a reason to get rid of him,... his days are most certainly numbered.
Thank you for this post. Steele is an embarassment to mankind. He lowered himself to the lowest of lows. Good riddance to him.

Again, sir or madam, try to pick up some reading comprehension skills. I never said it was not what the dictionary DENOTED. However my statement referred to your CONNOTATION.

Anyone can argue anything they want. If you use the term "Koala bear" (because frankly almost everyone does) I may point out to you that the Koala is NOT a bear, but rather a marsupial, like a kangaroo. Of course that would give you license to say that Koalas live in trees and don't hop across the plains, and that somehow I was wrong.

How about we end this discussion this way; you find me an example of anyone, other than you, referring to Steele or the head of the DNC as a pundit. Link it on here and I will admit that that person shares your narrow definition of why Steele is a pundit, instead of a party head. Of course by your definition Sarah Palin is a pundit, instead of a LIAR, a so-so governor of a socialist state and a failed VP candidate.

So this is your way at admitting my use of the word is correct while you continue to argue with me that it was wrong..

Just WHAT is your problem???

You seem to argue incessently with almost everyone - and have a pathological need to get in the last-word on each post...

Does it somehow make you feel good???

Do you really think anyone values what you say to begin with???

Why don't you stop attacking everyone and being so totally obnoxious and arrogant - and maybe you'll find more gracious responses to your diatribes.
