Several prominent conservatives offered swift, negative reactions to Michael Steele on Friday, after the RNC chairman was caught on camera saying that Afghanistan is a largely unwinnable war of President Obama's choosing.
The pushback crested with Bill Kristol -- still an influential voice among Republican lawmakers -- writing a letter to Steele on his Weekly Standard site calling for the RNC leader's resignation.
Needless to say, the war in Afghanistan was not "a war of Obama's choosing." It has been prosecuted by the United States under Presidents Bush and Obama. Republicans have consistently supported the effort.

MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan:
In the meantime it is important that we educate ourselves as to how badly we are being abused and destroyed by our government and our banks.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul has raised more than $1 million in campaign contributions in the past three months.
Paul campaign spokesman David Adams told The Associated Press on Thursday the campaign took in $1.1 million during the quarter that just ended. He declined to say how much cash the campaign has on hand.
The money includes totals from a Washington event sponsored by U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell and a 24-hour Internet "Moneyblast." The total from the past three months exceeds the amounts Paul raised in the previous two quarters.

GRAND ISLE, La. – Rough seas generated by Hurricane Alex pushed more oil from the massive spill onto Gulf coast beaches as cleanup vessels were sidelined by the far-away storm's ripple effects.
The hurricane was churning coastal waters across the oil-affected region on the Gulf of Mexico. Waves as high as 6 feet and winds over 25 mph were forecast through Thursday just off shore from the Mississippi Delta in Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.
In Louisiana, the storm pushed an oil patch toward Grand Isle and uninhabited Elmer's Island, dumping tar balls as big as apples on the beach.
