Michigan GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis

I read in USA today Michigan GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis want’s to be the RNC chairman. I thought the article was rather disturbing.

“Anuzis said the next RNC leader has to be familiar with the latest technology if the party is to rebuild. Given his familiarity with blogging, twittering and raising money over the Internet, he thinks he’d be the best to move the party forward.”

The article goes on the point out under Anuzis Republicans have lost 2006 governor’s race and the 2006 and 2008 U.S. Senate races six seats in the state House in 2006 and nine this year, as well as a spot on the Michigan Supreme Court and two congressional seats.

He‘s quotes as saying, “It is clear that the odds are stacked against us here in Michigan unless something is done to change the national perception of our party — which is why I seek the post of RNC chairman. I hope to change all that,” Anuzis wrote Wednesday in an e-mail.

Why would someone with a record like this put himself forward to head the RNC?

Am I the only person who thinks this is ridiculous?

Is this guy a better choice than Michael Steele?

What is he saying about the national party? Is Bush’s fault, or Social Conservatives, or Palin, or Abortion, or Low Taxes? What do you think he means by “national perception of our party.”
