Outgoing RNC Chairman Michael Steele would be wise to go on Jon
‘s “Daily Show” sooner rather than later if only to get Comedy Central’s late night pundit to retire his Michael Steele puppet. As the New York Post’s Page Six noted, “Jon Stewart broke out his infamous Michael Steele puppet one last time the other day to mock the Republican National Committee chairman as he stepped down from his post. Stewart claims he used the puppet only because Steele refused to come on his show.” Apparently Steele is ready to go on now that he’s out of office (“I’d love to do his show at some point,” he told the FrumForum), and “The Daily Show” is looking forward to accommodating him. Stay tuned.
