Puppet Michael Steele shares his thoughts on his RNC chairman successor, Reince Priebus. (5:49)

A LITTLE EXTRA EXCITEMENT IN

THE AIR.

IF YOU SENSE A LITTLE EXTRA

EXCITEMENT IN THE AIR, A

LITTLE TINGLING IN THE

EXTREMITIES PROBABLY DUE TO

THE FACT THAT THE RNC GATHERED

ON FRIDAY TO CAST THEIR

BALLOTS FOR A NEW PARTY CHAIR.

FIVE CANDIDATE VYING FOR THE

JOB AMONG THEM MICHAEL STEEL

THAT IS KNOWN FOR HIS STRONG

OPINIONS AND FOR HIS DISTRICT

TIFF STREET STYLE.

>> MY STYLE IS MORE GRASS

ROOTS ORIENTED.

I'M MUCH MORE OF A STREET GUY.

IN THE NORTHEAST I WEAR MY

HATS BACKWARDS.

THAT'S HOW WE ROLL IN THE

NORTHEAST.

>> Jon: DON'T GET ME STARTED

ON THE NORTHEAST RICH MARITIME

TRADITION.

SCRIMSHAW.

A LONG SHOT FOR RE-ELECTION.

EVEN DURING HIS OPENING

ADDRESS-- KNOCK YOURSELVES

OUT.

EVEN DURING HIS OPENING

ADDRESS THERE WERE SIGNS IT

WOULDN'T BE MICHAEL STEELE'S

DAY.

>> YOU HAVE ALL PROVEN AND

SHOWN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS

A GOOD PARTY.

AND IT IS READY... (LAUGHING).

>> Jon: (BEEP) MAGNETS.

BY THE WAY, WHAT WAS THE LOGO

UNDERNEATH THE RNC SEAL?

I'M BEING TOLD THAT IT'S THE

LOGO OF THE HOTEL WHERE THEY

HELD THE VOTES WHICH IS THE

GAYLORD NATIONAL.

THE LOGO IS A FLAMING G.

I AM NOT THE RNC CHAIRMAN.

I AM LORD OF GAY.

THE VOTING TOOK ALL AFTERNOON

GOING THROUGH SEVEN ROUNDS OF

BALLOTING BUT BY THE FOURTH

ROUND IT WAS CLEAR STEELE

COULD NOT WIN SO HE GRACEFULLY

CONCEDED.

>> I THANK YOU FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE.

AND NOW I EXIT STAGE RIGHT.

>> Jon: WOW.

EXIT STAGE RIGHT.

SO MANY GREAT REPUBLICANS HE

COULD HAVE QUOTED, REAGAN,

LINCOLN AND HE GOES WITH

SNAGAL PUSS.

EXIT STAGE RIGHT.

HEAVENS TO MERGUTROID.

>> I AT THIS TIME I RELEASE MY

SUPPORTERS.

AND I ASK THEM TO STAND WITH

ME IN SUPPORTING MARIA AS NEXT

CHAIRMAN OF THE CAUCUS.

>> Jon: AN ENDORSEMENT EVEN IN

DEFEAT ALLOWING STEELE TO

LEAVE HIS MARK TO HELP SHAPE

THE PARTY'S FUTURE.

MY GUESS IT'S CLEAR WHO IS

GOING TO WIN.

>> ON THE 7th BALLOT ROOIS

REINCE PRIEBUS WON.

HE'S THE NEW REPUBLICAN

NATIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN.

>> Jon: NAILED IT.

MICHAEL STEELE EXIT.

WISCONSIN STATE PARTY CHAIRMAN

REINCE PRIEBUS ENTER.

YOU CAN'T SPELL PUBIC RE-RINSE

WITHOUT REINCE PRIEBUS.

NOW SOME OF YOU AT HOME MAY BE

SAYING WHAT IS A REINCE

PRIEBUS.

SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING YOU

WOULD FIND IN AN IKEA

CATALOGUE.

AND YOU WOULD BE RIGHT.

FUN FACT.

AT NIGHT REINCE PRIEBUS TURNS

INTO A BED.

OF COURSE, WE ARE SADDENED TO

SEE MICHAEL STEELE'S TENURE

COME TO AN END AS HIS NUMEROUS

NON-APPEARANCES ON THIS

PROGRAM CEMENTED HIS ROLE AS A

GREAT FRIEND TO OUR PROGRAM.

>> LUNCH MEAT.

THAT'S WHAT I SAID SUGAR

BREAD.

LIKE A DRIBBLE.

>> Jon: YES, IT SEEMS LIKE IT

WAS ONLYIESTER-BIBBLE.

FOR HIS REACTION TO BEING

VOTED OUT WE CHECK IN ONE LAST

TIME WITH MICHAEL STEELE.

HE JOINS US LIVE FROM HIS HOME

OFFICE IN UPPER MARBLEBORO

MARYLAND.

WELCOME, MR. STEELE.

>> AS THE GREAT ALBERT SWITSER

ONCE SAID THE TRAGEDY OF LIFE

IS WHAT DIES INSIDE A MAN

WHILE HE LIVES.

NOW AS I FIND MYSELF PERCHED

ON THE PRECIPICE OF A NEW LIFE,

I FIND MYSELF ASKING, HOW MUCH

OF ME STILL LIVES AND IS IT

ENOUGH TO CARRY ON?

>> YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN YOUR

FACE.

YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN YOUR FACE,

MEL ROSE PLACE.

>> Jon: YOU GOT ME.

>> I DID MORE THAN GET YOU.

YOU GOT DUPED LIKE HEARTY

SOUP.

>> Jon: GOOD TO SEE YOU.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF YOUR

SUCCESSOR REINCE PRIEBUS?

>> REINCE PRIEBUS.

HIS NAME MAKES NO SENSE.

IT'S JIBILRISH.

WHO IS HIS MOM?

JODY FOSTER'S CHARACTER?

>> Jon: WOW.

THAT'S A DEEP CUT.

>> YEAH, I SAID IT.

>> Jon: HIS NAME IS KIND OF

FUNNY.

>> NOT HALF AS FUNNY AS HIS

FACE.

LOOK AT HIM.

THIS GUY LOOKS LIKE ZIGGY

AFTER HALF A CAN OF ROGAINE.

>> Jon: DO YOU HAVE ANY

SUBSTANTIVE TO SAY ABOUT

REINCE PRIEBUS?

>> I'M NOT SAYING HE'S A DICK

FROM WISCONSIN BUT BRETT FARVE

JUST TEXTED ME HIS PICTURE.

>> Jon: HE SEEMS LIKE A NICE

FELLOW.

VERY NORMAL.

WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOU NOW THAT

YOU'RE NO LONGER CHAIRMAN OF

THE RNC?

>> JOHN, I SPENT MONEY THAT

DIDN'T BELONG TO ME ON LESBIAN

STRIPPERS.

I LEFT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

$20 MILLION IN DEBT WITH

VIRTUALLY NO ACCOUNTABILITY.

I'D SAY IT'S TIME FOR ME TO

HEAD BACK TO THE STREETS.

WALL STREET.

MAKE YOUR WAY, FRASER CRANE.

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY.
