Michael Steele's First 100 Days: "There's A Logic Behind It"

Michael Steele's tenure as Republican National Committee chairman has been...well, eventful. He called Rush Limbaugh "an entertainer...incendiary," only to join the line of Republicans who apologized to the de facto party leader. He caused a stir among party colleagues by calling, correctly in my view, abortion "an individual choice" and homosexuality an innate orientation. 

Hosting a radio show, Steele laughed along with a caller who called Obama "the magic Negro." He told Glenn Beck that there's "no reason" to trust the Republicans. He stated on "Morning Joe" that he likes to "wear my hat backwards, you know, because that's how we roll in the Northeast."

Steele has assured us, "If I do something, there's a reason for it. Even it may look like a mistake, a gaffe. There's a rationale, a logic behind it." Victor Zapanta of Think Progress has put together a video retrospective of Michael Steele's first 100 days. As you watch, see if you can discern the logic behind the chairman's words and actions:
