Posted on January 18 2010 9:00 am
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

After a run of Good Michael, in recent weeks, Steele has revived fears of Bad Michael with a media blitz in which he 1) said the Republican Party could not win back the House of Representatives this year; 2) defended his practice of mixing paid speeches with RNC trips; 3) blindsided fellow Republican leaders by releasing a highly opinionated book they weren’t expecting; and 4) addressed his critics by saying, “If you don’t want me in the job, fire me. But until then, shut up.”

Bad Michael is back. “This is not helpful, and nobody thinks it’s helpful,” says another RNC member who opposed Steele’s election. “He needs to understand that.”
