RNC Head Michael Steele is Scranton Branch Head Michael Scott

Gawker brought this TPM clip to our attention yesterday (and boy is it depressing, how ill-informed the putative head of one of the major parties is when it comes to the details of health care, but anyway, sad America/tragicomic modern existence, etc.). The key thing to take away from this bumbling video is just how similar Michael Steele is to Michael Scott.

Note the uncertain repetition of the question, followed by the misplaced confidence of the pure bullshit artist who thinks he’s getting away with it. For comparison’s sake, here’s Michael Scott doing some improv of his own. Laugh through your tears America!
