The new chair­man of the Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee, for mer Mary­land Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, re­cently head­lined the Repub­li­can Women’s Fed­eral Fo­rum at the Capi­tol Hill Club, and suf­fice to say he stole the show.

The din­ing room was packed, and fol­low­ing Mr. Steele’s rous­ing speech he was af­forded a long stand­ing ova­tion by the GOP ladies. In fact, he was stormed by the ad­mir­ers to the point that, ac­cord­ing to one ob­server, “it looked like a mosh pit!”

Even­tu­ally, the group’s chair­man, Judy Black, grabbed the mi­cro­phone and re­quested that the crowd of women al­low Mr. Steele to leave the room be­cause he had other ap­point­ments to keep.
