Michael Steele's flights of fancy

I normally don't discuss purely political matters. However, the Washington Post reports that Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is in more hot water for profligate expenditures like private jets and expensive hotels ... and, apparently, a $1,946.25 visit to Voyuer West Hollywood, "a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex."

To which, one commenter posted, "You just can't trust Republicans. They say they love freedom, but they dream of putting everyone in bondage."

This review on Yelp by "Richard D" from Union City, NJ, has to be a joke (it's dated today, 3/29/2010):

Hi I really love this place its not only the new trendy place on the strip but offers a really kinky slant on nightclubs, The price is the real problem - My friend Michael and I spent $1946 dollars on bottle service and tips for dancers - lucky we were on an expense account !!!!!! We are from out of town and dont get to see this back east. We always new LA girls were hot and kinky but this was just too much. Its a great place to let loose when your on a business trip and no one knows who you are. Sometimes you have to drop your conservative ways and let loose - this is the perfect place - as long as its not on your dime!!

Steele denies making this particular expense.
