"Steele accuses Democratic congressman of ‘climbing up on Nancy Pelosi’s lap.’"

Yesterday, RNC Chairman Michael Steele made appearances in Indiana and Ohio, criticizing and taunting Reps. Baron Hill (D-IN) and Zack Space (D-OH). During an appearance in Zanesville, OH, Steele took aim at Space, offensively saying that he’s “climbing up on Nancy Pelosi’s lap“:

He took jabs at U.S. Rep. Zack Space for not holding a town-hall forum on the issue and “climbing up on Nancy Pelosi’s lap” by voting for cap-and-trade energy legislation and supporting the Democrats’ proposals to reform health care.

Steele asked those in attendance to pay attention to the debate throughout the fall because Democrats “are guaranteed to bury language in the bill with triggers to do what they want to get done.”

Update

Here’s the video of Steele’s comment:
