Michael Steele Is Not Julius Caesar

Recently deposed RNC chair Michael Steele is a little upset about the betrayal of his successor Reince Priebus.
"I know exactly how Caesar felt," Steele says, without a hint of irony. "It is what it is." He claims that Priebus had been planning to defect for six, seven, eight months before announcing a bid for the chairmanship. Steele was blindsided. "I trust my friends. Well, I guess the adage is right. In Washington, you should get a dog...We put a lot of resources in Wisconsin over the last two years...that's what you do for [the] team."
But Julius Caesar wasn't a buffoon. Steele should have compared himself to Nero instead.
