Democratic Strategist Lanny Davis and former RNC Chairman Michael Steele launched the bipartisan political consulting firm Purple Nation Solutions on Monday and received instant criticism from both the left and right.
Channeling his best Deepak Chopra, Steele responded to that criticism. "If I paid attention to half of the stuff said about me, I'd be in a straightjacket," he told U.S News & World Report. "You know how I deal with it? I look in the mirror every morning and I say, 'I like this guy.'"
