On The Early Show, GOP Chairman Michael Steele explains that the party website featuring Nancy Pelosi in front of a wall of flames and the title "Fire Pelosi" is in no way extreme, and had to be "tamed... down."

I'm unsure of whether the flames behind her are supposed to be a metaphor or a simile or an analogy, or if it's just stupid. Maybe the torching of the Speaker is some parliamentary procedure I'm unaware of.
