Embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has at least one high-powered friend in the GOP: Sarah Palin.

The former Alaska governor came to Steele's defense on Sean Hannity's Fox News Channel show, saying: "I support Michael Steele. ... I think he's doing a great job. Michael Steele is an outsider. The machine, I think, is tough to penetrate ... I think it's been good to have an independent outsider trying to create some change in the Republican Party."

Steele has come under fire recently for the RNC's spending habits, including the embarrassing revelation that a staffer had tried to expense a $2,000 visit to a sex-themed nightclub. He also has been criticized for the fact that the RNC raised less money in March than its Democratic counterpart.

The Hill newspaper outlined Steele's wilting support within GOP ranks, noting: "Republican leaders in Congress have also chastised Steele. House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) told The Hill in an interview last month that he only talks to Steele 'every month or two,' adding that Steele has no role in the House GOP's 2010 version of the 1994 Contract with America. House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) in January publicly chided Steele for holding an RNC retreat in Hawaii."
