Canidate #1 Michael Steele
This guy is so confused… almost as confused as the Republican Party. Steele is confused in that he doesn’t get that he is a tool for the party. He is not to express an honest opinion or come up with any innovative ideas. Most of the time he stuck to the party line; especially during the presidential election. He attacked President to be Obama at every opportunity afforded him. He was utterly ridiculous on the Bill Mahr show. Which again is fitting of what they want from him. This is why he was granted a chance to be GOP figure head. They trusted him to keep their ideas and hero’s in tact… coupled with the black face for the “Obama” effect. The party wants to have a “look”of diversity. But that is only to draw more black votes. But the flip side of it is that they are so hardened from the past 16 years of momentum from Clinton hating and Bush loving years that they can’t shake themselves hard enough to modify any of the hard core ideologies.
One only needs to see how some of these governors are refusing the 2% portion of the stimulus package that deal with extending unemployment benefits. They are not enraged at CEOs taking billions, but damn those poor Americans who are losing jobs can’t get a cent extra of unemployment if they can’t get a job quick enough.
But I digress. Steele learned once again that he had to get back into his place as he incurred the wrath of the real head of the Republican Party Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh, the racist evangelical hate mongering drug abusing obese last bastion of white supremacy talking radio head has been making noise most notably post election. He spoke at a venue over the weekend, and when Steele was questioned by D.L. Hugely about Limbaugh, said in so many words that Rush is an “entertainer” and also that his anti-Obama rhetoric was “incendiary” and “ugly.” Some of us raised an eyebrow by these sentiments. “Go ahead, “Man of Steele” break it down.” But that was short lived.
After Limbaugh let Steele know that that the house he lives in with the republican party is not his, and that he could easily be put back into the fields Steele backed up quicker than Billy Graham resigned as Presidential Pastor after the election and actually called Rush to apologize for offending massa. This was his public statement:
“My intent was not to go after Rush — I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh. I went back at that tape and I realized words that I said weren’t what I was thinking. It was one of those things where I thinking I was saying one thing, and it came out differently. What I was trying to say was a lot of people… want to make Rush the scapegoat, the bogeyman, and he’s not.”
In the immortal words of Lil John… “WHAT?” Those statements are not an interpretation, they are a cowardly retreat! Rush and his supporters, “the real brain and energy of the GOP” gangstered your ass into your proper place… which is to carry their water!
My message to Mr. Steele is this… “Man if you’re going to carry the water, carry the damn water. Stop trying to placate to the black community and act like you are down or something. It’s bad enough you don’t know what a job is and most every time you get on TV you make a fool of yourself. We don’t want you and are not impressed with your position. All of this talk of inclusiveness and hip hop are Ludacris ludicrous! You picked a side so just stay there. And try having a candid conversation with J. C. Watts and he will tell you that to be a conservative is one thing… a perfectly acceptable brand of politics to hold to. But the conservative views of your party are seeped in a muck of racism, classism, hatred, and a totally un-American un-inclusive set of ideologies. Watts knows this first hand by how he was treated and that is why he no longer holds office. Until you can man up and deal with that squarely, we have neither the time nor tolerance to consider you seriously. ”
By the way… Rush just called. He needs a shine. “So get your shine box!”
