    Michael Steele Running on ‘Don’t Fire the Black Man’ Platform




    Surprising many political observers and even his own allies, RNC chairman Michael Steele announced in a private conference call and via e-mail last night that he would run for another term. In his statement, Steele admitted that his first go-around wasn't exactly flawless.

    "I come to my bosses with a record that only you can judge, based upon directions you made clear to me from the very beginning. Yes, I have stumbled along the way, but have always accounted to you for such shortcomings. No excuses."

    Well, except for when Steele claimed the RNC was being criticized "because a black man is chairman." But those days of playing the race card are over! Now is the time to judge Steele on his record alone.

    Jim Bopp, a Republican National Committee member from Indiana, told The Washington Times that Mr. Steele announced his decision in a conference call with supporters and officials of the 168-member RNC on Monday evening.

    Mr. Steele ended the 40-minute call by playing what Mr. Bopp described as the "race card."

    "Who you elect as our next Chairman will speak volumes about our willingness to truly be the party of Lincoln," Mr. Steele said.

    Didn't electing Michael Steele the first time demonstrate that the GOP was the party of Lincoln? We have a feeling that, to many members of the RNC, giving him a second term as chairman after he left the RNC over $20 million in debt and failed to reach fund-raising goals would only prove that they're the party of affirmative action.
     
  2. You are clearly a racist. It's obvious that this rant is purely about having a black man in a position of power...

     
  3. Hello

    Hello

    Michael Steele is the poster child for whats wrong with affirmative action. The GOP simply tried to stick a black man up there to get some of the black vote, even though he was grossly unqualified. Then upon being outed for being a total screwup play the race card, to try to hold onto your job.

    I like how he says: "Yes, I have stumbled along the way, but have always accounted to you for such shortcomings. No excuses." As if that is supposed to make up for the fact that he is a total fuck up, only a politician would say something like this, cause if he was in the private sector he would have been out on his ass already.
     
  4. So it's true what Jon Stewart observed. Michael Steele really is a muppet:

  5. I just can't believe the blatant racism. What is it about a black man in a position of power that you guys just can't stand?? When will this racism ever end??

     
  6. Hello, how do you like them obfuscating apples? And no, phenomena was not really being ironic. Irony requires nuance. He is much more of a blunt force, and obfuscation can be achieved quite nicely with mere blunting. That's why obfuscation and obtuseness often go so well together. Phenomena couldn't identify irony in a lineup.
     
  7. You guys are just a bunch of ignorant racist red necks. This is all clearly about a black man being in a position of power.

    Obviously.
     
  9. Does Michael Steele need a bailout?
     
  10. I thought the Stewart Muppet skit with the muppet talking Negro was racist. Could he had done the same with a muppet Obama?
