I'm gonna go ahead and say that Rush Limbaugh was right when he blasted Michael Steele For saying what he said on D.L. Hugley's show on CNN.
What, you're gonna agree with that racist pig Rush Limpballs?!! Say it ain't so RiPPa; tell me you ain't sellin out on us dawg!!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, RiPPa hasn't sold out nor will he ever sellout. Well, that's not for free at least, and none of you are paying me. Besides, I'm the De-facto Negro leader around these-a-here blog parts.
But what he said about the brother was wrong RiPPa.
Ok well, yeah, he did kinda call him out and told him to play his position. Uh huh, he did kinda make the Chairman of the RNC sound like the resident shoe shine boy. That he did, and yes it was insulting. But alas, all is fair in love, war and politics, unless you start drawing pictures of monkeys getting shot by cops in the newspaper. Besides, Steele with his uppity ass deserved to be blasted for assuming that Chuck D. of the rap group Public Enemy (who was also on the show) was from the projects. How you gonna bring your party back hip hop style when you insult one of the fathers of conscious hip hop, and voices of Black political activism?
Now I'm not a Republican, nor do I have a vested interest in the success of the republican party. But I was a little bit disappointed by Michael "Who's The Boss" Steele in his quick apology to Limbaugh. Yeah, it only took him 51 minutes after he received that steel toe boot to the balls from Rush, to get on his knees in a "I's sorry massa" kinda way with his apology. Yeah, that kinda bothered me. Why? Because it makes us Black people look bad. But then after I read this article over at Politico, I could understand Steele's brand of republican fellatio.
"Steele does not have a chief of staff, a political director, a finance director or a communications director. Last week, one of the two men sharing the job of interim finance director was forced to resign. For now, “the fourth floor,” as the RNC’s executive suite is known, is being run by a pair of consultants. “There’s frustration that there’s no discipline, no planning,” said a well-known Republican consultant. “He’s risking being overexposed by accepting every interview, which makes gaffes more likely.” " - source: politico.com
(If you click the link above you can read the entire story; a lot of people are not happy with him)
So yeah, that's why Steele was quick to slob the Limbaugh knob. Fact of the matter is: his ass hasn't been doing his job. Yup, and Rush in his rebuttal to him, pretty much exposed his ass. That's another reason or another way Steele makes us Black people look bad. How you gonna talk smack and be on TV when you sleeping on the job Michael Steele?
It's bad enough that people of color, particularly Black folks are perceived as lazy, unorganized, and intellectually inferior to non-minorities. Yup, that's bad enough. And here is Steele forgetting his color. I'm guessing he took that Michele Bachman, "You Da Man" line a bit too far. I'm thinking he's let it go to his head. I'm guessing he thought he could run around talking shit, and forgot that "them white folks" in the party didn't give him the keys to the city that is conservatism.
He obviously has forgotten that even with Affirmative Action, Negroes still have to run faster, jump higher and out perform pretty much anyone to get the pat on the back. It's bad enough that he's being questioned for "allegedly" donating other people's campaign money to his sister's business a few years ago. Even worse, it's bad enough that he's Mike Tyson's ex brother-in-law; yeah, that one messed me up too when I found out. Did he think that "them people" were just gonna open their arms up to him, and he has yet to offer a clear cut strategy as to how he's going to revive a party that has all but lost it's way?
Instead, he want's to beat his chest and proclaim himself to be the leader of the party. The hell is wrong with that Negro? Leaders lead by example fool! Get on your job. Hell, Benson didn't even do that in the governors mansion. Instead, unlike Michael Steele, Benson DuBois knew his role. And that my friend, is the reason why I say Rush was right. Did Steele think all those rednecks were gonna give him love like they did Mandingo with a big penis fresh off the slave ship?
Hopefully, Steele gets the message and gets to work. His success as chairman may not be as important as Barack Obama's economic policy is to the country. I'm guessing it is probably as important to republicans for their future return to prominence. But in closing, as a Black man, its more important to us, that he not look like an ass and make us look bad the way he has in such a short time. For his sake, I hope he understands that even the House Negroes in Massa Charlie's big house got their ass whipped on occasion.
