Michael Steele Is A Sniveling Coward

This, shamefully, didn’t take long. Just two days after ostensibly speaking his true mind, dismissing the bloviating drug addict Rush Limbaugh as “an entertainer,” who is “incendiary” and “ugly,” RNC Chairman Michael Steele has issued an out-and-out apology to Rush and his hurt feelings.

From The Politico:

“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”

Steele’s original remarks with CNN’s D.L. Hughley:

Oh, and on a sort of related note, someone named JP Fellows, the author of Unrelated Nonsense, doesn’t like the use of bloviating, because it’s “horrific slang,” and has no place in proper grammar.

I could give a fuck.

  1. First of all, any Dem would have responded the same way as Steele did. They would have disagreed with anyone who said that their party is headed by a radio talk show host, and they would have disagreed with any interviewer who then implied that the whole thing was a dismissal of, or attack on, the talk show host in question. Put Sean Hanity in the place of D.L. Hughley (apparently the G is not silent… smart), Al Franken in the place of Rush, and DNC Chairman Tim Kaine in the place of Michael Steele and you would have an identical result. Second of all, I pretty sure JP Fellows is The Beave.

  2. Er, Steele called Rush’s tactics “ugly” and “incendiary.” Two days later he says he wasn’t out for Rush and that he was sorry for those remarks for being “inarticulate.” Whatever strange power Rush has over the GOP is beyond me. The guy’s policy ideas are what has led to the party’s current state, and the continuation of those policies will only result in more of the same. Also, your counterexample is flawed. This would be like Hannity claiming that Rachel Maddow is the de facto leader of the Democratic Party, which would be stupid. Tim Kaine would obviously object and say that, while Ms. Maddow is an intelligent and important member of his community, she does not lead the party. However, Tim Kaine wouldn’t apologize two days later for saying that, because that would be stupid. Also, Al Franken will likely be the next Senator of Minnesota…

  3. This is a great example of Steele getting the party more involved in “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.” Lets be honest, it is working better than you would have expected.

  4. Rush is in charge. I couldn’t be happier. He is a worthy adversary and he brain washed my father.
