8. There's nothing wrong with being derivative,
as a Hollywood screenwriter once said in a meeting, and now the Republicans have their very own Black Guy.

Steele is a perfect dickwad, the exact tool I want to be leading the R. Party.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery, they say, and so here we have the losers doing their best to pretend they're us.

This is really funny.........................

20. Yeah, there's that........
I recall his Senate bid in Maryland. I can't recall the specifics, but, towards the end of the campaign, Steele did something that was really offensive - something like lining up black people who didn't have a clue as to what they were being paid for to turn out and protest at his Democratic opponent's rallies.

Or something like that. It backfired terribly on Steele.

He really is thick.

29. You mean this??
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_S._Steele#2006_cam...

Steele lost the general election to Cardin on November 7, 2006, getting 44% of the vote to Cardin's 55%. The Washington Post reported that on election day the Steele campaign arranged for buses of low income people from Philadelphia to distribute fliers at polls. Some claim the flyers had incorrect information, including an implication that Michael Steele was a Democrat and that he was endorsed by prominent black leaders who had not, in fact, endorsed him

And he still lost by 11%.

39. they did that same shit in 02 when he was running with Erhlich
old-fashioned GOP dirty tricks...the Ehrlich campaign in 02 was setting all-time lows with underhanded or subversive strategies...

there must be a playbook somewhere...our new mayor (RW free-market banker fatcat) here came under fire during the race for having some flyers printed up with him and obama like they were buddies or some shit and had them distributed in black communities (nevermind the fact that our mayor said for the record numerous times that he would never vote obama)...and like Ehrlich/Steele, when called out on it, they always have that patent excuse of "I never knew that was going on! I certainly cannot control every single campaign coordinator, worker and volunteer..."

31. 2nd steal...
I think that they chose Palin because they needed to trump the "first possible Black President" by having the first female Vice. They had to make it look like they were open minded. Then they had their scape goat if they lost. Why wouldn't they have chosen that lady from Minnesota who was such a big mouth, but actually was a name and had some experience? Well, they didn't want to ruin her Career if the plan backfired.

42. Welcome to DU, Beavker.......
I agree.

Their sad, sorry plots keep blowing up in their collective fat, white, male faces, and they just don't get it. They seem to understand style, sort of, in a pathetic sort of way, but they truly lack all substance.

I mean, imagine right now - President McPOW? Vice President Palin?

Rangel responded "He sure puts to rest that myth of white superiority"

26. Win back the northeast!!
:rofl: :rofl:

I think only ONE county in all of New England voted for McCain, and that was the ass-backwards Piscataquis County here in Maine.

Yes, from Wikipedia: "In 2008, Piscataquis was the only county in New England to vote for John McCain, by a 3.8% margin over Barack Obama, with Obama winning the Pine Tree State by 17.5% over McCain." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piscataquis_County )

Win back the northeast...good frigging luck with that.

The story was exaggerated so much that in the end, those oreos were whipping past his head at bullet-like speeds and he had to take cover.

We're not starting off on the right foot for 2012 with this pro-affirmative action, anti-Second Amendment politician as our choice to lead the RNC.

Steele is, in the words of Tony Soprano, an affirmative action cocksucker.
