As most of you know by now, the Republican Party held its vote and has elected a new party chairman. Michael Steele is out, and Reince Priebus (Think Progress analysis) is in. Here’s a pronunciation guide to the new chair: Rance PREE-bus. It sounds a bit like the name of a Roman criminal forced into […]

Gotta love these Black Republicans. They seriously will do anything for money and approval. God knows, I’m delighted that Michael Steele is running again for RNC Chair. The longer he’s there, the easier it is to make fun of him and the Republican approach to diversity in the ranks in general. That said, Fox News […]

from Black Politics on the Web Steele on thin ice at helm of Republican Party By The Admin on November 26, 2010 A significant bloc of Republican National Committee members wants embattled chairman Michael Steele to step aside, but the rank and file have failed to settle on a clear alternative, according to Associated Press […]

I wish I could say I was shocked. I’ll admit I did vomit a little in my mouth when I saw this over at FITSNews via Elon James White’s Facebook page. Then my eyes crossed and I passed out from sheer outrage. I’m ok now though and am channeling my uh, concern into this here […]

  Courtesy of the late Steve Gilliard.  He warned us about Michael Steele when he photoshopped this. Since when haven’t the Rethugs called for this man to step down.  And after he shot off his yap, too. Don’t he know if you’re in the GOBP, YOU CAN’T DO THAT?  Oh, well, if Chris Cilizza is […]

This is a bit like shooting a special needs fish in a barrel, but please enjoy this clip of Michael Steele dancing his butt off to spin the defeat of GOP party establishment candidates at the hands of Tea Party-backed candidates.

The GOP is throwing spaghetti at the wall to see if one of their ridiculous objections to the rather moderate, careful Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court. They made a major misstep in criticizing her admiration of Thurgood Marshall. A misstep for which we will make them pay, hopefully, in the continuing decline of […]

Steele answering questions directly and honestly? He must be getting ready to resign… From the Chicago Sun-Times: Why should an African-American vote Republican? “You really don’t have a reason to, to be honest — we haven’t done a very good job of really giving you one. True? True,” Republican National Chairman Michael Steele told 200 […]

It’s rare these days when both left and right, donkey and elephant, blue and red can agree on one person. That’s the kind of national treasure and stalwart heroine of justice that Dr. Dorothy Height was. The Prez called her the “Godmother of the Civil Rights Movement” on the WhiteHouse Blog: The President joined the […]

Oliver WIllis took the words right out of my mouth. Michael Steele hid behind his color on Good Morning America this am in response to the allegations of out of control spending and downright incompetence at the Republican National Committee. My question for Steele — I thought the RNC was color-blind! Isn’t this a post-racial […]

Of course, Michael Steele is backing away from this bad news. But the fact remains that an internal RNC powerpoint deck left lying around at a swanky hotel showing how the Republican National Committee plans to use right wing extremist talk  that spreads lies, hatred and fear has been uncovered. Steele can duck and cover […]

Um, I hate to say it, but this is actually really well-done. Strikes all the right notes. Because it’s true: the Republican party historically was the liberal, black-people loving, slave freeing party. Until it all went so terribly wrong. My own grandfather was a proud Republican who finally switched parties in the 1960s after having […]
