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 America???

What Oliver Said:

I love Steele trying to compare himself to President Obama, when in fact Steele isn’t even a grub on the other side of the President’s shoe. And then he plays the race card, while he’s the head of a party packed to the gills with racist detractors of the President. Such is the life of the black Republican: Nobody actually likes you.

Embattled Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said he won’t resign despite calls for him to step down amid reports of the group’s excessive spending, adding that he and other African-American leaders such as President Obama have a slimmer margin of error because of their race.

‘The honest answer is, ‘yes,” he said on ‘Good Morning America’ today. ‘Barack Obama has a slimmer margin. A lot of folks do. It’s a different role for me to play and others to play and that’s just the reality of it. But you just take that as a part of the nature of it.’

As previously noted: Michael Steele is the reality of the affirmative action hire conservatives always push. Chosen solely based on his pigment, he’s not actually qualified for the position.

Agreed — Michael Steele is giving affirmative action a bad name, yo!
