In another excellent job of reporting by Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller, the RNC self-proclaimed hip-hop, honest-Injun chairman, Michael Steele, plays the tired old race card against his critics. Apparently spending nearly $110 million in little over a year merits no criticism unless the chairman who spends that obscene amount of money happens to be of a darker hue. Poor Mr. Steele has he has less “margin for error” because he has darker pigmentation in his skin. This is nuts. It’s outrageous. He then says that the same holds true for Barack Obama — that his margin for error is less because he is black.
Well, no. If anything, both Steele and especially Obama are given far more leeway because they are black than they would otherwise get. Chris Matthews wouldn’t feel chill bumps on his leg if Obama were white. And Michael Steele is the one who always plays up his own race, because he knows it is an advantage to him. This is race-hustling by Steele, pure and simple. It is despicable. And it is one more reason why this spendthrift, self-indulgent, charlatan should not be chairman of the RNC, at least not by standards that would usually, objectively, adhere to the position.
There: I just criticized Michael Steele. And I dare him to call me a racist.
UPDATE: I also guarantee I could do a better job as chairman than Steele could. Better results, for a lower salary. Guaranteed. At a younger age, I did politics. It’s not rocket science.
