HNIC of the RNC
Listen up, Steele. I'm mad at you, man. All my homies at the yuppie coffee shop were bragging on you. They said you showed up on that foul-mouth H.L. Hughleys' show and showed out-- you called talk radio host Rush Limbaugh out as nothing but an entertainer but an entertainer who is, nonetheless, "incendiary" and "ugly," meaning he's nothing but a fat, drug-addicted, government-hating-race- baiting-right-wing Rick Warren-loving-Joe Six Pack-manipulating, crazy mother ("Shut your mouth!" Talking bout druggie Limbaugh!) . Otherwise, he's a nice guy.
The brothas at the coffee shop said you nailed it, speaking truth to power, no matter how big, figuratively and literally, at least in the case of Limbaugh. The Week.Com laid it down:
"Michael Steele did Democrats a huge favor, said Steve Benen in The Washington Monthly. By saying that “Rush Limbaugh’s schtick is both ‘incendiary’ and ‘ugly,’” (watch the CNN video), Steele drove a wedge between the GOP leadership and its Limbaugh-loving base. The offense “baited” Limbaugh into launching an on-air tirade against Steele, which only made the spotlight on the feud brighter."
I said to myself, "I don't often agree with Michelle Backman, that wacky representative from Minnesota, but Michael Steele-- YOU BE THE MAN!"
Now, I just read online where you apologized. Politico and Political Machine reported today that you caved in, that you delivered Limbaugh "your rear end." Political Machine put it this way:
"Two days after calling Rush Limbaugh a mere "entertainer" with an "incendiary" talk show, Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele apologized and acknowledged the radio commentator as a "national conservative leader...I respect Rush Limbaugh, he is a national conservative leader, and in no way do I want to diminish his voice," Steele said in a statement late Monday...I'm sure that he and I will agree most of the time, but will probably disagree some as well, which is fine."
In other words, after speaking truth to power, you switched and apologized to that same power (Rush Limbaugh and, by extension, the right-wing of the Republican Pary). In other words, after delivering your rear end, you got down on bended knees in a praying position and asked the Lawd to forgive for going back on your words, on your truth, and then stuck a knife into your own soul! This to the man whose son died on the cross for you! Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
You hypocritical fake black man! You middle-aged manchild! You--you---you---"Negro!" Have you lost your mind? Have you been away from the central city, from regular black folk and your black relatives so long that you've lost your mother wit? Have you forgotten that, if you're going to sell out to powerful white people, sell out all the way? Don't you understand you should be bowing at the feet of the Republican base 24/7 like Bobby Jindal, a guy who seems to have lost his mother wit and speaking voice too?
And don't you realize that if you're going to go against powerful white people, you got to go all the way? You got to do a total beat-down of druggie Limbaugh and then make another round of talk-shows not only backing up your assertions but also lay out a new direction for your sorry Republican Party?
And don't you know that, just as Limbaugh and fellow talk radio friends are sending out the KKK, or some equivalent, to silence you, you have to steal the headlines again, denouncing the Republican Party as backward and switch to the democratic party, pledging your undying love to golden boy President Obama, his stimulus plan and change even a spook who sits by the door can believe in? That's how a playa plays wealthy white playas that don't give a damn about black and regular folk in this country-- with some mojo,with John The Conquer Root, and with some motherwit that the folk back home best understand, know what I'm saying?
Steele: You let a brotha down. You let yourself get chumped by chumps who aren't even that smart. But here's what you do: take a break and go home-- no, not back to your fancy slave quarters in the suburbs. Go back to your real home, DOWN South where all your folk speak ebonics. Get one of the older women in the know to sprinkle some angel dust on you, give you the Conquer root and, as Muddy Water loved to say, get you a"mojo hand."
It might not be too late. Even a Negro Republican sellout deserves a second chance.
