That commie rag, The New York Times, ran a great piece about Republican National Committee chairman and epic fail machine Michael Steele yesterday. Turns out that he’s not only inept as a politician!
He worked his way through law school at night and won a job at a top firm, but he failed the Maryland bar exam because, he says, he took it on a whim.
Because nobody expects you to take the bar after you graduate from law school; it was just a whim, baby! Like taking a trip to Europe or getting a BLT instead of a turkey sandwich!
He tried the priesthood but left as a novice. Later he practiced law for seven years in Washington (after passing the Pennsylvania state bar, he said), then started a consulting firm that made so little money that he almost lost his home…Mr. Steele [also] ran for the Senate [in Maryland] in 2006…[and] lost by almost 10 points, attracting only a quarter of the black vote.
Quite a resumé, eh? It’s no wonder he’s leading a major political party in these most troubled of times!
Seriously, though, I have the distinct impression that the GOP elected this guy because they thought he would lend credibility to their “Big Tent” claim, and because they didn’t really think he could do too much to hurt them. Little did they know the hyper-successful ultra-failure they were contracting!
Most chairmen wave the party flag; Mr. Steele smiles and shreds it. A man of constantly colliding analogies, he compares Republicans to drunks in need of a 12-step program and to the mentally ill. He has insulted Rush Limbaugh and moderate Republican senators alike, and he has promised a “hip-hop makeover” that would attract even “one-armed midgets” to his party.
You’d think the GOP would have learned their lesson, after turning to another epic failure to lead them for the last 8 years. How’d that work out again?
