OK. Now Michael Steele Is Just Messing With My Mind. (O Rly?)

First he said he would fight anyone who would try to limit his powers as RNC chairman. Then The Washington Times reported that he was cool with the opposition yanking the purse strings. Now he’s all Hi-C rapping “I’m Not Your Puppet.”

O Rly? You have balls now? I thought Rush Limbaugh sauted your balls and served them with a fine Chianti and a side of asparagus. Did someone loan you a pair? And if so, when JC Watts asks for his cajones back won’t you just bend over and fold again?

But I’m game. Let’s entertain your latest foray into Big Bad Brown mode. Wow me and the “O RLY” owl. Here we are now. Entertain us!

More after the jump.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele told FOX News that part of his job is to “manage the money” and suggested that if committee members strip him of that authority he’ll step aside.

“They can contemplate all they want to, but the reality is if they want a figurehead chairman you can have a figurehead chairman, but it won’t be Michael Steele,” he said.

Steele aides insist the chairman was not threatening to quit, but merely to fight over retaining his authority. But his comments reflect the persistent tension within the Republican National Committee over his chairmanship. (FOX News)

One minute he’s claiming he has the juice. The next minute he is singing castrato. Now he is threatening to quit (but not really) if they limit his financial powers. C’mon Uncle Mike, what is going on? Was it the rap music? Was it the whole Rush Limbaugh thing? Or the Mitt Romney thing? Or the fact that you just won’t shut the hell up? Seriously. You suffer from the world’s worst case of word vomit.

Or is this because even the folks who supported you are starting to give you a huge dose of the side-eye?

Steele, who delivered a speech Tuesday on the future of the GOP, said some of the animosity is from people in the party who supported other candidates for chairman. But some of his critics are former allies.

“Some of them were supposedly friends that were in some cases, when I was a young state party chairman, were mentors to me and it’s kind of eerie to see them standing on their knives bared,”he said.

The folks at Gawker, of course, are having a high chortling field day with the Not-So-Man of Steele.

Some members of the RNC are concerned about handing over the party’s purse strings to an obviously incompetent hip-hop enthusiast whom they only hired to be a black Republican on TV, so a move is afoot to restrict Steele’s ability to spend money. The state parties are scheduled to vote on it tomorrow, and Steele got all “I Will Survive” and told Fox today that “they can contemplate all they want to, but the reality is if they want a figurehead chairman you can have a figurehead chairman, but it won’t be Michael Steele.” Um, they actually did want a figurehead chairman. So sorry for the misunderstanding, Mike. We’re sure they’ll be a great reference and wish you luck in all your future endeavors.

  1. I need to stock up on popcorn because this psychodrama is getting good. The RNC chose Steele in order to convince minorities that the GOP did have a "big tent" and now they are Jim Crowing his ass right out the door.You could not write this shit.

  2. When the dust all settles…. after they have squeezed him out of the chairmanship….How much ya wanna bet he’ll be singing this song? :"We’ve come to a mutual agreement that it is best for the RNC for me to move forward the agenda of the Republican party in a different capacity….blah…blah..blah… The pary continues to be a big tent and reaches out to embrace….blah, blah, blah…..Complete confidence in …..blah blah…blah…. Admire Rush Limbaugh, Newt and ….blah, blah, blah.Translation: "Please let me stay in da house…. they’ll hurt me in the field."

  3. Mike, you should quit the GOP and become a Democrat. You could be governor, senator, or even a supreme court justice. Think about it. We’ll cut a nice deal for you. Call us back by Friday. It’s the only way to save yourself. Resistance is futile.

  4. I want this dumbass dead. Yeah, I said it. Maybe one of those loonies at the NRA Convention will bring him back to earth in the split second before he leaves it…

  5. Yeah him and Colin need to cross over. I’m still trying to figure out why Colin Powell still wants to chain himself to the train wreck that is the GOP. …They could at least become independent, if need be, cause I know Steel is not going to be welcomed with open arms after the mockery he’s made of himself.

  6. Does anybody remember the last chairman of the RNC?? Mike made us sit up and take notice.

  7. Michael Steele is pathetic. I, for the life of me, can’t understand why he would want to be the leader of a party that has declared itself Racist at this point. I can’t even conceive of him going into the states to talk with the base of this party. he just continues to make himself look like a fool. Before this is all over he is just going to be another Alan Keyes….who has lost all sense of pride.

  8. Actually, nobody is going to purge Michael Steele.Steele has been doing some good things over at what we Republicans like to call the Ass Clown RNC. He has purged a lot of the K Street deadweight that Bush had put in that were responsible for a lot of our losses out in the Purple districts and he’s put in some good people. There was a lot of grumbling about the Mitt Romney remarks, but that’s just Steele shooting his mouth off and stating what was a truth: a lot of Evangelicals had problems with Mitt’s mormonism. Most folks, however, had problems with Mitt because he’s such a Brylcreemed Phony who belongs on a used car lot. As a salesman. If Mitt Romney were the kind of candidate who could beat, you know, Hitler for example, he wouldn’t have lost the Republican Primary to a walking dead man. But feelings are raw in Mittens Land and Steele has to cater to Mittens because of all the Bush Pioneer money that Mittens has. MIttens is a schmuck whose ego can’t stand that this housewife from Alaska outdraws him, like, five to one. Steele and other Republicans know this. So does Mittens, which is why his people on the McCain campaign were dumping all over the poor girl towards the end last year. Much of the crap you hear about Mike Steele is coming from Camp Mittens and Camp Mittens’ Fragile Ego.But Steele didn’t actually want to come out and say that. He also couldn’t come out and endorse the moderate Charlie Crist for the Florida Senate seat, if only because Steele has to mollify conservatives who back the hapless, yet talented, Marco Rubio in that state’s Senate Primary. But Mike and Sarah Palin make a great pair, so you’ll be seeing more of those two together on the same podium-the two apparently get along real well and Steele is said to be a closet Palin supporter.Steele is going to do fine. He is getting out to the Districts and setting us up for a reasonably good shot at picking up some Senate seats and doing reasonably well in 2010, as the costs of Obama’s spending ambitions begin to sink in to the electorate. He may not be the next Ray Bliss (you can google Ray, he’s the Legend who set the table for Nixon’s 1968 triumph and built the Party up from the Goldwater disaster in 1964), but he’s all we’ve got.

  9. @ section9Fascinating! An EVIL Mittens conspiracy plot! Now that I wouldn’t be surprised by considering My Fair Mittens is determined to cram himself down the electorate’s throats until we all choke to death on him.But Steele has got to work on the word vomit problem. When he was saying the era of Republican apologizing was over I wondered if he was projecting upon the Party what he really meant to say for himself.

  10. MICHAEL STEELE told every RACIST in AMERICA to come after the PRESIDENT and his FAMILY! this black man has decided to take side’s with RACIST WHITE AMERICA, he included the PRESIDENT’S FAMILY in his speech! he has put their life in more danger than it was before! I listened to every word that he said, MICHAEL STELLE is way over the top, he is willing to do whatever it take’s to keep that PITIFUL POSITION! how can any BLACK MAN in his right mind say the thing’s he said and get away with it! this was as good as the RACIST wanted, BLACK ON BLACK ATTACK! I am so ashamed of this BLACK MAN!

  11. This is to SECTION 9, first let me say, SARAH PALIN will never be PRESIDENT or VICE PRESIDENT! she is a RACIST that spew’s hatred amongst GOD’S PEOPLE, the CONSERVATIVE’S love her because they love to hear her PERSECUTE the PRESIDENT! they pretend to be CHRISTIAN’S, but, yet they have no problem with people going HUNGRY in AMERICA, and if the PRESIDENT attempt’s to do anything to help the needy they call it SOCIALISM! so tell me what sound minded minority will ever VOTE for a REPUBLICAN to sit in the WHITE HOUSE!
