The Incredible Shrinking Michael Steele Rides Again

Oh, Uncle Mike. Why do you keep using your mouth to form words? Can’t you just use it to eat and breathe? Why must you insist on saying INSANE shizz all the time? You make it so hard for me to love you. And I’m a lover. I just want good things for you. For everyone. So why can’t you pick a team and stick with it? You stand up to Rush. You bend over for Rush. You say you’re going to fight for your leadership and then you capitulate. I need a man I can depend on!

Like with Judge Sonia Sotomayor. First you were all, folks need to stop with the “rammin’ and the jammin” on Sotomayor. Yeah, the phrasing was mad awkward, yo. But I’ve become used to you using the most outdated, fresh, dope, chill slang around town. Still I thought you were trying to be the voice of REASON. The calm in the ignorant-ass storm.

Alas, I spoke too soon.

More after the jump.

From Steele’s radio show (via ThinkProgress):

STEELE: And apparently, the comments that she made that have been played up about, you know, the Latina woman being a better judge than the white male is something that she has said on numerous occasions. So this was not just the one and only time it was said. They’ve now found other evidences and other speeches, Trip, that she has made mention of this, this fact that her ethnicity, that her cultural background puts her in a different position as a judge to judge your case.

TRIP: Yep.

STEELE: And God help you if you’re a white male coming before her bench. (Emphasis ThinkProgress)

Now how am I suppose to respond to that, Uncle Mike? What the hell? How is this supposed to play in hip hop urban to suburban settings? Is this the dope, fresh, chill thing to do? One minute you’re all “Bonita Applebaum, you gotta put me on” and the next thing you’re all “New Kids On the Block had a bunch of hits, Chinese food makes me sick.” I’m positively confused. What’s next? “Ninja Rap?” “The Adams Family” jam? How low can we go here?

Get it together, Uncle Mike or you’re totally uninvited to the family picnic.

    Somebody should do a parody called: Mike the Token Negro. I wonder if he’ll deem it as funny as Barack the Magic Negro. Let’s all pray for Mike.

    Yep, he needs to sit down somewhere and be quiet! He keeps salting his foot and sticking it in his mouth. And he has a tenuous grasp of the truth too. "God help you if you’re a white male coming before her bench" my foot.

    okaaay. i guess the second half of my post didn’t go through. Let’s try this again"And God help you if you’re a white male coming before her bench." There’s something deliciously naughty about that…

    He really needs to stop. He’s becoming Example #1 as to why Black folk look side eye towards Black Republicans.
