Steele Kisses the Hand that Feeds Him

March 3, 2009

Whose afraid of Rush Limbaugh? Apparently the entire membership of the RNC. The latest drama, the de facto leader of the part, Michael Steele, Chairman of the RNC has fallen to the Dragon called Rush.

Last weekend, in what one must now think was a statement given under the inducement of sodium-pentathol.  In an interview on the DL Hughley show aired Saturday night Steele spoke the truth:

“Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh — his whole thing is entertainment. He has this incendiary — yes, it’s ugly.”

However, it appears that Mr. Steele’s huddled masses feel he has gone to far off their reservation. The Politico’s Mike Allen quotes Steele:

“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”

People, let’s be frank. Mr. Steele has just been P-U-N-K-E-D!

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but when GW was still in the White House did not Republicans and Democrats alike understand Howard Dean, the then Chairman of the DNC, to be the leader of the Democratic Party? Why is Michael Steele apologizing for stating the obvious. He is the Chairman of his Party, and needs not apologize. Unless he has finally figured out that he is a meer figure head, a prop, a quid pro quo for Republicans to counter the Nations firt African-American President. Let’s be clear here, Steele will never be the leader of the GOP as long as the Limbaughs, Coulters, and Savages are the trumpeters of Republican ideology. He will be relegated to lap dog status as long as he cannot hold to the certitude of his convictions. Which he will not be able to do. Steele is a moderate republican voice with a party which is based with extreme right-wing members, and unfortunately Rush is their poster-boy.

So Mr. Steele, you are at a moment of reckoning. Will you be the director of the choir or one of its soloists. Right now your the latter, and Rush is Leopold.
