First he gets mocked by our own Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann.
"Michael Steele! You be da man! You be da man," she said.
Awesome...simply awesome Congresswoman Bachmann.
Then, RNC Chair Michael Steele gets his ass handed to him by Rush Limbaugh and then apologizes to Rush!
The racial overtones here are disturbing. It feels like the national Republican party is trying to harness the same aura of Barack Obama.
Congresswoman Bachmann's statement is a more subtle form of racism. It feeds the stereotype of an uneducated African American. These subtle forms of racism are often more damaging then the attack by Rush Limbaugh.
Neither are acceptable and should be met with outrage.
