Michael Steele Selected As RNC Chairman

After a day-long process of close votes, Michael Steele, former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, has won the position of Party Chairman of the National Republican Committee. Steele is also the first African American to serve in that position.

On accepting the Chair, Steele said, “This is awesome. I accept and appreciate all of you for the opportunity to serve as the next national chairman of our very proud, our very strong, and our very, very hard working Republican National Committee.”

Steele Wins RNC Chairmanship

I welcome Mr. Steele to the party Chair and hope his efforts to return our party to solid conservative footing will be successful.

I also hope that he will make a strong effort to bring other Blacks home to the party that has actually stood with them more against racism and fought Democrats for decades for their Civil Rights.

The Myth of the Racist Republicans

Congratulations on winning the Chair, Mr. Steele. Now, let’s get busy on setting both the party and America on the right track again.

As expected, my email inbox is not deluged with Breaking News Alerts of this “Historic Selection.”

Michael Steele Biography

Yup yup yup. Repubs are ALL racist. Wonder how many times Mr. Steele has been called Uncle Tom or worse.

Although exaggerated, by Steele's own account, he is the one who had Oreo cookies thrown at him by Democrats a couple years ago.

I think he has also been unfairly criticized by some conservatives, maybe the Evangelical or far Right Conservatives.

Michael Steele to his Conservative Critics

Well it is about time. We Republicans are women, men, black, white, hispanic, asian and gay etc. Yes that's right. We are a conservative base who want to work together, for the betterment of our country and for our generations to come.

This is indeed the dream of Martin Luther King Jr, Republican. To be equal.

Now if we can just get the Democratic Party to cross the isle and truely be bipartison and to work with us towards the same goal.

What, now we go and find our own "magic Negro"?

This is a very, very sad day for America. The election of Steele proves that the Republican party will not go in the direction they need to for the sake of our country. They can expect to be in the minority for quite some time to come.

Are you a true conservative or just a kool aid drinker? If you are a true conservative then you would listen to what this other true conservative has to say about him.

Steve Deace is so right about him.

He's a RINO. On that we can be clear. This proves that the Republican Party's move to the Left might be a permanent legacy of the Bush years.

Sorry, Greg, but I am as conservative as they come. Michel Steele is no more a RINO than who we had last, that helped us lose all the elections.

Nor is Michael a "Magic Negro" as in B HO, who was selected solely due to race, hence the moniker.

Personally, I was leaning towards Ken Blackwell but he dropped out.

I liked his congratulating the Hose GOP yesterday on standing firm against the Porkulus Bill, intimating that "bi-partisnship is over rated."

But, if that doesn't make me a "True conservative" in your eyes, tough shit, bro. Maybe you and the rest of your "true conservatives" can continue staying home on election day and we can see a larger Democrat majority and 4 more years of homey the clown.

Thank you "true conservatives" for the 4 we got now!
