Michael Steele Plays the Race Card, Other RNC Members Expected to Comment as Soon as They Take Out the Ball Gags

Somehow I think the “race card” thing isn’t going to be as effective coming from a black Republican:

RNC Chairman Michael Steele on Monday said harsh criticism from his opponents is motivated by race.

Steele brushed aside calls for him to resign in his first interview since news broke that the Republican National Committee (RNC) reimbursed young donors for a nearly $2,000 party at a bondage-themed nightclub in Los Angeles.

In the interview, Steele said that black political leaders, such as President Barack Obama and him, are held to an unfair higher standard.

“The honest answer is, yes,” he said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “Barack Obama has a slimmer margin. A lot of folks do.

I wouldn’t exactly call the free ride Obama got on the shoulders of a giddy, drooling media that refused to honestly report his past associations and qualifications an “unfair higher standard.” If anything it was precisely the opposite.

It’s time for Steele to pack his bags if he’s going to hop on the Lewis/Clyburn train. Criticism of Steele is based on his mismanagement, and the fact that he’s saying these things means that he knows that.
