Steele: I Want More Delegates of Color

Calling all minorities! Calling all minorities! Michael Steele is seeking soul brothers and soul sisters to serve as Republican delegates!

According to Politico’s Andy Barr, RNC Chairman Michelle Steele is asking Florida Republicans to send delegates of color to the next Republican National Convention.

“Could you help a brother out? No more national conventions with 36 people of color in the room,” Steele reportedly told fellow Republicans on Monday. “Please send some folks to the convention that look like Florida.

Steele also informed members of his party that it was “time to get busy” and open up a can of whoop-ass on the Democrats, who appear to have the upper hand so far in the Sunshine State’s voter registration battle.

“We want to turn around those voter registration numbers. We want to turn around the turnout. And we want to keep Florida competitive for the Republican Party and not cede any ground, any area or any vote to the Democrats,” he said.

While I applaud Mr. Steele’s efforts to diversify the Grand Old White Man’s Party, he may have some difficulty with this task. According to the most recent census, only 55 nonwhite Americans identify themselves as Republican. However, all is not lost.

NASA reports indicate the existence of a large colony of minority Republicans located somewhere on the outer rings of Neptune. By all accounts, this is a truly remarkable discovery. Veteran astronomers are saying they have never seen anything like it in their entire lives.

If Steele and his amigos can get a spaceship out there by the end of the fiscal year, they may be able to bring back some of these extraterrestrials in time for the next GOP convention.

If this doesn’t work, maybe Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Cal Thomas, and others from the Right will agree to show up at the convention in blackface.

  3. Steele has not had a good start. I don't think he's the right person for the job.

  4. Steele just needs a little "steel" in his backbone and the ability to stand up to assholes like Limbaugh.

  5. It wasn't Limbaugh who was "upset" at his comments it was other Repubicans so, technically, Steele needs to stand up to his fellow GOPers, not Rush.

  7. Sorry haven't been around in while - been have some technical difficulties.

    So - why is it a bad thing for Steele to ask that the Republican party bring more blacks in to the party - but it was okay for Bobby Rush to state that Obama's seat can ONLY go to a black person?

    Surely, Mark - you aren't condoning the double standards are ya?

    What are you talking about, Bobo? I said in my piece that i applauded Steele's efforts to diversify the GOP. That remark about NASA and blackface was just meant to be a joke.

    As for Bobby Rush, I sure as hell didn't give that guy a free pass. Check out this piece from my old blog that ran in December:
