Losers.Oh good gravy they are having the Fourth Ballot! It takes so long. “It’s time to vote,” the douche keeps saying — watch him say it, here on CSPAN! Something about changed proxy votes, maybe these people could get it together, and OH SHIT MIKE DUNCAN IS WITHDRAWING! So this should go to Steele, who will take his “Victory in Maryland” nationwide!

Here’s our original multi-UPDATES post. You must read it, for background. And now we’ll turn this one into a LIVE BLOG, let the liveblogging begin!

2:18 PM — Boos, hisses!
2:18 PM — Bennett demanding a 15-minute recess for deal making. More boos!
2:19 PM — Everybody says NO!
2:19 PM — No recess.
2:21 PM — Balloting proceeds, Michael Steele is running around giving little handjobs to the Republicans “on the fence.” They might not like black people, but they like getting jerked off by dudes!
2:23 PM — Jesus fucking christ, four of these old klansmen are ready to vote, except for not having a ballot.
2:23 PM — State roll call!
2:24 PM — Chris Cillizza is just cold goin’ nuts, on his Twitter.
2:25 PM — Guam … Hawaii … these are not even parts of the “pro-America America,” just skip ’em.
2:32 PM — Ugh, this is taking so long that your editor just spent five minutes arguing real-estate recovery windows with his comrades from the old Budapest Business Journal.
2:33 PM — Duncan is such a dull turd. If the last miserable two years for the GOP, under his leadership, was “truly the highlight of [his] life,” then we really don’t want to know anything else about his tragic shit-box of a life.
2:34 PM — Truly, these are the worst looking people in America. Even the “youngish” ones look old, they are pale and wrinkled, bad hair and schlubby suits, the few women have awful pinched little mouths, like anteaters, or beakless chickens.
2:38 PM — Who is the white-haired douche in the red baseball cap? He needs a good kick in the cunt.
2:29 PM — If you locked the doors of this place, from the outside, and set the building on fire, America would be free of some of its very worst specimens.
2:41 PM — FOURTH BALLOT: Dawson 62, Steele 60, hahahah, Southern Segregationists for the Win! Not really, another ballot coming at 3 p.m., good christ. Blackwell down to 15 votes, Saul Anuzis got what, 30? No, 31. “The Fix” says on its “Twitter” this means Anuzis holds the key, which is technically true, with the numbers. Please oh please let Katon “whites-only country club” Dawson win the RNC chair!
2:45 PM — We’ll be back later?
3:00 PM — Ballot box is empty. There are 21 proxy votes, still, and they are not changing their votes.
3:00 PM — FIFTH BALLOT, lamers.
3:00 PM — Who will drop out now? Blackwell?
3:01 PM — Yes!
3:02 PM — No? Ken Blackwell is crying in the ladies’ bathroom, apparently. Nobody can find him. Oh, now he’s on the way. Had to poop.
3:03 PM — In the usual “play the blacks against each other” GOP move, Blackwell will now drop out and probably back the South Carolina segregationist.
3:04 PM — “We are about to embark on a journey together … we’re back on path to become the majority party.” Yeah sure you are.
3:05 PM — “You either change the composition of the electorate, or you change the attitude of the electorate.”
3:05 PM — Blackwell, you forgot to take the toilet paper out of your mouth, dude. Can’t understand you.
3:05 PM — “New birth of freedom, I’m going to ask you bear with me for two minutes.” Oh just quit and get off the stage, lamer.
3:06 PM — “My fullest support behind the candidate I think will do three things,” etc. “Fullest”?
3:07 PM — Blackwell supports …. STEELE!!!!
3:08 PM — And finally, a Fifth Ballot.
3:09 PM — More loving handjobs as Steele tries to defeat the brave whites-only segregationist, South Carolina klansman Katon Dawson.
3:13 PM — This woman really puts some sexy joy into the reading of these state names.
3:13 PM — Hurry up you goddamned lamers, your editor needs to go to the Post Office. Your editor is looking forward to standing in line at the Post Office, because it will be more fun than watching these twatwaffles waste an entire day choosing their new king of the losers club.
3:18 PM — Ugh, another proxy committee vote. GO DAWSON!
3:20 PM — But you should know that Dawson quit being an official racist! It’s true! Once his membership at the “No Darkies” golf resort was made public, he gave up his membership! (Or so he claims, who knows.)
3:27 PM — Ah it’s not over yet. Steele leads with 79, Segregationist with 69, Saul with 20.
3:30 PM — Saul Anuzis at the podium.
3:31 PM — What an honor, that the son of an immigrant could lose this badly.
3:31 PM — NO ENDORSEMENT! THE BASTARD.
3:44 PM — And Ballot No. 6 finally goes out to these limp goons.
3:47 PM — Even with a half-dozen of these ballots today, there are still several old fat-bags who can’t remember to take a ballot.
3:48 PM — Finally, again, the state names. There is no way this can end in a tie, is there? Ha, of course there is! 84-84.
3:53 PM — The southerners sure look grim as they drop off this sixth ballot, against the Maryland slave.
4:04 PM — MICHAEL STEELE FOR THE WIN, 91 VOTES.
4:05 PM — He finally won something, although nearly half of RNC toads bravely voted for a white racist from South Carolina.
4:08 PM — Steele vows to grow the party by going to, uh, “every boardroom.” Hooray!
4:09 PM — He also claims he will slaughter those who obstruct him, or something. This gets some cheers, and angry silence from those Obstructors soon to be slaughtered.
4:10 PM — Okay, former assistant governor sleepytime, good-bye, good luck, god knows you need it.

    The ONLY thing interesting about Michael Steele is that his sister used to be married to Mike Tyson. Otherwise, he’s dull, ineffective, but not outwardly mean.

  • masterdebater

    And everyone is happy with the result! Well, except the red states.

  • SayItWithWookies

    I hope Steele brings to the GOP what he brought to Maryland — obscurity and failure.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Bennett? Is that Bill Bennett, the moralizing full-of-himself gambling hypocrite? I’m finding it harder and harder to believe this party controlled America for the last eight years.

  • magic titty

    Ken, you forgot the word “like” in your jerked off sentence. But carry on.

  • norbizness

    The racial composition of the competitors is just like one of their conventions or a Utah Jazz basketball game: the audience is totally white, and all the blacks are on-stage. Which means I expect either Karl Malone or Bryon Russell to win this thing.

  • Colander

    This is kind of infuriating. Do these people not realize how lame they are??

  • Terry

    Good point. At this point in the GOP, that would be refreshing.

  • norbizness

    [re=232934]magic titty[/re]: The GOP as a party is not unlike the decision to pay Greg Ostertag 39 million over 6 years to get his weak shit repeatedly thrown back in his face and to foul out in 11 minutes.

  • Scarab

    Ah yes memories. Remember RNC Chair, Ken Mehlman?
    Now HE was a was a douchebag.

  • Sussemilch

    He’s black. Because the only way to get over your fear of minorities is to outsource the job to other minorities to handle it for you.

  • MarSF

    I’ve always been impressed with Steele’s inability to recognize how idiotic the GOP has become.
    And I have noticed that he is also pretty stupid.

    He’s perfect for this job!

    Republicans still having trouble thwarting negro superiority.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Steele? Oh, shit. The Democrats might as well just throw in the towel before the 2010 races even begin. I mean, if the Repugs
    have a black guy, Barack Obama won’t be special anymore. The way the Repug mind works.

    This is why I love Wonkette.

  • DustBowlBlues

    The whites-only Country Club guy will make up for losing the black vote, except for Steele, J.C. Watt and 4 or 6 others who are equally lackluster, but appear on the Teevee because, you know, they’re black Republicans. (Black Democrats have a lot more competition and have to be smart and articulate to be noticed.)

    But–He’ll make up for it with sucking in the hispanic vote–all he has to do is point out how many jobs his country club created for Mexicans.

    A hardline segregationist? And southern? Oh, be still my heart.

  • Scarab

    So what’s the skinny on Katon Dawson? Is he stupid, corrupt, racist, or a closeted?

  • american mutt

    [re=232956]DustBowlBlues[/re]: oh my god! because like, i voted for the brown dude because he’s colored and such. I don’t get this. WHICH BROWN DUDE DO I SUPPORT?!

    [re=232934]magic titty[/re]: Not funny. Dave Bing’s running for mayor of Detroit.

  • TJBeck

    OK, here we go again! I’m rootin’ for the dark hoss’. That’d be the black guy.

  • The Cold Sea

    Wait, I thought Rush Limbaugh was the king of the Republitards.

  • Terry

    Steele is a lot like the goofy but earnest kid who hangs around the popular kids hoping they’ll like him. Bless his heart.

  • TJBeck

    Oh snap, black guy said KORAN and IMMEDIATELY HAD TO WITHDRAW HIS NAME!

  • The Cold Sea

    Very typical of the Repubs to be tone deaf. They just clang these notes. From Sarah Palin to Michael Steele.

    He’s the black, male Sarah Palin.

  • Packherd

    Black d00dz endorsin’ Black d00dz! Identity politics are destroying this nation!

  • Scarab

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Shouldn’t the Supreme Court have stopped the recounts by now?

  • actor212

    Ooooh, Steele as GOP chairman?

    That’s going to drive the right wing nuts. Now they have a black chairman AND a black President!

  • One Yield Regular

    According to Wikipedia, Katon Dawson was born on Feb. 29 of a leap year, making him only a ten year old boy. No wonder he’s so popular among Republicans.

  • Terry

    Oooh, the War Room over at Salon is reporting that Dawson, the fella from SC going head to head with Steele, got into politics because he was tramautized at age 15 by having to attend a non-segregated school. Actually, here’s the original article that War Room cites:

    http://spectator.org/blog/2009/01/26/katon-dawson-and-his-gop-missi

  • TGY

    [re=232975]The Cold Sea[/re]: He’s only the Shadow Emperor. With no clothes. That means he has no responsibilities except to keep various flying insects out of his naked ass (NB: that’s a big goal to guard), but whatevs.

  • Colander

    [re=232980]Terry[/re]: I agree.

  • bhosp

    If Steele wins I hope Obama invites him over to the White House to play basketball, and the front page of the NYT on monday has a picture of the President dunking on this fool.

  • Larry McAwful

    Remember when Steele ran for Senate in Maryland and tried to do so without mentioning his party affiliation either in person or in his campaign literature? Or even on his campaign web site? I wonder if he wants to transform his party into “the party formerly known as the GOP.”

  • Woodwards Friend

    Blackwell’s endorsement of Steele only proves the blacks stick together and that will probably be enough to elect Dawson’s Creek or whoever this other guy is.

  • Mr Blifil

    If Steele wins the air will be thick with Oreos.

  • american mutt

    Don’t blame me. I voted for Kodos.

  • TJBeck

    [re=232988]actor212[/re]: A black chairman opposed to the death penalty, and not really liked by the gun nuts.

  • chascates

    You know, Palin is in town. And if she can raise 5 kids, and run the state of Alaska, and run marathons, AND cook mooseburgers she can fit this in.
    She is the future of the GOP after all.

  • Colander

    I’ve never rooted so hard for a klansman I wasn’t sleeping with.

    [re=232973]bitchincamaro[/re]: No fooling?

    This vote suddenly got more exciting when Joy Division’s “Transmission” came on my Ipod. DANCE DANCE DANCE DANCE to the RADIO!!!!

  • Scarab

    I thought my CSPAN video feed was stalling but now I think that’s just how slow these old people move.

  • Min

    Copycats. The Demos field a female candidate for president, and the GOP drafts an idiot with ovaries for Veep.

    The Demos elect a black man as president, and the RNC pretends to a black man as chair.

  • digibal235

    Best quote from Steele’s Wikipedia page:

    “It was raining Oreos… They were thick in the air like locusts. I was there. It was very real. It wasn’t subtle.”

  • SayItWithWookies

    They should elect Vicente Fox, since this is obviously a job Americans don’t want.

  • bitchincamaro

    [re=233012]magic titty[/re]: Serious.

    And why the fuck not?

  • Sussemilch

    Twatwaffles, indeed. And Steele is thick, rich and buttery.

  • Scarab

    I bet if Dawson drops out they still won’t have enough votes to elect the black guy.

  • magic titty

    I don’t understand. Republicans don’t like their black Negro President, but they’re hot for their black Negro RNC Chairman?

    What has happened to the Grand Ole Party?

  • Mahousu

    They better hurry – there’s a wedding scheduled for that room for 5:30, and they have to be out by 5:00. This is not a joke.

  • CorkPopper

    [re=233028]TJBeck[/re]: Nope. Still a Repub, so still blind.

  • The Cold Sea

    Dawson’s story of segregation is gripping: “I was standing in a bathroom in public school… This scar over here [pointing to his forehead] was from a baseball bat….”

    Hmmm. I wonder if the scar is real or makeup? Does it look like it was drawn on with the help of a mirror?

  • digibal235

  • cal

    Just imagine if the segregationist beats the black dude. How great will that be for GOP PR?

  • Scarab

    Wow, six votes.
    It’s going to be pretty hard to spin the ‘full solidarity’ line, that the entire party is behind the new RNC Chairman.

  • NoWireHangers

    Michael Steele?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Yes, GOP. Because that whole “Sarah Palin will get us the lady vote” thing worked SO well. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. If there’s one thing black people hate more than Republicans, it’s BLACK Republicans. HAHAHAHAHAAH!

  • snideinplainsight

    I think they should use Zwinky(tm) to make a new chairman.

  • Woodwards Friend

    I’m surprised the RNC didn’t elect Saul Anuzis national chairman after he lead the Michigan GOP to landslide victories in 2006 and 2008. Especially after Governor DeVos and Senator Hoogendyk gave such rousing endorsement speeches.

  • PrairiePossum

    If Steele wins this mess, I hope the crowd bursts into a rousing rendition of “Steele the Magic Negro.”

  • space stout

    mmmmm, twatwaffles. Could I get 2 twatwaffles with a schmear of Suzy Cream Cheese, please?

  • TeddyS

    Quite a hoedown at the RNC. Steele v. Dawson. Token black dude v. a South Carolina mouth-breather. Will all that time Steele spent jerking off Hannity on the teevee pay off with the needed six votes from delegates? Can these Klan descendants choke down the idea of having a magic Negro in charge? As the world turns. Steele should have had it on the fifth ballot…but didn’t.

  • 4tehlulz

  • One Yield Regular

    [re=233039]The Cold Sea[/re]: Dawson really deserves to win. If he can say that in a public forum and have zero clue as to how it would play out on Wonkette, then he is *perfect* for the job.

    What exactly did he say/do in a public restroom to merit a scar from a baseball bat? Was the floor wet?

  • DustBowlBlues

    [re=232984]The Cold Sea[/re]: Is it just me, or is the RNC bankrupt of ideas. Which, for America, is a good thing, indeed, for when they do have idea, they’re very bad ones.

    Will the winner attend the Alfalfa Dinner? And what the hell is that, anyway? A shout-out to Buckwheat and Alfalfa on Our Gang? A tribute to OK’s guv Alfalfa Bill Murray for calling out the National Guard to march, rifles at the ready, to Texas?

    A bunch of A-list DC dicks and twats?

    Multiple choice–I’ll go for that last one.

  • The Lucky Republican

    Slave?!?!??!??! That’s offensive, Ken. Michael Steele claims he is a freeman and until it is proven otherwise I feel it is appropriate that we should refer to him as such.

  • TJBeck

    Hmm, I have a feeling the loyal Michigan-type GOPers who liked Saul are going to align more with the Katon Dingus faction than the Steele Cretins, but I could be wrong. Only takes 6.

  • DustBowlBlues

    [re=232988]actor212[/re]: If Steele wins this, the wonkeratti will mourn deeply for the lost opportunities his first name represents. How great is our longing for his moniker to be Tom? And for his little nephew to storm the podium and congratulate him on his win.

    C’est tragique.

  • JamesMichaelCurley

    Its Steele FTW

  • digibal235

    If Dawson wins he will display severely muted joy and immediately give the darkie an uncomfotably long bro-hug. If Steele wins he will state all thanks go out to god, cry and reference his mama.

    This is just cruel. Now the Republicans will have a black guy in charge, and when they inevitably fail, they’ll just say, “Well, we tried putting a black guy in charge, but he failed, so black guys suck.” It will teach the Republicans the wrong lessons. That was probably intentional, I’m sure.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    I was hoping they’d elect Dawson (the guy who was in an all-white country club until he started running for this position) because, frankly, that’s what the GOP is all about. Putting a black dude in charge ain’t gonna change the core of the party. They’ll just have to be more careful about how loud they say the ‘n’ word.

    Since I’m not using them for Bing and don’t know who at the RNC to throw them at, I’ve got extra prejudices, spleen, spite and shit like that lying around at home if anybody wants any. These don’t seem to be in short supply here on ere-gracious Wonkette, however.

    Those Palin-Steele ’12 rallies are going to be awkward. People will have to chant, “Kill him! But we don’t mean you, you’re not like the others.”

  • Come here a minute

    Today we are all muslins.

    I’m finding it curious that I can’t get a connection to redstate.com right now. Perhaps their servers have exploded.

  • Woodwards Friend

    The Soviets had a leader named Steele. Or Stalin in their native tounge.

  • El Pinche

    Hooray for Clayton Bigsby !!

  • CivicHoliday

    Republican attempts and modern iconography = FAIL

  • President Beeblebrox

    This is hilarious. It’s like the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia all over again – the one where the GOP pretended it was the Rainbow Coalition.

    Now I suppose we all have to bend over, grab our ankles, and hope he succeeds because he’s the first black president of the RNC? Seriously, I really want to know how Rush is playing this.

  • InfiniteMonkey

    From FreeRepublic:

    “How about letting Sarah Palin run the RNC.

    Heck, she’s displayed more testicular fortitude than the
    majority of the emasculated males within the party here of late. Except for the vote on the stimulus.

    She could turn out out be Reagan in a skirt.”

  • MegsOfMegs

    In the end, most Republicans turn out to be Reagan in a skirt. Or at least pretend to be something like that in chatrooms.

  • gurukalehuru

    The comparison to the recent vice-presidential bid of a token female is just so obvious it’s pathetic. Also.

  • Ayreon

    The first black chairman of the Republican National Committee! I never thought I’d see the day! Dr. King’s dream is a reality!

  • InfiniteMonkey

    I would like to invite everyone to say “testicular fortitude” in a Foghorn Leghorn voice.

  • TeddyS

    Chairman Steele’s first organizational duty will be a trip through Dixie, starting with South Carolina, where he plans to salute the Confederate battle flag and boogie with some white women. Then the march through Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi to get some of that ole plantation money. This is such a hoot.

    Best quote from Steele’s Wikipedia page:

    “It was raining Oreos… They were thick in the air like locusts. I was there. It was very real. It wasn’t subtle.”

    Thanks for the reminder, digibal235.
    I had forgotten that Steele made that claim. I knew he backpedalled on Hannity, allowing Sean baby to lie.

    ————
    Don’t forget the signs Steele and Ehrlich had put up in the poorer sections of Prince George’s County back in the 2006 election:
    “WE R NOT SLAVES TO THE DEMOCRATS”

    ——————-
    So I wonder if Steele went to the confessional at his church, St. Mary’s of Landover Hills, MD
    (http://www.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=7207+Annapolis+Road,+Landover+Hills,+MD&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=48.374125,78.134766&ie=UTF8&ll=38.947547,-76.88837&spn=0.00146,0.002384&t=h&z=19)
    and confessed the oreo cookie lie?

    I see Larry David has gotten quite a tan. Nice nom de guerre.

  • wickedlittledoll

    I think Dubya deserves the job. He transformed the party while president and he wasn’t even trying. Imagine what he could do if given the green light!

    Sixth ballot? What is this, a Harvard Law Review election?

  • schvitzatura

    Pick up a box of these, where available, for newly-minted Chairman Steele’s coming-out debutante cotillion…Katon “Iago” Dawson would also appreciate the irony, no doubt.

  • proudcitizen

    Saul ANUZIS? Really? Can you imagine what that asshole’s (yeah, pun), life was like in High School?
