Lapdog of the Right.A ha ha ha, we had to do a Google search to make sure nobody had put that crack in a headline yet. So anyway yes, Michael Steele spoke ill of Rush Limbaugh on late-night television, and then Rush Limbaugh said mean things about Michael Steele on the radio, and then Steele had to apologize because Rush Limbaugh makes a gazillion dollars a year putting cigars in his face and pontificating on the radio whereas Michael Steele is just some loser from Maryland.

There are a couple of sad/funny aspects to this story. Number one: Michael Steele, bless his heart, really is trying to help the Republican party by going on shows like whatever it’s called, D.L. Hughley Talks About the News. Obviously he will not win over any young black liberal voters by doing so, but as President Obama has already proved, the point isn’t always to win people over — it’s to look like you’re trying. Michael Steele appears to be honestly trying to rescue the Republican party from becoming the exclusive province of angry old Southern whites, and that is commendable. It is just too easy to make fun of him, because he says such comical things all the time.

Second: All this outrage over Rush Limbaugh saying he wants President Obama to fail? STOP IT. Stop being outraged. Remember back in the first few years of the war when Republicans were always saying, “Democrats want us to lose! They want President Bush to fail! How awful of them, and unpatriotic!” even though no Democrats actually said they wanted to lose the war? Sure, this case is a little different because Limbaugh did actually say out loud that he wants the president to fail, and also we are not talking about matters of life and death. But the fact remains: it is annoying as shit when you are in the minority party and your motherfucking JOB is to oppose pretty much everything the president does, and the majority party comes out and acts all outraged that you don’t support the president.

Anyway, the point is that the rancid megalomaniac Rush Limbaugh now has Michael Steele’s testicles, in a jar.

  • Doglessliberal

    Rush Limbaugh: drug addict, married three times (left second wife on Xmas weekend), divorced three times, regularly lies with impunity on his show (sadly, regularly is believed)

    Newt Gingrich: married three times (first marriage ended after he discussed the details of the divorce with his wife while she was recovering from cancer surgery. Married again in 1981 and was divorced in 2000, when he married the young congressional aide with whom he was having an affair), presided over fairly stupid and destructive Contract With America and impeachment of Clinton.

    Both are crazy rich, hypocritical white guys without a clue what “the American People” are going through.

    These, plus Sarah Palin, are the saviors of the Republican party? I feel sorry for Steele.

  • Tommy Says Soooo

    Funny, I said horrible things about Rush at a gathering and I got the laid seven times.

  • Noodle Salad

    A minority party’s raison d’etre isn’t simply obstructionism on principle, but rather to engage in constructive debate on the policies of the majority and offer real alternatives. That the minority party should have opposition to everything the majority does, without a thought given to policy or consequences, is folly. Thank you Karl Rove, for making America think that tactics = substance.

    Also, when Rush goes down, shit is going to be bigger than the Hindenberg crash. Only difference is, no humanity.

  • Woodwards Friend

    Rush Limbaugh is kind of like Friends if they kept that show on the air. He’s this thing that was sort of interesting 15 years but now his act is as absurd as a bunch of 40-somethings hanging out in a coffee shop cleverly wondering when their life will get direction.

  • President Beeblebrox

    There’s a big difference between opposing the majority party and actively wanting the President to fail. I don’t think any Democrat said that they wanted the Iraq War to fail – although the GOP tried hard to paint Obama’s opposition to the war and determination to leave as soon as practicable as “surrender” and courting failure.

    This is really no different than what the GOP did with Clinton – except Obama is made of Teflon, whereas Clinton seemed to be the Velcro President.

    I agree, guys. Let off Michael Steele. All he’s trying to do is take a party that has traditionally been headed by white males and which is dedicated to promoting the interests of a small class of white plutocrats by demonizing minorities, gays and the poor and turning it into a party dedicated to promoting the interests of a small class of white plutocrats by demonizing minorities, gays and the poor except now nominally headed by a black man.

    The best part of that segment of “D.L.

Oh, and also Michael Steele was opposite Chuck D. Classic television.

  • jagorev

    [re=256637]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: Rush Limbaugh is not just a southern thing, he’s more of a resentful white people thing. Choose any random town in, say, upstate New York, or the exurban stucco stretches of California, and you will find Rush Limbaugh revered as a God therein.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is: kill whitey.

  • totoro

    Lets not let off of Steele. He has no intention of changing any public policy positions of his party. Rather he wants to modify their perception. He is the propaganda minister, not the ombudsman, of his party. His capitulation to the vile-spewing talk-radio rabble of his party closes the case.

    Democrats shouldn’t rest on their laurels. The Republicans are preparing a competent line of succession as we speak:

  • whelmed

    Rush does have balls of Steele–resting on his chin. We are witnessing the pussyfication of the Republic (if they won’t say Democratic…) party. These guys are so frightened to utter anything that might be contrary to prevailing dogma, it’s as if they will be brought before the Grand Inquisitor or purged from the party and be rehabilitated in the USA’s only gulag, Alaska.

  • Larry McAwful

    I used to think that if Rush Limbaugh died, it would be okay, because he’s really not helping the national debate. And he still isn’t, but he sure is simultaneously energizing and marginalizing the far right wing of the Republican party, and rendering the rest of the Republican party impotent at the same time. Since times are such that we really need to be free of Republican influence, this only helps.

    I hope we see Rush around long enough to reduce Senate Republicans to 35, and House Republicans to about 120. The Democrats are fixed to do well in the 2010 and 2012 elections, if this keeps up, and if the economy improves, they’ll do all right in 2014, too. How they do in 2016 will depend on how much the right wing lays the Republican party to waste over the next six years. I’m all for helping them.

    Michael Steele will, I predict, quit his job as RNC chairman in disgust by 2011.

  • user-of-owls

    Can someone please explain the loopy right’s “We want him to fail” logic to me? Every last one of the bloviators who says this immediately follows it up by saying “Big Government/Socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried.” Well, if you believe that, then why would you need to “want” Obama to fail? It would be like watching a 5-year old who just said, “I’m gonna jump to the moon!” and thinking, “I want you to fail at that.”

    Ha ha ha. Very funny, SKS.

Let me know how “life and death” it suddenly becomes when you no longer have the foregoing.

    Jabba Limbaugh is the guy the GOP can’t live with and cannot live without. They have an abusive codependent relationship. If he stays, nobody rational wants to join the GOP, but if he leaves, the party’s base leaves with him. Gotta love that third rail, destined to keep the GOP too stunned to be effective for the foreseeable future.

    I respectfully disagree with the Wonkette that everyone should shutup about Limbaugh’s “fail” comments. I don’t think it can be mentioned enough, actually. Whatever anyone said about horrible President George Bush, no one said they want him to fail. No one said we want to fail in Iraq. As wrong as anyone thought the war was, no one was dumb enough to say that.

    But this idiot says he wants the President to fail, at a time when failure might mean the end of the United States as we know it. Wonkette may be tired of hearing about it, but if the GOP (as evidenced by Limbaugh) wants the President to fail, there is NO FUCKING WAY anyone should be shutting up about it.

  • stew

    This is so special!

    Sarah, I agree with you that Michael Steele really is trying, but I don’t care how long this stupid “outrage” story stays in the news because all it does is highlight how far up it’s ass the head of the GOP is. While the country goes down the tubes they’re infighting between the Chairman of the RNC and a fucking radio personality. Their party has been taken hostage by the nut wing, and I always love a good nut fight. It doesn’t matter if WALNUTS! is attempting to try to make an appearance to make an effort in Washington; fatty oxycontini Rush is who they love and that’s who they’re listening to. It’s populism vs. logic, and it’s a great fight to watch when it’s within the GOP.

    [re=256602]magic titty[/re]: Because that’s the way they like it. You see? Coloreds have no place in the GOP. Michael Steele and Bobby Jindal are making fools of themselves by even trying to play that game, or as Layne (think) put it: “…it’s called a big tent, motherfucker.”

    Rush Limbaugh is the soul of the GOP. That’s who they follow; he’s their Jesus. For us, this is a beautiful thing. It only confirms that, first, Republicans are far removed from the mainstream because more Americans hate Limbaugh’s guts than there are Dittoheads. Secondly, it shows, again, that coloreds have no place in the GOP. Nobody in the Republican Party gives a flying fuck about Michael Steele and Bobby Jindal just pissed off all of Alaska. Third, it shows Republicans can’t even play democracy in their own ranks. Steele is an elected official. Limbaugh is not. Who has more followers?

    I love this. I really do. Republicans can only outdo themselves and that’s how we win elections, motherfuckers.

They cannot win right now, only obstruct, not a political strength going forward. It may give them Raygunesque self-righteousness, but it’s a no-win over the short term. Why? Because they can’t just say “Capitalism, No Taxes for Anyone, & Freedom!” without real ideas and a program. All the Dems have to say is “We tried your program with your guy Bush. How did that work out?”

  • Zadig

    Again, the truism appears: what’s good for Rush Limbaugh is fantastic for the Democrats. You can see precisely which (of Conservatism/Republicanism and Limbaugh’s career) is more important to Rush, when he would sooner publicly emasculate the de jure head of his party than be referred to as a mere entertainer.

    I’d almost feel bad about progressivism benefiting from these public castrations, alongside such a terrible scumbag. But I know it’ll turn out all right when Rush’s own efforts make “conservatism” and by extension, his Rotundity himself, irrelevant.

    In other news, I was watching Maddow and Olbermann last night for whatever reason, and in talking about all this, they kept using some stock CPAC footage of Rush Limbaugh, trying to stoke the crowd or something, hopping around or whatever behind his podium. It… rippled and undulated, or something. My mind couldn’t fully comprehend what was happening, except that it was awful.

    “What about this bonehead Rush Limbaugh? Honest to God, I mean, what is going on there? He gets up in Washington and he’s the keynote speaker at some function and he comes up and he looks like an East European gangster. He’s got the black jacket on, the black silk shirt and it’s unbuttoned like, oh yeah, when you think Rush Limbaugh, you think, ‘Ooh, let’s see a little flesh.’ Honestly. What is he doing?”

    [re=256602]magic titty[/re]: He’s not interested in holding office. He might have to *work*, then. He couldn’t just sit around and use his Magical Voice to stir up his drooling minions, and get off on the resultant power trip. He’d have to get *results* ‘n’ shit.

    He has said as much. He has the best job *now*.

    What a human assboil.

    [re=256633]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Why try to be King when it’s more fun to play Kingmaker? He is not the least bit interested in service, or problem-solving, or America, or its future, or the lives of the pathetic tards who think he represents them.

    He is interested in Power and Ego. And he gets all that where he is right now.

    BTW, in this blurb: “Michael Steele appears to be honestly trying to rescue the Republican party from becoming the exclusive provenance of angry old Southern whites”

    Don’t be sloppy, guys.
    You don’t mean “provenance”. You mean “province”.

    “Provenance” is, like, the origin, source, or history of ownership of something, like a work of art. “What is this piece’s provenance?”, is auctionhouse speak for “How the hell did we come by this thing, and who had it before that?”

    [re=256642]jagorev[/re]: All of them? Can’t we keep a few of ‘the good ones’ as pets?

    Everybody think back a bit – say a bazillion years ago, when the Earth was young and the 2008 Democratic primary race was still getting started in the Flyover states… I remember watching some old white hick farmer come to the town-hall mic and ask about Obama “What about this Obama fella? What if he gets elected? Will they want revenge?” ‘They’??… gee, I wondered who ‘They’ were to this old Bitter, and what vile hate-crimes has he committed in his life to make him worry about whatever (richly deserved and long overdue) revenge he faces? In the next few years, people like him are going to become the lumpenproletariat of the Republican part, with a few wingnuts going off the edge into resurgent milita cells – all supporting Rush as they ‘Leader-in-exile’.

    [re=256787]theevilmrrogers[/re]: “her neck”???

    I’d be willing to bet you a whole bushel of whore diamonds that Rush’s hookers are not “she”. At least, not originally.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with it.

    Unless you’re a Raging Conservatard.

    [re=256889]Bearbloke[/re]: The white trash morons who have been squatting in the house on our corner for the past four months have started bullying the lovely old black couple who lives next door to them, who have lived here for 30 years. The mildly disturbed property owner, whose wealthy family left him the house, was “helping” them, and now he has moved somewhere else to get away from them, and they’re turning the place into Dogpatch.

    A few weeks ago, the old man parked his car a bit too far over to one side of the driveway, and Mr. White Trash Moron came out of “his” house, snarling, “I guess you think with One of Yours in the White House, you can just do whatever the hell you want, huh, old man? Well … I’m *watching* you! I’m *watching* you, and I gotta gun, so don’t you try no shit!”

    This is the sweetest old churchgoing gentleman. He’s never “tried no shit” in his entire life.


    I am not making this up. This is a nice neighborhood in West Los Angeles. They actually say this shit. I’ve called the police, who just come out and act beleaguered that I’m bothering them. I told the 9/11 girl, for instance, that the woman was drunk. “How do you know?” Ah, God … what *else* could be wrong with someone standing outside at 1PM on a Sunday screaming curses and threats at the neighbors … who, I think, may not have even been home at the time. I told 9/11 about the threat about the shotgun, and she just sighed and said, in that prissy voice, “Ma’am … did you *SEE* the shotgun?”

    No. Just heard the screeching and the threats.
    I guess that means everything’s just fine, huh, Ms. Police Lady?

    Not sure what we’re going to do.
    These are real people, acting like the worst caricatures of dumbass trashy Southerners imaginable.

    You *bet* these people are afraid “the blacks” are going to take revenge. They (a) assume everyone thinks like they do, and by that token (b) they know they have it coming.

    Michael Steele should not have to apologize for his accurate analysis of Limbaugh!

    [re=256935]Bearbloke[/re]: Not far from there, no. Maybe 2 miles further inland. Why? Have you got an idea? Please don’t strafe the place. I just put in some spring flowers.

  • TeddyS

    Michelle Bachman called Rush today to apologize for saying that Michael Steele was “da man” when she really knows dat Rush is “da man.”

    [re=256955]iolanthe[/re]: Sigh, and people in California still have the nerve to diss people from the Southern U.S. I live in a small, Alabama town in a racially diverse neighborhood.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=257018]El Vista[/re]: Yes, but the point is that these are Mentally Deranged people in West L.A., not members of the County Boards or State Legislature, like they are in Montgomery; you did notice how fast the career of that asshat small-town So. Cal mayor crashed and burned because of that watermelon-White House thing, right?

  • Atheist Nun

    [re=256909]iolanthe[/re]: You and/or your neighbors need to start recording the ‘white trash morons,’ do not engage them, just record what they say. Once you have enough crazy bullshit on tape, take the property owner to court for harassment, threats and whatever else you can get them on tape doing. Money talks. The owner is probably just waiting for a good excuse to cut the yokels loose anyway.

    Plan 2 involves something like: the elderly couple taking a vacation as you set up speakers in their home facing the yokels’ house and blast an ultra low-frequency audio assault with subliminal messages, then rig up a pipe and a fan to send a cloud of Butyric acid into their home. Think creatively.

  • MrsNateSilver

    [re=256613]Noodle Salad[/re]: Well said, Noodle.

    Not that this is shocking to me, but it’s such hypocritical bullshit that the conservatives are rooting for failure of the president. (Closet-gay, cocksucking, porn loving, philandering conservatives are hypocritical??? Well, I never! NO!!!!11!!!)

    For the most part, even the most vocal libruhls never called for the failure of W. We wanted BETTER-ness from the Administration. We never got it, but we never wished for the failure of Iraq, of “The War on Turr”, of FEMA in Katrina, etc. We wanted those operations to be conducted well, instead of in a fumbling, misguided, my-way-or-the-highway, dumbfuck way. We called attention to the failure of the last president, but we didn’t hope for it just so we could get back into power.

    Liberals are the REAL Americans. We actually care about the country as a whole, and not the success of our party or beliefs over the success of the country.

    So, in other words, Wonketteers, I’m going to complain as much as I like about asshole buttfucks like Limbaugh and his Klan, because when I dissent, I do it because I want to see success, justice, a better way. When they dissent, they do it because they hate any vision that doesn’t fit their narrow scope of how the world should exist. And damn the future of American if it isn’t a Conservative America. THAT is unpatriotic. That is bullshit and that deserves as much criticism as we can muster.

  • lulzmonger

    Lovely. Now I want to see Palin slag Rush … come on, Sarah, we all know how much you LOVE the bright lights & having those TeeVee cameras pointed at you!

    Talk about lulz: she’s got a mouth every bit as nasty as his (if her anecdotal “so the jungle-bunny beat the bitch” comment is real), their egos are both equally galactic in scale, & she’s got no nads for The Oxycontinmoron to harvest. Better still, they’re both bullshit-pimps with room-temperature IQs, so you just KNOW that feud could go on & on & on. Then there’s the potential for wingnut-on-wingnut fratricide &/or mass-suicide.

    Teh GOP: heads bitten off chickens while you wait, 10 cents per head.

  • gkaiasante

    Poor GOP–you’re like slugs in a salt mine.

  • Snarkfest

    Since Rahm owns Rush now – does that mean he gets Steel’s balls as well?
    From what I have seen, Rahm has enough balls for 2 men already. Maybe we could donate a pair to Nancy Pelosi.
