Michael Steele Is VERY ANGRY At Nancy Pelosi For Joe Wilson’s Outburst The Other Night

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

It’s like, why are Nancy Pelosi & The Democrats making such utter spectacles of themselves, interrupting the very important political work of health care and politics to yell at Joe Wilson? Michael Steele, in a statement, blah blah blah…

If we are going to march members down to the well of the House to apologize, Joe Wilson is going to have to get in line behind Nancy Pelosi, who attacked the intelligence community who protects us, Charlie Rangel who cheated on his taxes, Jack Murtha – a walking scandal, and we all know how the Democratic leadership tried to protect William Jefferson. Democrats don’t want an apology. They want a side show – something to shift the focus away from their government-run experiment on health care.

The Democrats forcing of Joe Wilson to endure A PUBLIC CENSURE OF DOOM will of course inevitably result in PUBLIC BACKLASH OF DOOM all on its own. All Michael Steele has to do is not do anything, and he can’t even manage to do that.

  • Way Cool Larry

    Is that picture of Steele for real? You be hard pressed to come up with satire that awesome.

  • PsycGirl

    So Steele is proposing a daisy chain? What spot does he plan to occupy?

  • ManchuCandidate

    Mikey, Mikey, Mikey. Didn’t mama (or Sean Connery) ever tell you never bring a knife to a gunfight?

    It’s not like your cockus is free and clear of scandal. Do the words Cocktober not ring a bell? Or Abrahmoff?

  • octupletsmom

    Michael Steele is NOT cuter than that puppy.

  • the problem child

    Does Steele really want to go there? Really?

  • house of the blue lights

    Why do we keep talking about health care reform when this guy Kanye West is being so mean to that little white girl?

  • freakishlystrong

    Shut the fuck up Shouty Mc.Loser Pants…ALL of you.

  • the problem child

    And why does that dog have the look of the recently sodomized, anyway? Hmm?

  • Chickensmack

    Consensus seems so distant. Yet, at least, with Steele at the helm of the GOP, each side has a black man they can hate on.

  • freakishlystrong

    Fo Shizzle, suck on that dizzle…

  • V572625694

    The point of apologizing in the “well” of the House is that Wilson owes an apology to the House of Representatives itself for his misbehavior. And he’d be willing to do it if it didn’t mean apologizing to [shudder] a woman for something he said to a Negro. Come on, it’s just a boy, you know?

  • magic titty

    But what does his dog, DJ Woof Woof, have to say?

  • DoctorCulturae

    Please keep defending Wilson Mikey! Every jackass has the the right to be protected by his own. Which reminds me, it seems time the elephant-donkey imagery should be switched.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    we all know how the Democratic leadership tried to protect William Jefferson

    Um, Mikey, do the words Joseph Cao mean anything to you?


  • finallyhappy

    Steele was a failure as our Lt. Gov and a failure(playing dirty campaign tricks and still losing) running against Cardin for Senate. The Post had an article today that the MD GOP party has less than $1000 and is thinking who will run against O’Malley. Gosh, Mikey, why not try a run for Governor- we could use some laughs.

  • bitchincamaro

    Robert Gibbs…said the incident was a lesson for his young son. Asked about the possible resolution, Mr. Gibbs said the administration would let the House deal with Mr. Wilson, in whatever way it deemed suitable, as long as it involves clearing the dinner table for a week solid and closely monitoring the fluid in the Tidy Bowl thingy in the downstairs bathroom .

  • converse

    Ahem, does Mikail look *darker* than normal in this picture? Juli, isn’t there enough hating without trying to make the real haters hate the token hater more than they already hate him?

  • Jim Demintia

    Michael Steele + Joe Wilson = The Defiant Ones

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    I eagerly await the SNL skits of Oreo but how will Fred Armisen play Barry & Mikey in the same skit? (Tip: SNL, can you hire one more person of the non-white persuasion??)

  • OzoneTom

    Mikey, take your dog and go down to the railroad tracks where there is a cow standing on the tracks and watch it just to see what happens.

  • Rotundo

    [re=411259]magic titty[/re]: I want to roll in Michaels’ legacy, it isn’t as good as a rotting deer carcass or a dead carp, but it is as close as I can get, stuck with this clown.

  • germansteel

    Speaking of dumbshits, how come we haven’t heard from Joe the Plumber lately?

  • S.Luggo

    Where’s Mike’s right hand and why does poochie look so startled?

  • magic titty

    [re=411279]germansteel[/re]: he’s surfin’ da redtubes.

  • slappypaddy

    he forgot to mention buttseks. that’s sort of an elephant in the living room, ain’t it?

    poor mikey, he’ll eat anything, but that’s all right. “for what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth — it is that which will defile you.” (the gospel of thomas, 14:24-26) clue addison in on that, will you, mikey?

  • WhatTheHeck

    Wait. Aren’t the republicans saying those who oppose Obama will be rounded up and sent to concentration camps?
    Well, Well! Steele and Wilson can be whipped into shape by camp commandant Pelosi.

  • Godless Liberal

    [re=411273]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: They actually do have a second dark-skinned fella, Kenan Thompson, who plays Michael Steele from time to time.

  • norbizness

    The homeys all love it when I give a shout out to Dan Rostenkowski!

  • norbizness

    [re=411279]germansteel[/re]: Oh, for fuck’s sake.

  • El Pinche

    I’ve met Michael Steele at an airport in Austin (must have been sucking up to secessionists). His complexion is smooth and perfect like chocolate, but he’s dumb as a rock. He smelled the liberal on me (pot) and was evasive as fuck .

  • Joshua Norton

    Repiggies would never, ever do anything as small-minded as that. In fact the only reason they stopped the business of the entire Congress to pass a bill that condemned for being mean to Gen. Petraeu was because that damned liberal, George Bush wanted them to do it.

  • Joshua Norton

    [re=411291]Joshua Norton[/re]:

    mean to Gen. Petraeu

    The mystery word was supposed to be “Petraeus”.

  • Humpback

    Never stick your finger in that part of the dog!


    [re=411298]Humpback[/re]: don’t press the bark button.

  • Oldskool

    After they give his a stern “bad boy!” Dems should make him wear a funny hat whenever he’s in the House. Like something Lady Gaga would wear.


    what a clown. actually, the whole lot of them are clowns in a ridiculous freaking sideshow. wilson succeeded mightily in drawing the focus away from the real issues…congrats, asshat. if i didn’t need to keep working on remodeling the hobo shack that i pay almost 11% interest on, i’d just go home and drink.

  • widget09

    Yes Joe did apologise to the President, but what about the other ~500 people in the chamber at the address. Basically he is saying (“I did it and I’m not sorry”). But yes, he truly is a sorry asshole.

  • Extemporanus


  • JSDC007

    Michael Steele is very very angry that he was passed over for the Annual Uncle Tom Award, and will now do everything possible to out “Yes-massah” D-list black singer and token black wingnut Lloyd Graves to win it back.

    Step one: Be Joe Wilson’s black friend. His only black friend.

  • Jim89048

    [re=411345]JSDC007[/re]: But who will be Michael Steele’s only black friend?

  • Paterlanger

    Here’s a crazy idea: Why not have Rep. Wilson step into the well of the House and respond to questions put to him by the Speaker, such as, “why did you say that the President was a liar”. Just ask the questions in a calm, civil tone and give the cracker the rope he needs to do the job himself.

  • Dolmance

    Help, I’m a white woman trapped in a black man’s body!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen in my entire life a face that showed less character than that little bastard Quisling, Michael Steele.

    Quisling and Steele share the same chin, or rather lack of chin.

    Will someone please bite one of that cocksucker’s fingers off?

  • mookworthjwilson

    [re=411352]Jim89048[/re]: Mike Tyson.

  • Hart88

    Gotta give Steele credit for lifting that argument from Animal House

  • Dangerous

    We don’t want a stinking apology. You can’t MAKE someone apologize. A real apology is from the heart with contrition, and Joe Wilson doesn’t have a heart and is proud, not contrite.

    So why don’t they pass a resolution calling Joe Wilson an asshole and be done with it. That has the advantage of being true, and Joe Wilson can claim it is his Constitutional Right to be an asshole.

    And the rest of us can boycott Hilton Head in protest of him being an asshole, so that the good people down there might elect someone else next time, rather than face the consequences or electing an asshole to represent them.

  • IonaTrailer

    Joe Wilson’s great-grandpappy owned Michael Steel AND Michelle Obama’s great-grandpappys. And all des lil pickaninnys. Des had a “relationship”.

  • notwavingbutdrowning

    Every time Michael Steele speaks God kills a terrier.

  • zhubajie

    I would imagine that being Joe Wilson is a punishment in itself.

  • Bruno

    Would Michael Steele’s dog bark have during the speech. I think not, because he knows his place.

  • LowerdPeninsula

    This is sad on some many levels, but Michael Steele is sad on so many levels.

    Doesn’t this dick get that Addison Wilson is being picked on because the fucking douche decided to shout at the president in the middled of a damned nationally-televised presidential address to Congress? Or, does he simply not care about the specificities, here? I’d call Steele an Uncle Tom, now, but I fear that’d besmirch the name of that character. The character of Uncle Tom was actually a decent human being with few options.
