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

by Juli Weiner

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.

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

PsycGirl September 15, 2009 at 11:50 am

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

ManchuCandidate September 15, 2009 at 11:51 am

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?

Michael Steele is NOT cuter than that puppy.

the problem child September 15, 2009 at 11:53 am

Does Steele really want to go there? Really?

house of the blue lights September 15, 2009 at 11:53 am

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

freakishlystrong September 15, 2009 at 11:54 am

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

the problem child September 15, 2009 at 11:55 am

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

Chickensmack September 15, 2009 at 11:57 am

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 September 15, 2009 at 11:57 am

Fo Shizzle, suck on that dizzle…

V572625694 September 15, 2009 at 11:58 am

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:00 pm

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

DoctorCulturae September 15, 2009 at 12:04 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:06 pm

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

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


finallyhappy September 15, 2009 at 12:06 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:07 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:10 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:11 pm

Michael Steele + Joe Wilson = The Defiant Ones

Texan Bulldoggette September 15, 2009 at 12:11 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:13 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:15 pm

[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 September 15, 2009 at 12:17 pm

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

S.Luggo September 15, 2009 at 12:19 pm

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

magic titty September 15, 2009 at 12:23 pm

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

slappypaddy September 15, 2009 at 12:27 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:28 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:29 pm

[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 September 15, 2009 at 12:29 pm

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

El Pinche September 15, 2009 at 12:30 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:34 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 12:37 pm

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

mean to Gen. Petraeu

The mystery word was supposed to be “Petraeus”.

Humpback September 15, 2009 at 12:39 pm

Never stick your finger in that part of the dog! September 15, 2009 at 12:50 pm

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

Oldskool September 15, 2009 at 12:53 pm

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. September 15, 2009 at 1:05 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 1:05 pm

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.

JSDC007 September 15, 2009 at 1:18 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 1:26 pm

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

Paterlanger September 15, 2009 at 1:31 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 1:34 pm

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?

Gotta give Steele credit for lifting that argument from Animal House

Dangerous September 15, 2009 at 2:42 pm

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 September 15, 2009 at 4:10 pm

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

notwavingbutdrowning September 15, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Every time Michael Steele speaks God kills a terrier.

zhubajie September 15, 2009 at 7:18 pm

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

Bruno September 15, 2009 at 9:46 pm

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

LowerdPeninsula September 16, 2009 at 12:08 am

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.
