Michael Steele Has A Lot Of Big Ideas About Harry Reid’s ’20 Seat Majority’

by Juli Weiner

Aspiring children’s birthday clown Michael Steele wants to know exactly what Harry Reid’s problem is. It’s like, Reid already has his precious “20 seat majority” so why are we even still talking about any of this health care whatever? Oh no? Oh YES. Steele went on Morning Joe’s Pun & Politicks Revue on teevee this morning to prove, with arithmetic, that Harry Reid and his dumb health care amendment statute Congress bill are totes “whacked-out.” Michael Steele is one viewing of School House Rock short of being merely benign.

A clownish chairman on a oafish show televised on a parody channel. A perfect straight flush!

Why is the white cop from “Sanford & Son” head of the RNC?

Manos: Hands of Fate December 9, 2009 at 3:19 pm

The stupid — it hurts!!!!

TheGryphon December 9, 2009 at 3:19 pm

wow, even a stopped clock is right once a millenium or something, Harry Reid SHOULD just pass the gall-darned thing dag nabbit!

Democrats are allowed to think, vote and act freely, as opposed to the Roboticans, who will slice your nuts off if you don’t toe the party line.

Fuck Congress, anyway. Bastards.

Come here a minute December 9, 2009 at 3:23 pm

I am sure the Republican constituency will be very pleased with the new RNC position on health care, “Pass the daggone bill!”

memzilla December 9, 2009 at 3:23 pm

I just want to stick this f***tard’s head into a bowling-ball polisher and press “puree.”

Apiring children’s birthday clown?

SayItWithWookies December 9, 2009 at 3:24 pm

Did you hear Mr. Steele, Harry? Pass the bill. Steele doesn’t care if you have to use all kinds of unscrupulous tricks — just ram the most socialist bill you can get through Congress so hard that the Republicans’ asses hurt. Please. I don’t even care if they enjoy that — it’ll be worth it.

Juli, that’s an insult to birthday clowns everywhere, but someone can lobby to make this his permanent moniker, not unlike “elected ruminant”.

slappypaddy December 9, 2009 at 3:31 pm

they’re whacking off bill? that’s old news, i thought monica did that way back when.

tehbenton December 9, 2009 at 3:34 pm

I listen to this human whoopee cushion talk, and I just keep telling myself, “Remember, self, he’s in a job they couldn’t *give* away.” The race to the bottom is complete.

germansteel December 9, 2009 at 3:35 pm

Is it uncool to refer to Steele as an Uncle Tom?

Extemporanus December 9, 2009 at 3:41 pm

[re=474914]Extemporanus[/re]: I’m an “apiring” children’s typo clown.

vladster December 9, 2009 at 3:43 pm

Why isn’t he squirtin’ his mojo all over boner and leave Harry alone?

queeraselvis v 2.0 December 9, 2009 at 4:04 pm

[re=474932]germansteel[/re]: Nope. I’d say it was obligatory.

takes12no1 December 9, 2009 at 4:09 pm

I saw Steele on Mornin’ Joe this morning. Bless Donnie for asking a semi-tough question for once and Barnacle’s follow up. Mr. Steele doesn’t do faux indignation very well. I guess they shouldn’t send a man to do a woman’s job.

Daggone, that is whacked out.

Aspiring children’s birthday clown Michael Steele…

Ledes like that are what keep me coming back to my Wonkette, day after day, week after week.

If Wayne Brady mikes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm X then Michael Steele makes Clarence Thomas look like Nat Turner

I’m claiming that agape-mouthed screencap as my new icon. Umaga deserves to RIP.

Minnie Mean December 9, 2009 at 4:36 pm

Hey – didn’t Michael Steele used to work at the gas station in Mayberry? I seem to remember a kerfluffle years ago when he made a citizen’s arrest.

Snarkalicious December 9, 2009 at 4:48 pm

[re=474932]germansteel[/re]: Yeah, douchebag! Get with the program and roll out some hyperbowl. That understaement/subtlety bull shit don’t fly around here.

thesheriffisnear December 9, 2009 at 4:50 pm

[re=475025]Minnie Mean[/re]: A Gomer is Bull deemed unworthy of breeding and subsequently castrated. It is also a deathbed patient that refuses to die and needlessly takes up hospital space and the valuable time of caregivers. Hence,you are absolutely correct.

coolcatdaddy December 9, 2009 at 5:10 pm

Someone please alert the medical authorities. Mr. Steele neglected to take his medications today.

sra December 9, 2009 at 5:17 pm

Erm, I’m confused. There are 60 senators in the Democratic caucus and 40 in the Republican one. Why is this not a 20 seat majority?

problemwithcaring December 9, 2009 at 5:37 pm

[re=474940]Extemporanus[/re]: The typo briefly confused. The pic will haunt me forever.

chascates December 9, 2009 at 6:40 pm

Just wait till Steele’s on Dancing with the Stars.

DooDoo Brown December 9, 2009 at 8:19 pm

Am I the only one who thinks that picture makes look like he just got busy in a Burger King bathroom?

imissopus December 9, 2009 at 8:57 pm

[re=475088]sra[/re]: On the off chance you’re serious, Steele is technically correct: the Dems do have a 20-seat majority when you count Bernie Sanders and Vinegar Joe. However, because the Dems range across the ideological spectrum and consider members’ debates over the merits of a bill or policy a good thing, it’s harder to get all sixty to vote the same way every time. This is opposed to your Republican caucus, which all thinks the same and marches in lockstep like North Korean soldiers parading in front of Kim Jong Il and has purged all independent thinking from its ranks. Which is why the percentage of Americans who agree with them is swiftly shrinking.

Who watches Morning Joe?

Although, Mika’s tits are looking more “perky,” these days.

kewlguy42069 December 9, 2009 at 9:44 pm

Mr Blifil December 9, 2009 at 10:01 pm

That is all. And he’s not even trying to hide it.

The only thing more non-sensical than Michael Steele, here (and, he’s actually rather coherent), is Juli’s attempt to explain that. And I say that with love. This post was a mess. lol

drpangloss December 10, 2009 at 3:42 am

Maths are hard. Wiggigtty wiggity wack. Dope son. Dynomite!

Can a playa get a 20 seat majority in the hizzy!
