Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Red Zeppelin

    He seems to have his hands in totally different places with the women. MC Steele do love him some white wimmins!

  • TGY

    Needs more blingie. I’ll leave it to the rest of you.

  • AxmxZ

    So that’s where all the white women are at.

  • memzilla

    Hey, you know who else had a mustache and liked to pose with children?

  • pampl

    Oh man, if his base sees these pictures of him touching their womenfolk, it’s gonna be trouble

  • Electric Zen

    I love photos 3, 4, 5, where the young lady is getting progressively more creeped out and wondering, “Is this what it’s like to be Mrs. Steele?”

  • Disco

    Photo eight. Men do not make funny poses together.

  • bluetom00

    Riddle me this: why are chubby blonde chicks _always_ Republicans? Like, across the board.

  • Prommie

    I would hit the thin brunnette, and the blonde, and those only. Thank you.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=476541]Electric Zen[/re]: “Relax, honey — it’s not wrong if there’s an American flag in the room.”

  • FamilyLost

    Why is there an intern that seems to be the age of 7 and another that looks about 40?

  • catsquatch

    This gallery amply demonstrates how far the RNC has fallen. There is not a single intern, of either gender, that I, even with my laughably low standards, would want to fuck. Even from behind.

  • Snarkalicious

    I know you can’t see it here, but just off camera, there’s a copy of the Governator’s “How To Be Frisky With Female Coworkers and Things of This Nature”. Do to the relative lack of ass-grab in relation to grabasstickness displayed, I would put the chairman at about chapter 3.

  • slappypaddy

    wow, he’s taller than all those people. i didn’t know he was so tall.

  • Aurelio

    If you go to the actual site, there are MORE PICS. And the last one is definitely child porn. Do not save it on your computer.

  • Hamster

    [re=476541]Electric Zen[/re]: 3, 4, & 5… where is the rest of that series? I’ll bet she takes her shirt off in #6

  • snideinplainsight

    That’s just frightening. I have my nightmares lined up for the weekend now, thanks.

  • charlesdegoal

    I think the women are generally smiling more because they fantasize about his prowess, whereas the men are somewhat uncomfortable with his size, both actual and imagined. Even the token Negro seems ill at ease.

  • P Drizzle

    Hey, why’s that dark-skinned guy gotta hog every shot?

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    It’s a toss up between photo 43 and 49 on most pathetic photo.

  • Joehoya

    [re=476551]catsquatch[/re]: Not even that first blonde? I’d smash it. Your standards may be higher than you give yourself credit for.

  • shadowMark

    Someday these photos will be known as “exhibits 1 through 9.”

    Does teh Wonkett have hug photos coming up, Ken snuggling Jim, Jim snuggling Riley, Sara snuggling Juli, Sara snuggling Juli…

  • freakishlystrong

    What. The. Fuck. It’s happened. I hate Republics so much now that I can actually see it on them. Like taint.

  • magic titty

    He totally rubbed the bone against the brunette in the white shirt.

  • freakishlystrong

    Ugh…the group, (grope?), shot at the end. So young and hip and fun those wingtards are!

  • Prommie

    Hey, number 17, its Jaws, from the James Bond movie. For realz.

  • Jumping Jim

    He’s a Republican politician.

    The boys have more to be afeered.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Mike Steele gropes chubby white girls. Good for him.

    But watch yo’ head! It’s O-Reo and TeaBag Ice! Chillin!

  • Terry

    [re=476524]Red Zeppelin[/re]:

    He’s obviously actually straight and not a closeted self hating gay man. That’s why he doesn’t get along with the mainstream GOP’ers.

  • Hamster

    OH SHIT, fist bump in round 2!

  • Mista Eko

    Michael Steele doing the Kawaii Asian Tourist pose? Given that they probably had a hand in GOP.com, are we sure that these RNC interns weren’t a group of very clever and very subtle trolls?

  • Terry

    #16 features a terrorist fist bump between Steele and a hobbit.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    I think he just wants to show that Tiger’s not the only brother than can get white chicks.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    I always knew Michael Steele was “fresh”, as in “fly.” What’s the lingo the kids are using now?

  • catsquatch

    [re=476574]Joehoya[/re]: All the women suffer from a bad case of Mountain Face, endemic in Appalachia. Allright. Maybe from behind.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    No pics of Michael Steele and some random dude doing the Kid ‘n Play? EPIC FAIL.

  • Crank Tango

    [re=476574]Joehoya[/re]: yeah there are several I’d plow.

  • Terry

    #41 looks like every photo of a candidate and his wife, who gazed adoringly at him. ‘cept it’s a male intern.

  • Marilyn

    Cmon cmon cmon, we want wonkette editor MAD LIBs for these shots! Don’t deprive us, we love you.

  • vespula maculata

    Now are you ready to stop complaining about all the Ambien ads on TV…?

  • Jerk Cade

    Moo, baby! Moo!

    and Steele could lose a little weight, too.

  • soundoff
  • Lascauxcaveman

    [re=476546]Prommie[/re]: You’re nuts, man. Half those gals are eminently bangable. Especially that skinny one in the mint blouse and WTF white slacks, towards the very end. Yum.

  • bloatedwhitetruck

    oh..oh…….I spotted a terrorist fist jab with a tard? And what ever happened to Christian side hugs, Mr. Groper ?

  • queeraselvis v 2.0


  • Suds McKenzie

    What children’s party was this?

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    I like number 15; that dude is the future of the GOP.

  • timmy_the_tooth

    I love how the photographer was so smart about the javascript blocker for downloading his photos but then, you know, totally forgot that I can still print screen and then provides links to every photo in huge def.

    Typical GOP planning.

  • Aurelio

    [re=476615]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: That is JAIL BAIT.

  • catsquatch
  • proudgrampa

    [re=476619]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: All those pics are gay. Jebus.

  • Rumproast
  • Sharkey

    [re=476606]soundoff[/re]: This has to be some kind of CGI magic. That cannot be real life. It just can’t.

  • catsquatch

    [re=476626]Aurelio[/re]: When she assumes her post-pubertal form she’ll look more like this.

    Hey, off topic, but in some posts wingnuts will argue that Medicare has a higher denial rate than private insurers. I’m sure there’s a reasonable explanation (or they’re lying) but I can’t track it down. Just wondering. Not trolling, honest!

  • Uncle Glenny

    [re=476628]catsquatch[/re]: Here:


  • Voyou Charmant

    This guy looks like a stable young man, and no one should worry about him.


  • davesnothere

    Sweet sufferin Jeebus, is that how they “roll”, over there?

  • TGY

    [re=476620]Suds McKenzie[/re]: Yeah, basically. They are all infants. So young to be touched in the special place by the Republican party.


    That Michael Steele is gargantuan, or else they have been hiring very very tiny interns (like the blonde in the black dress in #6&7). My vote for the mint green girl!

  • Extemporanus
  • Darkness
  • Hamster

    [re=476639]Extemporanus[/re]: Nope, there is nothing conservative about the ass on that one. Is she a butterface? …undecided.

  • timmy_the_tooth

    “Steele” in Love
    after all these years!


  • Darkness

    [re=476645]Voyou Charmant[/re]: He has a nice smile. You can’t fault someone for their ancestors working in obscure castle laboratories in south eastern Europe, you know.

  • Ducksworthy

    [re=476639]Extemporanus[/re]: Thank you for ruining my lunch.

    Dear Not Trolling ,Honest:

    Casual sex and computer games.
    Also Michael Steele. Maybe Herring.
    And if you remember it’s “with feathers”
    and not “in feathers” you won’t
    be bummed all weekend. The years
    18-24 are happening years so
    do the casual sex while you can,
    kidnap Meghan, rob banks,
    but don’t over do the Red Bull.

    Keep the photo in your wallet or purse and show it to Libruls to prove you ain’t no racist.

    Man the Blacks On Blondes website has really gone downhill.

  • finallyhappy

    who is the little girl and the older white bald guy? and the crazy poses in some photos?

  • Lascauxcaveman

    [re=476626]Aurelio[/re]: Mint-girl is jailbait? Hmmmm. Come to think of it, you might be right. Republican AND not-yet-obese usually means they’re under 12, doesn’t it?

  • Hedley Lamar

    Looks like he’s goin’ all Jeff Gannon on the menfolk.

  • raysmuckles

    Is it any coincidence that Blingee is acting up at the moment?

  • WestEdEd


    Either that is the kind of all muffin tops, or she needs to rethink the money belt

  • timmy_the_tooth

    [re=476682]Extemporanus[/re]: OMG, the ani-gif is priceless.

    I actually laughed out loud

  • southerngeek

    I’m gonna go ahead and take the rest of the day off, because it’s all downhill from here.

    Either that is the king of all muffin tops, or she needs to rethink the money belt

  • Snork

    Jerry Lewis called–he wants his *special* kids back.

  • snideinplainsight

    Aaaaaand now you need a password. You people, you were just having too much fun!!

  • jmfleetwood

    I got all the screen grabs I needed before the password protection. Anyone else?

  • Servo

    Hey, kids! Get your picture taken with Mickey!

  • proudgrampa

    Password protected now. Freakin’ hilarious!!!

  • Flanders

    [re=476551]catsquatch[/re]: That’s probably why you’ve never ben laid.

  • Jim89048

    I tried typing in the universal password (*********) (that’s trucknutz, morans) and still odellphotos.com still won’t let me view. My Friday is ruined.

  • What Fresh Hell is This?

    But he does have a great photo of an Obama impersonator doing a George Bush impersonation:

  • Prommie

    [re=476642]Robotmonster[/re]: Maybe because of gubmint efforts to prevent fraud? I.e., there are more attempts at fraud in medicare, so more claims are rightly denied when the fraud is detected?

  • Flanders

    [re=476642]Robotmonster[/re]: Well, you’re looking in the wrong places, might be your problem. I’d head over to Redstate, Huffpo or Politico if you are looking for answers. Honest!

  • Prommie

    [re=476644]Uncle Glenny[/re]: Thats Lyle Fucking Lovett’s family! Holy Shit!

    Not to be a troll but off topic, I think you’ve mistaken this a another blog:

  • catsquatch

    [re=476757]Flanders[/re]: If by “laid” you mean rammed up the pooper by a lantern jawed mountain slag wearing a strap-on mooslim christ-a-mas dildo why yes. I believe you’re correct.

  • Flanders

    [re=476938]catsquatch[/re]: I just learned that particular act is called ‘pegging’. Thanks, wonkett!

  • catsquatch

    [re=477014]Flanders[/re]: I love me some Dan Savage. This is one of my favorite essays of his from This American Life. In it he shreds Disney and “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”.

  • mookworthjwilson

    [re=476764]What Fresh Hell is This?[/re]: If you aren’t kidding, that’s actually Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown…

    Dear Jim. You have delivered the Witch a fantastic Xmas gift. The Witch is cackling with glee! Thank you Jeebus! I mean Jim. Love, the WW.

    Re: No. 5.
    Keep alert for the sexting.

    No. 7 sprouted three inches. A swift goose could do that to a modest young lady. Thank you, Mike Enzi.

    No. 9 is there on an Albero Gonzales fellowship. Notice the dustpan in his hand. Big tent, indeed. Andale. Arriba.

  • new complexnegro

    Somebody has got jungle fever!!!

  • Dolmance

    Before you needed to get a password to see Michael Steele’s Republican site, I was struck by the photos of the average Joe and Joettes depicted there. They all looked like they were born with fetal alcohol syndrome.

    Why do these people look so goddamn weird. I was looking at a picture of Sean Hannity and was struck with the way his eyes looked like they were grafted onto his face from a door mouse.

    Ugliest goddamn people on the planet. And I think it might have something to do with their political affiliations. They’re ugly and nondescript and they pissed off about it big time.

    Maybe if we offered them plastic surgery they’d lighten up a little. Pretty people tend to go Left… At least they usually. Unless they’re with some nasty sex partner that forces them to do otherwise.

  • Aurelio

    [re=477103]Dolmance[/re]: Why do these people look so goddamn weird. I had the same reaction. With very few exceptions, those interns all looked like there was something wrong with them. Then again, I have days when everyone looks like that, including myself when I look in the mirror.

  • leaveskoalrebelalone

    where do you get the password…from steele? what a schmuck!

  • Flanders

    [re=477017]catsquatch[/re]: Hey, thanks for that! I listened to it this morning. Well done.

  • wickedlittledoll

    Password’s probably off-the-hook or hip-hop since Mr. Steele’s so down with the youth culture and all…

  • thefrontpage

    A couple of serious questions:

    1. Who the hell in their right mind wants to get his or her picture taken with Michael “Asshole” Steele?

    2. Why does the RNC have interns?

    3. What do interns do at the RNC? Provide corrections and spin to the latest misinformation and ignorant comments from Steele?

    4. How many of these moron interns is the moron Steele sleeping with?

    5. Political Sex Scandals Betting Pool says the first political sex scandal involving Steele and an intern will occur in February or March, 2010. The scandal will have something to do with some of these idiotic pictures.
