New Michael Steele ‘The Streets And Their Environs’ Catchphrase Right On Cue


Michael Steele! Just minutes ago, your Wonkette Editor urged David Simon to write Michael Steele some more material already, and look! Today on Today, Meredith Viera’s like, “You should have been fired, multiple times a day, every day, for the past year or so. Talk to me about this.” Michael Steele responds: “Brother still here.” IT’S JUST LIKE A REALIST NOVEL. Twelve Emmys for Michael Steele. (One Daytime Emmy for tipster “John M.”) [YouTube]

    The 1/256 part of me that is black is profoundly embarrassed.

  • memzilla

    Leadah of da phat group, “(Can’t) Run RNC.”

    Say, you know who else had a last name that meant “steel” in his language… Сталин!

  • memzilla

    [re=489017]memzilla[/re]: Michael Steele ate my close tag.

  • Norbert

    Why is Meredith Viera racist against toast?

  • PartyMart

    My favorite part about Brotha Steele is (and there are so many to choose from) the few times when Barack Obama has referenced him, either directly in his presence or otherwise (see: WH Correspondents Dinner). I dont think he’s ever happier than when he’s egging on the Chairman with fake “brotherman” talk. It seems to amuse him hugely. Like the coolest kid in school high-fiving the downs syndrome kid in the hallway. ‘Course, that analogy makes the Pres. sound like a dick (albeit a cool one.)

    [re=489019]memzilla[/re]: He likes it! Hey Mikey!

  • freakishlystrong

    I’m a blue-eyed, blond, Irish/Scottish mixed female, and I’m more of a brutha
    than this honky.

  • Noodle Salad

    “Well, Meredith, I represent a party that stands for incompetent leadership, smugly awful planning, and mixed messaging. So, clearly, I will be here for some time, even though I have no idea what will happen this year. What. Up.”

  • Gumboz1953

    He’s her brother? Han Solo will be so relieved.

  • engulfedinflames

    A credit to his race?

  • Sleeves

    I had it all shuffled-up for brotherhood:

    Meredith Viera: Could you tell Sean Hannity? Is that you could tell?!
    Michael Steele: Hold me.

  • bitchincamaro

    Aiiight!

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    Wiggah, please.

  • Sleeves

    [re=489041]Sleeves[/re]: Michael Steele ate my who.

  • contentsunderpressure

    I’m surprised, really amazed actually, that he hasn’t worked in a Jimmie Walker “Kid-a-Dy-no-mite” reference.

    But the day is young.

  • Ducksworthy

    Please Juli, that’s enough of this idiot for awhile. Its not like there aren’t plenty of other idiots out there. How about trowing some Sarah Palin or John Boner?

  • Lascauxcaveman

    The tone of Meredith’s voice indicates she can barely disguise her amused contempt for the guy. I think I want to bone her.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    You guys laugh all you want. If I was stranded in some inner-city “hood,” I know who I’d want with me to keep it real with the locals. Chairman Steele and Mitt “Who Let The Dogs Out” Romney.

  • Neilist

    Tap dancing. I want him to start tap dancing. Ideally, in a men’s room.

  • Diana Davies

    So how come this Steele dude thinks he can go on TV and talk all black and everything.

  • Zulu

    He cant have any cred in the hood. Brotha dont play the saxophone!

  • Berkeley Bear

    [re=489092]Zulu[/re]: Or chase chubby white chicks, if I catch your drift.

  • Sleeves

    [re=489073]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Mitt “The Gimp of Green Glove” Romney in that scenario…

  • Jim89048

    Near. Brother is still near.

  • sezme

    Brother still still here?

  • steve

    “Brother’s still here” because “You can’t spoil my juice.” “Honest injun.” Michael Steele is like Bill Hicks + Andy Kaufman.

  • FreshCliches

    With all due respect to Paul Mooney:

    Nigga, please.
