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]

    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!

    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.)

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

    “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.”

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

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