Michael Steele Quotes Cole Porter To Gay San Franciscans

  at least he didn't call it 'frisco'

Fool! Those gay little dogs are beloved by Brooklyn liberals, not San Francisco liberals!Did you know that in San Francisco Republicanism is not (yet) punishable by literal, physical death? Social death, sure, that goes without saying, you will be mocked and derided and nobody will have gay sex with you (or if they do they will make fun of you about it, later). And yet these brave souls soldier on, content to know that they are making the world a better place. Yesterday, they were rewarded with what surely would have been the request they’d have given to the “Make A Wish” Foundation, if they were dying of cancer: a visit from Michael Steele!

Included in the sad group of Republicans who gathered for the pep talk were John Dennis, who is running against Nancy Pelosi for Congress! Michael Steel was surely proud to discover that Dennis was against racism, though possibly less enthused about him being against the Iraq and Afghan wars. Still, Dennis can count on national GOP support in his quest to take on the party’s worst enemy, right?

“I think we’ll create our own success,” he said. “And then they’ll be with us.”

Then Steele said “It’s time to let you do that voodoo that you do very, very well,” which apparently “met with nods of approval, and, in a few cases, nodding eyelids,” whatever that means. Really, the only “voodoo” the San Francisco Republicans know how to do is lose election after election, but whatever, how much time could he really waste on these people, do you even know how many lesbian bondage clubs there are in this city?

    Hold it! Hold it! Hold it! What the hell is that shit? I meant a song. A real song. something like.. Swing Low… Sweet Chaaaariooooot…

    Don’t know that one, huh?

  2. BadKitty

    Voodoo? Michael Steele is obviously a heretic and a sinner as well as (glancing around furtively and whispering) “a Black“. His future with the GOP is doomed.

  3. WhatTheHeck

    Its official now. The republicans have consorted with the witchcraft to stick pins in Nancy dolls.

  4. user-of-owls

    Then Steele said “It’s time to let you do that voodoo that you do very, very well,”

    Funny, he said the exact same thing on a recent visit to quake-ravaged Haiti.

  5. JMP

    By quoting a gay Broadway songwriter who’s been dead for decades and now primarily loved by the olds, Steele was just trying to appeal to the Republican base and San Franciscans at the same time.

  6. M Lite

    Yeah, Michael Steele hates RINOs…maybe…so this guy is on his own? Does the GOP endorse voodoo?

  7. Manos: Hands of Fate

    Yeah, it’s too bad Dan White flipped out, he could have made a strong candidate.

  8. AnglRdr

    He really did say that, didn’t he? Sometimes with Steele, it’s hard to know where the line is between what is coming out of his mouth and what is paraphrased.

    How do democrats keep losing to these clowns, by the way? Seriously. It’s almost as if we as a nation take pride in our stupid.

  9. Geogre

    “Dee Camp Town Ladies? No, no.”

    I’m so glad that Michael Steele knows music, because he is the entertainment director for the Republican Party, while, apparently, Boner is the fund raiser, or Dick’s Army.

  10. Monsieur Grumpe

    [re=606478]JMP[/re]:
    Yeah, and he picked up the coveted Haitian Voodoo voters as well. Steele is a genius.

  11. proudgrampa

    Sometimes, I think Steele just keeps hanging on because, really, after this job, where else could he possibly find a new one???

  12. JMP

    [re=606471]BadKitty[/re]: Looking at the quote from the John Dennis, Steele is not the only one. “I think we’ll create our own success,” he said. “And then they’ll be with us.” Hm, what does one group of heathens believe “will be with you” that can use to magically create success? That’s right, the Force; he’s one of those pagan Jedi.

  13. SayItWithWookies

    No bondage strip clubs,
    No “paint the town” –
    There are no secrets
    On my expense account –
    Ain’t misbehavin’
    Savin’ my per diem.

  14. Neilist

    [re=606480]Manos: Hands of Fate[/re]: “Yeah, it’s too bad Dan White flipped out, he could have made a strong candidate.”

    Campaign Slogans?

    “Dan White: A Straight Shooter!”

    “White: Man For San Francisco!”

    “Dan White: Time For A John Wilkes Booth, Not A Wilkes Bashford!” [That's a SF reference that you East Coast Pinkos are not going to get.]

    “White: That IS A Gun In His Pants!”

    [But more seriously: Speaking of “gay Republicans”: (1) Uncle Tom Steele is quoting Cole Porter? (2) That small, yapping dog?; (3) Has anyone ever actually seen (the alleged) “Mrs. Steele”?

    Hmmmmmmmm?

  15. rev_matt_y

    [re=606486]AnglRdr[/re]: “It’s almost as if we as a nation take pride in our stupid.”

    Almost as if? Are you new to this planet or something? “Real” ‘merkins are aggressively and PROUDLY ignorant.

  16. sati demise

    correction: those dogs are popular in Boston.
    [re=606547]Jim89048[/re]:
    they cant fire him because of the affirmative actions.

  17. legalize everything

    San Francisco lesbian bondage clubs would probably have ACTUAL lesbians and not the slutty, insecure, attention-seeking girls that these frat-tards usually get to kiss each other. They may want to save their donor’s money on this one.

  18. Lascauxcaveman

    [re=606520]Neilist[/re]: Neillist, usually when you’re onto anything gun-related you’re as boring as shit. But THAT was very LOL-oriented. Pat on the back, buddy.

  19. OhCrapIHaveACrushOnSarahPalin

    There aren’t any lesbian clubs at all in this city, much less lesbian bondage clubs. You must go to Oakland for that.

  20. Carrabuda

    [re=606486]AnglRdr[/re]: “It’s almost as if we as a nation take pride in our stupid.” Imagine.

  21. Neilist

    [re=606811]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Actually, I strive for “boring as shit,” but rarely reach that exaulted height. And I live for your praise.

    [re=606853]Enslave the Whales[/re]: “Sic semper fratris Brooks est!”

  22. Bomama

    if the energy here was actually channeled into productive action – instead of trying out for who can be the snarkiest fuck around…boring…
