Michael Steele’s Top Priority: Sandwich Time

by Jack Stuef

Pickles? Mayo? Hmm. I have to get this right.“Facing questions about whether he can win a second term as chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele boasted Friday that he has re-shaped the committee from an unwieldy top-down behemoth into an agile grassroots organization with a record of success.” Somebody finally told Michael Steele he should just say he’s done a good job, even if he’s actually fucking everything up. Also Michael Steele and the entire crowd wore red “FIRE PELOSI!” hats, a message Steele announced the GOP will be promoting in a “bus tour,” so it sounds like this was a fun time. But Michael Steele isn’t holding out hope for another term as RNC chair, because he’s too busy concentrating on trying to get that sandwich made the way he likes it. [Peter Hamby]

“And after lunch, I will be focused on taking a giant, bowel-clearing dump. Then I’ll just kill some time daydreaming about the upcoming Happy Hour at TGIFridays.”

It was so hard for him to remember not to ask for the elitist Dijon mustard — you gotta give him credit for that triumph!

White? Or wheat?

THis job, like the coach of the LA Clippers, panders to low-self-esteem types.

Hey, that’s not fair, the reporter set him up! I would only be able to think about lunch too if interviewed by a man named Hamby.

Ham biscuits?

Does club Voyeur have bus parking? Do they get a lot of tour groups all wearing matching hats?

WhatTheHeck August 6, 2010 at 4:18 pm

The GOP themselves will soon be wearing “Fire Steele” hats.

So is “Peter” Hamby the Ham Buscuits of which Lindsey waxes so poetic…?

Shh — Michael Steele needs to focus. Because every time he complains to Grover about the fly in his soup, Grover goes and fucks it up.

It takes bold leadership to resolve the daily chunky vs smooth crisis.

Nothing says “agile grassroots organization” like the purity tests emerging from the tea party wing. And nothing says “grassroots” like the far out reefer madness of a TP’er town hall appearance.

This eating every day thing comes in handy if you ever need to CUT AND RUN, eh Mikey?

Steele knows how to bring the Stupid, doesn’t he?

WriteyWriterton August 6, 2010 at 6:38 pm

…and he will be handed his.

Poor Mikey, he can’t have yummy tacos anymore for lunch.

Maybe it’s a human sandwich? Steele sandwiched between Nikki Halley and some other Rep female who is remotely attractive?

As for running again, has he filled up his Swiss bank account yet? Prepared to retire some place without an extradition treaty?

bago August 6, 2010 at 7:34 pm

Is it an Oreo sandwich?

Oblios Cap August 6, 2010 at 8:14 pm


Oh, Snap!

He wants a hamdwitch. With no dijon, and a side of lies.

Lunch: the RNC repast which precedes the Last Supper. Right now various Republicans are battling to see who can be Judas.

“a 117-city ‘Fire Pelosi!’ bus tour”: all cities happen to be in LegoLand.
