Michael Steele, the not-so-de facto head of the Republican Party is determined to keep up the hilarity after Sarah Palin.
Since then, Steele has compared Republicans to alcoholics on a 12-step program and called Rush Limbaugh “incendiary and ugly,” though he has apologized to the conservative radio host. Steele has also promised to give the party a “hip-hop makeover” that would be “off the hook” and would attract even “one-armed midgets.”
“And I’m not gonna jump up and down and beat people upside the head about it, and tell gays that they’re wrong for wanting to aspire to that, and all of that craziness,” he continued.
Think Progess' Faiz Shakir on MSNBC:
Of course, since he's already been parodied on SNL (see below), he will absolutely win over the Republican Party - just think of Sarah Palin!And just think how much he'll be adored by David Letterman and Conan O'Brien! He'll be able to fill the big CV (Comedy Vacuum) left by Dubya!When asked how long he thought Steele would last as chairman, Faiz said, “I hope he stays around forever. … He’s great for comic relief.”
