Michael Steele is Beginning to Look Like Malcolm X to Me

If you thought like me that Herman Cain was the strangest black man in the Republican Party, you were wrong. Months ago, when I called Allen West a ‘Walking Anger Management Problem,’ I sensed that he was even more…unique…than that. At the time, he was completely losing his shit over the diminutive, post-cancer chemotherapy patient Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The optics may have been bad, but he really had no choice. She is a woman and she questioned his authoritah! He is A Real Man.

But remember this? He got mad at NBC, too:

West has denied NBC News’s reports of his involvement with the gang, and recently told Hotline On Call that the story can’t be true because the Outlaws do not “accept blacks, Jews or gays” into their ranks.

The West campaign has responded to the reports, denying their veracity and accusing NBC of a biased reporting:

“In what can only be described as a political hatchet job by the liberal mainstream media, NBC News – through reporter Lisa Myers – made an outrageous claim that LTC(R) Allen West condones criminal activity. Myers clearly has an agenda to try and stop good people like Allen who oppose the far left policies that are wreaking havoc upon our country.”

Turns out he just gets mad. Ask him about Herman Cain:

Scott Hennen: Is it an attack on a black conservative because he’s a black conservative?

Congressman West: Oh come on, I mean you know I was the only black member of a white supremacist motorcycle gang, so liberals and there are certain others I would say even within our party that are not comfortable with strong black conservative voices, and I would say there are people that feel very threatened by that because we do stand on principle. We are someone or entities that are out of the mainstream, if you want to call it that, so liberals are definitely going to come at you.

So I guess Herman Cain is not the only black man in the GOP who would get a special kind of thrill if somebody called him “Cornbread.” Or something. This is why we can’t have nice things, like participatory democracy. It is also why the following is all over the interwebs these days:  “2012–It’s Not Just an Election, It’s a Restraining Order.”

One thing is sure, we are going to have to stop cracking jokes about Michele Malkin winning the award for being the white supremacist with the darkest skin.


How to act like one Conservative butt

Important lessons for people who like to be important.

Last Sunday, NBC put together a cheeseball golf montage promoting its US Open. Take a gander at it, if you like, and realize how golf is like a tank battle at The Smithsonian, or something:

Golfing is totally. Completely. Anyway, the montage cutting and pasting extended too liberally to the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. People went berserk:

NBC Apologizes For Omitting ‘Under God’ From Pledge of Allegiance During Golf Broadcast
By NEWSCORE | June 19 2011

. . In a statement during the broadcast, NBC commentator Dan Hicks said, “We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this US Open Championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time.

“Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

Thousands called and e-mailed NBC. What an opportunity, eh? Let the learning begin.

Lesson One: The William Shatner Method. No one calls it over-acting when you’re actually Captain Kirk:

My household and family is NOW FORBIDDEN to ever watch NBcFua or “No body cares for you anymore” or whatever the station might be called from here forward! Too bad for the best Brian Williams broadcast, everyone there at NBcFua will pay for your leftist stupidity.

All media elitists need to go to Afghanistan to fight for that wasteful misuse of your freedom of speech…You have squandered your credibility with the American Public on this single despicable act.

No, never to ever, ever watch these guys again, ever.

Lesson Two: America is a house of bondage. Miss Anthony notes your mistakes, and now you will do Miss Anthony’s will:

“NBC must remedy this abuse by airing a series of public service announcement(s) with the entire Pledge of Allegiance,” read an e-mail blast sent Tuesday from council President Tony Perkins.

“Please join me in contacting NBC and demanding that the network air a daily public service announcement with the entire Pledge of Allegiance.”

I’m sure NBC will forgo piles of ad revenue to broadcast to the nation the same silly pledge your kids say everyday to a blackboard. And the National Broadcasting Corporation will do this forever. Why? Because they’ve been bad (tee-hee!).

. . he said he would also like to see NBC produce a program explaining the history of the pledge and why “under God” was inserted in the first place.

Lesson Three: Microscopes are for scientists, fish eye lenses for patriots. They make for uppity-vision transbloogerated by the rods and cones of bullshit. Lecture folks about the reason you live, or why Dad died:

“One Nation” “Under God” “Indivisible” THIS is how I served this country along with all my fellow veterans. NEVER forget that NBC!


. . he found the use of military images with the pledge omission particularly galling. “As a veteran I stood for the pledge and I stood for all of the pledge,” the retired Marine said.

That’s why Marines do what they do? I never knew. I figured it was the Constitution, or defense. Something else.

Pvt. Bumble: [breathless] Cap’n Perkins!

Capt. Perkins: Bumble?

Pvt. Bumble: Muslims! They’ve fixed bayonets and are charging the installation!

Capt. Perkins: You don’t say.

Pvt. Bumble: They’ll be over the walls any second! As acting commander of the Boomlaka Laka Atomic Bombs Pillbox, what are your orders?

Capt. Perkins: Get military intelligence on the horn, Bumble. Now take this down: STOP. BEGIN. STOP. HOW. STOP. STANDS. STOP. THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE? STOP. THE ENTIRE ONE? STOP.

Pvt. Bumble: Ow.

Capt. Perkins: Ouch.
