Steele Plays the Race Card

I'm so shocked.

Steele was asked if he felt he has a smaller margin of error than others because he's black.

"The honest answer is yes. It just is," the former Maryland lieutenant governor said. "Barack Obama has a slimmer margin than others."

"But you take that as part of the nature of it," Steele added. "It's more because you're not somebody they know. ... Not old-boy network oriented. ... My view on politics is much more grassroots oriented ... so I tend to, you know, come at it a little bit stronger, a little bit more street-wise. That's rubbed some feathers the wrong way."

I don't give him a smaller margin because he's black. I give him one because he's a whiney bitch who cannot seem to focus his energies on his actual job, raising money and getting Republicans elected, because of his personal distractions and hyper-sensitivity to criticism.

He cannot find the backbone to simply stand up and say "this was a mistake, it was improper, we dealt with it. It won't be tolerated now or in the future." Instead he has to cry like a girl that it's just so unfair for me, just like it is for Obama.

Nope. It's just a bunch of Republicans who can't respect his "streetwise" managerial style.

To which I reply (with a look of astonishment on my pretty face): Are. You. F'n. Kidding Me? You cannot take this heat and deflect it with a little, I don't know, actual leadership, you have to resort to this? In case you haven't noticed, moron, the entire tea-party movement and conservative activism is being painted with the "racist" charge. Not exactly the best time ever to make this suggestion to soothe your little hurt feelings. Grow a pair already.

I've had enough of this guy.
