“Finally, King Achish said to his men, “Must you bring me a madman?”
-1 Samuel 21:14
One would rationally expect that when his people brought him the insane idea of endorsements by a convicted killer and a convicted rapist, Michael Steele would have reacted like Achish. In a further sign that Michael Steele is in need of rehab or a padded cell, the endorsements by Don King and Mike Tyson of his Senate campaign indicate the lunacy or substance abuse of his entire campaign team. Desperate for black endorsements, Steele campaign operatives have stooped to using crackheads as black props in their endorsement press conferences.
Apparently, some of those brothas ain’t clean and are sharing their extra rocks with the campaign staff, or the campaign people are schizophrenics trying to self medicate, because there is no rational explanation for producing two press conferences to showcase these endorsements.
Who in God’s name are these endorsements supposed to sway? White suburban crystal meth addicts? Black Inner city crackheads? Somebody please help me to understand. Steve Gillard is absolutely right, you just can’t make this up. Similarly, Oliver Willis hit the nail on the head when he asserts that by accepting these endorsements, Michael Steele, “spits in the face of black America”. Moreover, Steve Gillard is on point when he advocates that Steele’s opponent Ben Cardin should spread this political manna from heaven to every white republican and independent in the state of Maryland.
The great Kingfish, Huey Long of Louisiana, a liberal populist former Governor and U.S. Senator during the twenties and thirties, used to blanket his impoverished state in campaign circulars during election time. After reading them, the impoverished people would use the circulars as toilet paper. It suited the Kingfish just fine. He wanted the state so covered in literature that nobody could wipe their backside without using a piece of paper with his picture on it.
Ben Cardin would do well to heed the example and nuke Steele day and night with his own manifest ignorance.
