New Republican National Committee Chairman

The Republican National Committee, after six rounds of bitter infighting and voting, has chosen Maryland's Lt. Governor Michael Steele as its new chairman.

Because, you know, that whole "picking someone from a group you've traditionally screwed over" thing worked out so well for them in the Presidential election.

This display of tokenism bold initiative is sure to convince droves of African-American voters to defect en masse to the Republican Party.

Just to calm the far right of the party, according to CNN, Steele stated:

"I'm proud to say I'm a conservative, have been, always will be, So this notion that I'm a moderate is slightly overblown and, quite frankly, a lie."

In other news, Republican governors, including Alaska governor Sarah Palin, are begging Republican Senators and House members, who voted nearly unanimously (and unsuccessfully) against the economic stimulus package that President Obama is touting, to support it.

I had to laugh when I saw this in the paper this morning. Can't you see some GOP top dog? "We gotta get ourselves a black guy!!"

Lets start up some sort of a contest, "Name the next minority to get a top job in the GOP"

My vote is for Hispanics, cause I was first!

I'll only think he's important if he shoves a stake in Karl Rove's heart sending him to hell with his buddy Lee Atwater.

Stephen Colbert hit the nail directly on the head regarding that stimulus package. How many of the people who voted against it are going to turn around and go home and rail against using any of that money in their districts?

I can almost hear them saying in that angry Republican way

"Oh YEAH? Well we have a black guy TOO!"
