    Michael Steele wins RNC chairmanship race
    Former Maryland Lt. Governor to be first African-American chair

    WASHINGTON - Former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele beat out South Carolina GOP chief Katon Dawson in the sixth round of voting at Fridays Republican National Committee meeting Friday, becoming the first African-American chairman of the party.

    The two Republicans fought for the national party chairmanship Friday after Mike Duncan, former President George W. Bush's hand-picked national GOP chief, abandoned his re-election bid in the fact of dwindling support.

    Duncan's departure ensured a fresh face at the beleaguered GOP's helm as Republicans seek to rebound from back-to-back defeats in national elections that gave Democrats control of Congress and the White House.

    8. Just more pandering...
    The rank and file will love it. It proves they are not racist. They love it when a minority is in a leadership role. It shows everyone how "inclusive" they are. Just as long as the minority knows his or her place and stays there. Remember, they are the party of equality. Just as long as everyone stays in their place.
    Kinda like the way the Democrat Party treats the Homos? :p

    20. all I'll say
    ia the first thing he said had something to do with a house....then he said something about an uncle.
    There was no black friend. The DUmmy just wanted to call Steele an Uncle Tom and not look like the petty racist prick he is.

    15. Day traders should buy shares of Oreo Cookies. There's gonna be run on them!
    It figure the republicans would elect the black guy blacks don't like. They're doomed. The bank was ready to foreclose on his house as he was running for Lt. Governor. The campaign paid him enough to save his house. But I hope he has fun telling his Former Boss Bob Ehrlich (R) where he may and may not speak. Turn about is fair play.

    33. Racism is still racism
    Even when it's directed at someone "we" don't like.

    "Oreo" is a slur, cut it the fuck out please.
    But "Uncle Tom" is okay? :whatever:

    23. I checked over in RW world.
    It is a mixed bag of happy and bewilderment. For some reason some of them think he isn't conservative enough because he is black. Some others are happy because "Steele earned this unlike Obama".

    Well I am off to the shower to decontaminate.

    26. Good Lord. Could the GOP pander any more?
    First Palin because they thought just having a woman on the ticket would equate having Hillary on the ticket.
    Now an African American because the Obama is in the White House.

    The whole thing is just so transparent.

    The good that will probably come from this is that this will probably drive a lot of old school GOP members from the party. I can't wait to see how Limbaugh & Co. spin this.

    And we just know they didn't choose Obama because he's black. Why the media's hardly even mentioned it.

    Looks like conservatives got the better deal! You keep the magic negro and when he and his comrades have taxed you into the poor house, be sure to bitch and moan.
