Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From RNC chairman Michael Steele, who seems to be making a habit of saying dumbass things:

“The problem that we have with this president is that we don’t know him,” he said. “He was not vetted, folks. … He was not vetted, because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office. ‘Oh gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that? Gee, wouldn’t it make all of our liberal guilt just go away? We can continue to ride around in our limousines and feel so lucky to live in an America with a black president.’ Okay that’s wonderful, great scenario, nice backdrop. But what does he stand for? What does he believe? … So we don’t know. We just don’t know.”

So why didn’t the press fall in love with you when you ran for office, Michael? You’re even more black than Obama.
