Rush to Mikie: Back to the Plantation, Sambo!
Rush talked to the GOP Chairman like a runaway slave
I’s sorry Massa Rush; I just plumb lost ma mind!
Backed up against the wall by D.L, Hugley, the popular comedian turned talk show host on CNN’s “D.L. Hugley Breaks the News,” the newly elected Chairman of the GOP Michael Steele showed a little balls and told the truth about Rush Limbaugh. When Hugely confronted him with a fact that seems obvious to everybody but him: “Rush Limbaugh is the de-facto head of the Republican Party,” Steel went ape and forgot his place. “I am the de-facto head of the Republican Party!” he protested, “Rush is an entertainer”… and he called Rush’s rap “incendiary and ugly.”
When Rush heard that their House Negro had wandered off the plantation and forgot his place – which is likely to happen when they let the servants pretend to be in charge – he publicly chastised Steele and literally told him to stay in his place, a place which Rush clearly defined. And before one could say “When the cats form Nacky Sacky make the wicky wacky woo,” Steel had slepped forward and without a smidgen of shame assumed the lips to posterior position that has become the standard posture of Republican leaders when dealing with that verbose idiot Rush Limbaugh.
First it was Governor Mark Sandford, from the economically distressed state of South Carolina, who said “anybody who wants the President to fail is an idiot!” When Rush gave him a dirty look he apologized faster than Hoppalong Cassidy could draw his gun! Then there was Georgia Congressman Phil Gingrey, who said that people like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh could say anything because they were not responsible for addressing the needs of a constituency. The Congressman not only apologized; he called up Rush’s show, confessed the error of his ways on air, and begged forgiveness from the rotund bloviator.
Hence the correct posture for elected Republican leaders vis a vis the Grand Poobah of the Republican Party was well established before he put Michael Steele, the titular head of the Republican Party, in his place. So it came as no surprise to see that grinning coon running in triple time to bow down and kiss Limbaugh’s big fat funky butt! Hardball host Chris Matthews got it right: “The Republicans know what time it is; it’s Rush hour! Good luck taking the Party Hip Hop Mikie.
