Rush Limbaugh Rules Their World

Wow.  One of the RNC’s three black members (they have three???) wants Michael Steele to step down as RNC Chair for committing the unpardonable sin of dissing Rush Limbaugh and, apparently, being too black:

In an e-mail to fellow RNC members obtained by The Hill, Dr. Ada Fisher, North Carolina’s national committeewoman, said Steele is “eroding confidence” in the GOP and that members of his transition team should encourage him to step aside. Fisher added Steele’s personal e-mail address to the e-mail.

I don’t want to hear anymore [sic] language trying to be cool about the bling in the stimulus package or appealing to D.L. Hughley and blacks in a way that isn’t going to win us any votes and makes us frankly appear to many blacks as quite foolish,” Fisher wrote.

Fisher, who is one of three black members of the national committee, backed South Carolina GOP Chairman Katon Dawson, whom Steele edged out in the final round of voting to win the chairmanship in late January. She has voiced repeated opposition to Steele, sending dozens of e-mails to committee members even after Steele won election slamming him for any number of chips that have fallen awry.


“Limbaugh has already promised that ‘His Conservatives’ won’t be giving to the RNC. I would suggest to you that that is a real bet,” Fisher wrote. “If we can’t raise money and continue to allow the alienation of the few varifiable [sic] red states remaining, we are foolish.”

Hey, if the RNC wants someone really Rush-friendly, how about Chip Saltsman, the guy who sent all the RNC members a complementary CD of Rush Limbaugh’s greatest hits, including “Barack The Magic Negro,” when he was running for chair?

Instead of having a debate over whether Rush Limbaugh or Michael Steele is the head of the GOP, how much fun would it be to have a debate about whether Rush or one of his dittoheads is the head of the GOP?  As much of a jackass as Michael Steele is, he does have a different and slightly less repellent vision for his party than Rush does, as well as providing the illusion of inclusivity.

But if the RNC replaces Steele with Saltsman, or even just another right-wing white Friend Of Rush, that would pretty much vaporize the last of the GOP’s plausible deniability that it’s not the party of bigotry and hate.  Their base would be ecstatic, but everyone else in the country would just be repelled.
