Michael Steele's Ongoing Quest to Get Fired

Human Rights

…RNC Chair Michael Steele says that Republicans need to stop "slammin' and rammin'" on Sotomayor, acknowledge the "historic aspect" of her nomination, and make a "cogent, articulate argument" against her.


Good luck with all that.

Lest you think that Steele was actually motivated by principle, he justified his admonishment by noting that the "liberal media" isn't on Republicans' side, so they'll "get painted as a party that's against the first Hispanic woman" nominated to the Supreme Court. See, it's not problematic that they are against her on the basis that she's a Latina woman, but it is problematic when the media actually frames it that way.
