The Scarcely Notable Michael Steele

There's almost nothing worth knowing or thinking about the new chairman of the Wide Stance party, Michael Steele.

One might take note of the fact that he's African-American, and therefore vaults his party from being an entity of, by, and for white people to a party of, by, and for white people that's nominally headed by the one active African-American party member they could find. That's barely worth noting.

It's probably worth noting that Michael Steele is among the troglodytes who led the Wide Stance convention in a chant of "drill, baby, drill" last Fall:



Could the Wide Stance have drill-baby-drilled deeper into the depths of wingnut lunacy and picked someone worse? Surely. This is plenty deep enough.
