Quickie: Michele Bachmann Momentarily Becomes a (Magic) Negro in Support of Michael Steele

Michael Steele is, of course, making the rounds at CPAC and assuring everybody that the Republican Party is doing absolutely great and that they shouldn't change a thing. Neat!

My favorite part, though, is that he inspired nutty Michele Bachmann so very much that she magically transformed into a comical parody of a cartoon of a stereotype of a black woman:

As Steele concluded his remarks, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann — the event's moderator — told Steele he was “da man.”

“Michael Steele! You be da man! You be da man,” she said.

They then, presumably, shared a comically large slice of watermelon together for photo-ops and belted out a lusty chorus of "Dixie."

In other words: Michael Steele's "hip-hopification" of the GOP? It's working!

Wow-- she's really "down" with him!

A perfect pair, as guys often say about boobs.

parallel-botany said...

Wow, that's a pretty classy move! Did she also ask if she could touch his hair?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Oh God.
The CNN link was missing, but please tell me she did not call him "da man."
Can it be his efforts to hip-hopitize the GOP are actually starting to work?
What's next, Dick Cheney telling him to shnizzle his dizzle?

I'm sorry, it scans so much better as "You da man!", and while it may have started with black folks (I have a recording of Fats Waller that would seem to verify this), "You da man!" is now associated with drunken frat boys at golf tournaments.

Trust Rep. Bachmann to stick her foot in it anytime there's an open microphone nearby.

Link should be fixed now.

OMG I am so feelin' that Republican Party Slum Love™! Seems like for a non-white or non-guy to have power in the GOP these days, these folks have to be poorly-written sitcom characters. I blame Sarah Palin.

When are we gonna hear Michelle Malkin throw out a 'me so horny'? Fucking disgusting lot of reactionary self-haters, all of them.

Guess that's all better in the long run than the Dick Cheney cartoon super villain M.O.

In d'fence of Michelle, the Mississippi River does wind it's way through Minnesota, so there is a natural spiritual klanship there.

They also have a Swan River - which is close enough to Stephen Foster's banjo pickin opus as to be practically kissing cousins. There surely must be plenty of ol folks at home livin' large along it's shores.

I can't to hear Steele introduced at the next GOP function as "within the house." Of course, hip-hopification will be complete when Republican women are referred to as "bitches" and "hos" (but, but, they're terms of endearment, really).

The irony is that he is the man. He's the leader of the party of the man. Doesn't mean Michelle Bachmann isn't a whole boatload of crazy.

Oh no she di'int!

Karen Zipdrive said...

Egads, I finally heard her utter that line on MSNBC and I thought my head was going to explode.
What a maroon.

Ok, it was bound to happen sooner or later. There's a photo over at ican hascheezburger? that you might be interested in, PSP. It's in the 2/28/09 batch. You'll know it when you see it.
