99 Problems But Michael Steele Ain't One

I love Michael Steele. The new RNC chair is an endless supply of comedy material. Steele pledges to make the Republican Party more hip hop. Didn't they try that and fail with Karl "MC" Rove?

"We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party that stands on principles," Steele told the Washington Times. "But we want to apply them to urban-suburban hip-hop settings."

"It will be avant garde, technically," he said of the new public relations team he's signing on. "It will come to the table with things that will surprise everyone - off the hook." He also added: "I don't do 'cutting-edge.' That's what Democrats are doing. We're going beyond cutting-edge."

I can not see College Republicans in a hip hop club. The exchanges about affirmative action would be painful. Rappers, such as Jay-Z, are huge Barack Obama supporters.

Jay-Z at a post-inauguration concert. I can't imagine Jay-Z or Kanye West performing for John McCain. Neither can the GOP establishment.

"I got 99 problems but a Bush ain't one."
