Michael Steele’s No Good, Low Down, Rotten, Very Bad Week

When the party you are chairman of is compared to the Nazi Party, you should consider challenging the statement.

A lot of readers sent me a link to Michelle’s post on Steele, Hughley, and the Nazis.

Good Lord did Steele really botch this interview. I thought he was an articulate spokesman.

Hughley tells Steele the Republican Convention looked like a Nazi party gathering in Germany.

Steele’s response? Well, here’s the unedited transcript from CNN covering that portion of the interview:

HUGHLEY: Well, Michael, I agree. I’m telling you, if it were the sign alone — in other words, the tenets of the Republican Party are amazing and they seem warm and welcome. But when I watch it be applied — like you didn’t have to go much further than the Republican National Convention.

STEELE: Agreed.

HUGHLEY: It literally look like Nazi Germany. It literally did. I make that point, not only are we not welcome — not only are we not welcome, but they don’t even care what we think. And that …

STEELE: Well, I’m here now

EPIC. FAIL.
