    Question Michael Steele to GOP: No 'slammin and rammin' Sonia Sotomayor

    WASHINGTON (CNN) Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele suggested Friday that Republicans hold off on "slammin' and rammin'" Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor and instead recognize the "historic aspect" of her nomination.
    While guest hosting the Bill Bennett radio show on Friday morning, Steele said he was "excited" to see a Hispanic woman in this position.
    "The trap here for the GOP I think is enormous," Steele said. "And I know that a lot of folks want to do the knee jerk you know let's start slammin' and rammin', but I think we really need to take a step back from this and deal with two things, one, the historic aspect of it, acknowledge it, but then move on to the substance of the conversation about what this woman believes."

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh took an opposite turn from the party chairman, saying that the "way get promoted in the Barack Obama administration" is "by hating white people." Limbaugh also suggested that her nomination would be like picking former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke for the position.
    "I think she's disqualified herself. Not only does she lack the often-discussed appropriate judicial temperament, it's worse than that. She brings a form of bigotry or racism to the court," Limbaugh said. He added, "How can a president nominate such a candidate? And how can a party get behind such a candidate? That's what would be asked if somebody were foolish enough to nominate David Duke or pick somebody even less offensive."
    During his daily briefing, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called Limbaugh's comments "offensive."

    It's a sad day when Steele is being the reasonable one.

    And Rush needs to get hooked on Oxycotin again.

    I wonder how long Steele will go without caving in or apologizing to Boss Rush.

    And Rush needs to get hooked on Oxycotin again.
    Are you sure he isn't using?

    Steele may not have to bow to Rush this time since he didn't call him out by name.

    And if Rush were still hooked on Oxycotin I don't think he'd be going off the deep end so much.

    Can we just admit Boss Hog to the mental institution and just leave him there? And pound a bunch of sedatives in him, via IV drip?

    It's getting to be almost fun to anticipate and predict the blowback whenever Steele says something.

    Tho' I was wondering the other day whether there is a good cop-bad cop thing going on, with Steele playing (badly) good cop.

    Has it been kept real yet? Someone better keep it real soon, or it's going to go bad.

    What's the shelf life on keeping it real?

    Steele's just playing with himself, and doesn't know it.
