Michael Steele, Criminal, RNC chairman

Michael Steele was hand-picked as a poster boy for Republican diversity by Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Rather than admit what were his principles to voters, he lied to Maryland voters when he ran for Senate in 2006.
WaPo: "A fuller picture has emerged about how the plan to capture blacks' votes unfolded -- details that suggest the fliers, and the people paid to distribute them, were not part of a hurry-up effort but a calculated strategy."

Now Steele is head of the Republican National Committee. Is a liar and crook the best they could do?

When a party is a desperate and morally bankrupt as this one, any minority member who takes a pretty picture will do, no matter how incompetent. Sarah Palin, anyone? Clarence Thomas?

At the end of Sunday’s Face the Nation, host Bob Schieffer commented on former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele as chairman of the Republican National Committee: "So it was that the party of Lincoln, which had freed the slaves, but in the process had become the party of mainly white people, came full circle and turned to an African-American Moses to lead it out of the political wilderness."

Schieffer started his commentary by explaining how the Republican Party came to be the party of "mainly white people": "When Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, he told a fellow Democrat "we have lost the south for a generation," and he was right. Richard Nixon capitalized on southern anger brought on by that act, developed a southern strategy, which emphasized states" rights, won the presidency twice, and a region where there had been few Republicans since the Civil War became the base of the reborn Republican Party."
