So MC Black Steele kicked some knowledge at CPAC and his peeps gave him his props, yo:
[C]heck out this latest development in Steele’s campaignto create a hip-hop image for the GOP. Michele Bachmann praised Steele’s speech: “Michael Steele! You be da man! You be da man.”
You be da man? Cause dats how dem blacks be talkin to each other, and how white folks that is down can hang. It’s true. I axed somebody.
But just in case you were doubting just how off-da-chain Reagraham Lincool is, Mitch McConnel drops science faster than a creationist in a bio class:
…[W]ho wants to hang out with guys like Paul Krugman and Robert Reich when you can be with Rush Limbaugh?
I’ll say this, Rush definitely has the better drugs. So in a sense, yeah. But only in the sense that certain insufferable pricks become momentarily sufferable if they’ve got the good gear. I’ll do blow with Hitler if he’s got the uncut shit.
Meanwhile, one of the Neocon’s new Tween Idols, Hannah Continetta, is trolling for his own, non-drug addled (or black) heroes to save conservatism:
Where to begin? Start with some exemplars of decency, professionalism, and ability. US Airways pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III riveted the nation with his dramatic crash-landing into the Hudson River. -Sullenberger’s experience and stoicism meant that not a single life was lost during the dramatic and dangerous touch-down. It is no surprise that he has been lionized in the days since. When everything else seems to be crashing all around us, Sullenberger is a rock of common sense and soft-spoken modesty. Imagine–just imagine–if the men and women who represent us in Congress shared his character?
Um, well, let’s just say, conservative hero FAIL:
The air traffic controller who handled Flight 1549 thought ditching in the Hudson River amounted to a death sentence for all aboard. Now the veteran pilot who pulled off the ditching safely says harsh pay cuts are driving experienced pilots from the cockpit.
Sullenberger, a 58-year-old who joined a US Airways predecessor in 1980, told the House aviation subcommittee that his pay has been cut 40 percent in recent years and his pension has been terminated and replaced with a promise “worth pennies on the dollar” from the federally created Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. These cuts followed a wave of airline bankruptcies after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that were compounded by the current recession, he said.
“The bankruptcies were used by some as a fishing expedition to get what they could not get in normal times,” Sullenberger said of the airlines. He said the problems began with the deregulation of the industry in the 1970s. […]
Sullenberger’s copilot, Jeffrey B. Skiles, said that unless federal laws are revised to improve labor-management relations, “experienced crews in the cockpit will be a thing of the past.” And Sullenberger added that without experienced pilots “we will see negative consequences to the flying public.”
Oops, Sully’s pro-union and opposes Reagan’s glorious de-regulation. Which I believe, in the parlance of our times, makes him a Socialist Marxist Terror Hitler.
