Video: Michael Steele on Bill Maher

In this exchange between former RNC Chairman Michael Steele and Bill Maher, Steele reminds me of the guy who is passed up for a promotion, becomes bitter, and then proceeds to act immaturely, thereby validating the original decision. The implication here is that Steele thinks the Republican Party is too rigid and unwilling to reach out to minority voters. He also scornfully refers to 'Republican justice' for why he was ousted despite all of the gains the party made in November.

Lost on Steele is that responsibility for the landslide elections was the result of two things - the Obama Administration and the Tea Party, which he did not do enough to support. Instead of humbly accepting that reality, he seems bitter and could go down a path similar to Al Gore after 2000, though certainly not to that extent.

The race that best exemplified where Steele went wrong was the special election in NY 23 in 2009 in which he backed far left liberal RINO Dede Scozzafava over Tea Party conservative Doug Hoffman. The end result was that Scozzafava dropped out and endorsed the Democrat. Hoffman lost a close race he most certainly would have won had the Republican party supported him.

Steele has essentially two choices at this point. He can either become bitter and trash the Republicans or he can get on board and show a little maturity. If this clip with Maher is any indication of coming attractions, he may choose the former which again, would validate his being voted out as RNC chairman.

Also, take note of Bill Maher's comment that there is a lot of 'Chicken' in Harlem.

Here is Steele standing by Scozzafava in 2009. It's at the very end of this clip; listen to Mika's comment after Chuck Todd gets Steele to publicly endorse Scozzafava.

Videos: Did CNN Sabotage Michele Bachmann's SOTU Response?

If you watched Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) give her Tea Party rebuttal to Obama's State of the Union speech, you likely found yourself wondering why she was looking away from the camera. Actually, she was looking directly into another camera, set up by the Tea Party Express. The camera that provided the feed which showed Bachmann looking away was from CNN and if the claim over at Breitbart is correct, it just shows - again - that the left in general and the liberal media in particular, have absolutely no shame.

According to Breitbart, CNN originally agreed to use the Tea Party video feed to carry Bachmann's response but set up another camera during the actual State of the Union speech, which Bachmann was attending. Any inclination one may feel to give CNN the benefit of the doubt should be snuffed out by an extremely pathetic track record.

Here is the Tea Party Express feed:

And of course, Saturday Night Live found the incident worthy of a skit. It'd be funny if you accept the false premise.
