Michael Steele Vomits In Terror At Prospect Of Facing Black Journalists
The National Association of Black Journalists was having a party in San Diego last week, and they invited noted black person Michael Steele to join them! Because they're journalists in addition to being black, these guys would probably ask Steele about recent important black people political news, like the smearing of nice black lady Shirley Sherrod. But Steele is a smooth operator! He would deftly explain what needed explaining, apologize when necessary, and agree to disagree where there's no common ground, right? Oh, or he mightcancel at the last minute, sending word through a spokesperson that he was back at his hotel puking his guts out.
Here is the official word from the RNC:
While traveling out West the Chairman came down with a bad case of food poisoning. He is disappointed to miss the opportunity to take part in this valuable dialogue and looks forward to engaging with NABJ in the very near future.
If you think that this is related to potentially awkward questions about why conservative activists are determined to destroy the NAACP, and why one of those activists is doing a joint fundraising appearance with Michael Steele, you are a mean person. Michael Steele has an extremely delicate constitution, and, airline food, amiright, people? Airline food! What's the deal with the food on airplanes? [The Root]
