One Economic Bright Spot: The Never Trump Lifeboat Industry is Booming

You may remember Michael Steele as the decorative ornament who was hired to front for the Party of Bigots and Imbeciles during the Age of Obama to prove they weren't, y'know, a party of bigots and imbeciles.

Or you may remember Michael Steele as the Limbaugh Groveler.

Steele to Rush: I'm sorry

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says he has reached out to Rush Limbaugh to tell him he meant no offense when he referred to the popular conservative radio host as an “entertainer” whose show can be “incendiary.”

“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”...

Or you remember Michael Steele as the guy who told so many humiliatingly stupid lies on behalf of the Republican Party that he stopped going on The Daily Show for fear of the merciless mocking that  awaited him there.  TDS eventually just replaced him with a puppet, which was so appropriate on so many levels.

So where does a Republican like Michael Steele -- who trashed any shred of credibility he might have once had by publicly humiliated himself over and over again in defense of a party which A) loathed him and, B) turned out to be exactly as horrendous as the Left said it was all along -- go to hustle a buck these days?

MSNBC, of course, where all employees are warned to oblige the network's burgeoning stable of Republican Never Trumpers by never, ever mentioning their hand in creating the Republican monster machine which spawned Donald Trump and his army of congressional killbots.   

And thus freed of his despicable past courtesy of the Bottomless Beltway Media Memory Hole,  MSNBC contributor Michael Steele has now turned his mighty analytical powers to warning that those scurrilous Republicans will try to escape accountability for their depravity via the magic of...

... revisionist history.

This is reason #27 why they don't put me on panels with Michael Steele :-)

Behold, a Tip Jar!

Steele has adorned his darling MSNBC Baby Bib and ain't he so cute?

While they continue to obey the Tone Police. Trump is Colon Deep in ridiculing others.

Where is the Truth seeking Mike Malloy Tone on the TV? I consider it the fighting fire with fire Tone.

Olberman's "worst person in the world" was the last time MSNBC ( or any other network) televised serious gas bag hole poking at the unbridled irrational truth bankrupt right wing voices.
Let the comedians do it?
It is a subtraction to his readers for NYT's economic columnist, Paul Krugman, taking moments of his coluumn to address his "NYT colleague David Brooks who writes personal tear shedding for his imaginary average dude-cab driver who tells him things that miraculously coincide with what he write in his column that is supposed to guarantee David Brooks words may not be facts but you need to believe it anyways because like Trump says, (many people told him"). We never get to know who they are and how they got his ear and what they bring to the table, these figments of verbal imagination.
That Krugman must note that Brooks is experiencing a life long mental illness of amassing words that mean nothing. And, getting paid for it no matter how it embarrasses the paper that calls itself the Paper of record for America.

The "Tea Party", The GW Bush and "in the shadows" Cheney exposing undercover CIA agents for revenge for truth. Preemption of war because "My Daddy". Trump watched GW ignore the alarms and sirens of eminent attack by Osama Bin Laden leading up to the 9/11 attack. "NO ONE WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT WOULD HAPPEN".
Here we are with the GOP past haunting our present and dimming our future.

The differences between the GW GOP era and the now TRump GOP era is the same but with more vinegar and salt in the wounds they open.

STeele, Sykes, Dowd, Frum bring NOTHING to alter their nurturing of their part's harmful insanity.
The right cannot accept the very first words of the Preamble of the constitution, "We the People".
They never have and never will.

EVry republican (except the Romney) told America Trump is their guy and even as he breaks the law, he can because he is republican and were the same.
They are not building Life rafts. They are being paid well enough to pay to have their Life-Yachts built.

Coming Soon To Fox
