Michael Steele, Da Man
Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) embarrassing praise for Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele at last night’s CPAC banquet is getting derided around the web. After Steele’s speech, Bachmann — the banquet’s emcee —took the mic and said, “Michael Steele, you be da man! You be da man!”
It was sort of strange, but Bachmann was getting into the flow of Steele’s speech. Some excerpts:
“What a house tonight. Are there any conservatives in the house tonight?”
“Tonight we tell the American people: We know, in the past, that we did wrong. My bad.”
“Young people in the house stand up! Young people in the house stand up!”
This just sounds more natural coming from Prince George’s County, Md.-born Steele than the Waterloo, Iowa-born Bachmann.
