RNC Chair Michael Steele is “off the hook!”

So the Republicans heeded our call to revamp their image. We really didn’t mean for them to go where they have gone. First, they try Sarah Palin – the young, hot, powerful woman. That was a flop. Then after that disaster and their November pounding, they decided to fire the whole lot of ‘em and hire….a black dude. How friggin’ token is that?! I mean, honestly, I hope Michael Steele enjoys every penny he’s making because what he’s really making is a big, huge fool of himself.

His latest idiocy came when he spoke to the Washington Post. So he’s goin’ on and on about how his party is going to launch an “off the hook” public relations campaign that will update the GOP’s image by translating it to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”

Off the hook? Ok seriously, if I was conducting that interview, I would have laughed in his face. Buddy, you’re not 50 Cent. You’re not even Barack Obama. Didn’t Mitt Romney say some “who let the dogs out?” crap during his campaign?! This always backfires for the Republicans. They are always trying to play catch-up with the Progressives, but they end up just putting their foot in their mouth. It’s not annoying anymore, now it’s just pathetic.

And to top it all off, Steele went on to say that the Republican party wants to appeal to everyone, even “one-armed midgets.” Michael Steele, resign. You are worthless to your party. You are pathetic as a human being, and you have no CLUE how to run an effective PR campaign.

The people listen to The Block!!!!!

After much clamoring by energy hawks, who knows what it was that finally brought high-speed rail to the stimulus — perhaps a little nudge from ol’ Amtrak Joe? — but it got in, to the tune of $8 billion.

And now the question is, where will the expansion be? Matthew Yglesias reports on possible new high speed rail expansion:

In a last-minute change, the total quantity of funds available was increased. But there’s no special plan for Las Vegas. The money will be spread all across the country. As it happens, I think an LA-Vegas HSR line is a perfectly reasonable project. But in practice the areas that will get a leg up should be the Federal Railroad Administration’s officially designated high-speed rail corridors. As it happens, LA-Vegas doesn’t make the cut. But guess who does have such a corridor? Ohio!
