Oh Racism…

March 1, 2009

Ben Smith writes about a radio interview with RNC Chair Michael Steele in which he laughs along with some really low brow/borderline racist humor about Gov. Jindal.  Considering he’s the first African American RNC chair, you’d think he’d resist encouraging this kind of crap–especially given it’s a REPUBLICAN governor.

And oh yeah, “friggin'” is real classy.  Nice.

SLIWA: Because he is — when guys look at him and young women look at him — they say oh, that’s the slumdog millionaire, governor. So, give me some slum love.

STEELE: I love it. (inaudible) … some slum love out to my buddy. Gov. Bobby Jindal is doing a friggin’ awesome job in his state. He’s really turned around on some core principles — like hey, government ought not be corrupt. The good stuff … the easy stuff.

Ben Smith has the rest of the interview and audio.
