Rhyming With Cool: Tool and Fool

I am genuinely surprised that anyone even notices the moronic things Michele Bachman says, anymore:

From CNN, via TPMDC:

“As he concluded his remarks, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann — the event’s moderator — told Steele he was “da man.”

“Michael Steele! You be da man! You be da man,” she said.”

Ta-Nehisi has had enough:

This. Must. Stop.

I’m here to announce the formation of DOPE (Distinguished Officials for Proper Ebonics) whose sole mission will be to prevent such abominable phrases as “You be da man.” We have sat quietly by, during the era “Oh no she din’t” and “Women, be shopping.” We have endured the apostasy of Stuart Scott. (“Holla at a player if you see him in the streets!”). We can no longer be silent. The war is on.

Steve Benen has some constructive criticism:

Following up on Hilzoy’s item from earlier, I want to offer the Republican Party some simple and friendly advice: stop trying so hard to be cool. It’s backfiring.

The catalyst for all of this is Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) telling RNC Chairman Michael Steele last night, “Michael Steele! You be da man! You be da man.”

Of course, this followed Steele’s speech to the CPAC banquet, during which he told the far-right crowd:

“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 comes a day after Steele told ABC News that he sends “some slum love out to my buddy, Gov. Bobby Jindal.” Steele added that Jindal is “doing a friggin’ awesome job in his state.”

We’ve heard about “bling, bling.” We’ve been promised a Republican Party that’s “off the hook.” We’ve been told the GOP will mount a comeback “with the Twittering.” We’ve seen candidates for the RNC chairmanship argue over who has more Facebook friends. The Republican Party, rumor has it, is going to go “beyond cutting edge.”

Enough. This is embarrassing. These guys are making The Daily Show’s “Reagraham Lincool” skit look like it was sincere.
