"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Michael Steele's foot lodged deep in his thoat!

Michael Steele is a gift that keeps on giving (to the Democrats). In his now-infamous interview with GQ, he had the following surprising answers to very clear and direct questions.
Do you have a problem with gay priests who are celibate?
No, it’s your nature. It’s your nature. You can’t—I can’t deny you your nature.
Uhhhhh, HUH? It's your nature? What about the Evangelical Re-education camps? Isn't it funny (as in strange, not as in ha-ha) that Conservatives always fume about a fear that Obama will build some sort of scary Socialist re-education camps when it's really their own team who actually have built them! But that's an aside, it gets better...
Do you think homosexuality is a choice?
Oh, no. I don’t think I’ve ever really subscribed to that view, that you can turn it on and off like a water tap.
Nice! Well said, sir. But the real kicker comes a few minutes later. Check out this exchange.
Are you saying you think women have the right to choose abortion?
Yeah. I mean, again, I think that’s an individual choice.

You do?
Yeah. Absolutely.

Do pro-choicers have a place in the Republican Party?
Dude, you're smoking something, because your Party, the one you're supposed to be leading, explicitly forbids pro-choicer's from being a member by the very text of their Presidential platform!
Faithful to the first guarantee of the Declaration of Independence, we assert the inherent dignity and sanctity of all human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed.
If you're going to run a political party, perhaps you should know what it is they stand for before opening your big, fat mouth and shoving your foot down your throat.

Really. They're making this way too easy.
