In light of the racial indignities being foisted upon Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele, a black Republican who recently announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate, members of the black leadership group Project 21* call on all candidates and political parties to shun both the use of such tactics and individuals who employ them.
Steele most recently was portrayed as a white minstrel in blackface on a left-wing blog, but has suffered other racial indignities such as being pelted with Oreo cookies at the historically-black Morgan State University in Baltimore and being called “Uncle Tom,” among other epithets.
“Wha? Hey! This is truly infamous!
If you liberal-blog gutter-racists don’t stop
portraying me as… Ow! Yack! Who’s throwing
those Oreo cookies!? Yaah!”
You’re right, Mr. Steele. That was completely unfair, and we’ll stop right now.
“Oooh, mamma mia, whatta pizza! Me an’ Scalito a-gonna banna Abortion!
…Ack, wait, what have you done? This is an outrage!
Sigh. You just can’t please these wingnuts.

UPDATE – I stole the pic from TBogg, and I’m now told it’s not Steele. What’s the dice on this?
