Stewart Mocks Michael Steele’s ‘Street’ Cred (Video)

December 16, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—During Wednesday’s show, Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart skewered RNC Chairman Michael Steele’s ridiculous attempt at casting himself as a hip-hop “street” guy, to explain away his embarrassing verbal gaffes and buffoonish incompetence. Surprising just about everyone, but delighting Democrats,  the clownish Steele announced he was seeking reelection to another term as chairman. While referring to Steele’s gaffe-plagued term, as a “Reign of Error,” and the “Great Gaffesby,” Stewart brought on the Michael Steele “street” puppet, to explain his decision to run again.

Stewart played off the “street” remarks made by Steele on Fox News, when announcing his plans to try and stay on as RNC chair.

“My style is little bit different than most conventional Republican party chairman. My style is more grassroots oriented, I’m much more of a street guy,” Michael Steele told Fox News.

Stewart quipped, ‘What conventional observers might define as giant f*ck ups Chairman Steele sees as out of the box thinking.”

The Michael Steele puppet then launched into a hilarious mishmash of “street” talk.

“You ain’t street you sidewalk,” said the Steele puppet to Stewart.

“Street?!” Stewart said. “You live in an affluent suburb in Maryland. The only street you remind people of is Sesame Street.”
