Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steele to bring "the hood" to Delaware

Maryland Lt. Governor and U.S. Senate candidate Michael Steele will visit the First State on Thursday, July 27th. The event is being held at the Wilmington Drama League at 6:00 PM, and is hosted by TURN, The Underground Republican Network. Call the Delaware GOP for more.reports Dave at FSP

Here is the real skinny on this GOP moron. Steele (a black guy) is one who is the one whose spokesman claimed that "oreos were thick in the air" at a debate at Morgan State. As it turns out, they were imaginary oreos.

More recently, Steele said his U.S. Senate campaign aims to bring "the 'hood" with him to Capitol Hill.

"The 'hood is going to show up on the Hill," said Mr. Steele, a black Republican. "That is what this campaign is all about, and that scares some people when I say stuff like that -- on both sides of the aisle, God bless them."

In reality, he only represents the "hood" when saying, "Get your IPod off the HOOD of my Volvo."

And then he follows it up with THIS gem:

After the speech, Mr. Steele told The Washington Times that his comments were not intended to single out black voters.
"Last time I checked, white people lived in 'hoods, too," he said. "It is the same message for everyone. If you want to start a business, that's not a black thing or a white thing. That's green, baby. That's what that's about." - Via Lunkhead's Diary at Kos

Heck. Maybe I'll go to this train wreck and cover it. I can't wait to see what Mike Castle's face when Steele, once again, compares stem cell research to the Holocaust. It could be fun.

The Oreos were real, and while there has been dispute over whether the Oreos were thrown, hurled, pelted or otherwise bombarded, there is little dispute that Oreos were passed out to Townsend supporters at that event.

That picture is not Michael Steele, I don't think.
Bring a bottle of cold milk.
The Washington Times? That link does not even mention the alleged oreo pellting

Paul Schurick, who is quoted in the story as saying, “It was raining Oreos. They were thick in the air like locusts. I was there.”

“That’s insane,” says former Sun reporter Sarah Koenig, who covered Ehrlich in the 2002 campaign, and who says she didn’t see any Oreos that night. “The air was not thick with anything except political bullshit.”

..."It didn't happen here," said Vander Harris, operations manager of the Murphy Fine Arts Building at Morgan State. "I was in on the cleanup, and we found no cookies or anything else abnormal. There were no Oreo cookies thrown."

Steele later said that he saw an oreo on the floor.

As for the picture I googled "Michael Steele and George Bush" on an image search and found it at

Are you saying the White House is lying?
I meant to say that the link does not mention the "source" the alleged pelting. They just passed along a bunch of BS.

"During the 2002 campaign, Democratic supporters pelted Mr. Steele with Oreo cookies during a gubernatorial debate at Morgan State University in Baltimore. "

Don't go all Dana on me and call me a liar.
The question is whether people threw the oreos at Steele, not whether people were passing them out. So, at the very least, Democratic supporters were passing out Oreos.

Being misinformed is not lying.
The only report I read about the "passing out" of oreos was from George Will - and I doubt he was at the event.
I'm impressed with your site, very nice graphics!
I say briefly: Best! Useful information. Good job guys.
