That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

The Bachelor Finale, Limbaugh, and Steele

with 9 comments

Wow! It was hard to believe that after he made his choice he came crawling back and begged for another chance, but that’s just what Michael Steele did.   Last week, Steele appeared on D.L. Hughley’s show on CNN and disputed Hughley’s statement that Rush Limbaugh “is the de facto leader of the Republican Party.” “I’m the de facto leader of the Republican Party!” Steele insisted. Steele called Limbaugh’s shtick is “incendiary” and “ugly.”

Well just yesterday Steele backed down.  “There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership,” Steele said. He added, “There are those out there who want to look at what he’s saying as incendiary and divisive and ugly. That’s what I was trying to say. It didn’t come out that way.”   Did Michael Steele mistakenly forget how much power Limbaugh has over us?  Perhaps, but then again there may be a less calculating reason.

It seems that second chances were in the air yesterday.  On ABC’s The Bachelor I heard something about the winner breaking up with the woman he picked and then asking a girl he dumped to go out with him or something like that.  I guess what happenned (I hear) is that Jason picked Melissa because he was like Molly makes me think of fun and excitement, but when I think of Melissa its like I think of love and then he sent Molly home and she was like all “I don’t understand” and “you’re going to get hurt again”.   But you know, in the back of his mind Jason couldn’t stop think of Molly and he broke up with Melissa and then Molly comes out and she’s like all “I really did fall for Jason” and he’s like “I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last several days and I think everything I’ve been looking for and which I thought I found at one point was wrong and so much of what I was looking for and I didn’t even know it was right in front of my face and I think the most insincere thing I could do is jump real fast from one thing to another, but what I was hoping was that we could have a shot if we could go out for coffee or a drink and see where things…”  and she’s like “Well yeah.”

I’m pretty sure that something very similar happenned to Michael Steele.  He probably thought about Rush and he was like, “You complete me.”  I’m hoping that the day of second chances will be the beginning of something big.  Jason asked Molly to take it slow and get away from the cameras and go out for a drink or a cup of coffee.  I think that would be a very good idea for Rush and Michael as well.

  1. Thanks for the synopsis. I got what was happening with Steele. That’s getting really funny but if one more Republican apologizes to Rush it’s going to get into the overkill area. I was totally at sea over The Bachelor, though. They were talking about it on the TV and I’ve never seen it…or maybe heard of it. Don’t you think there are too many different shows on these days? Anyway, I think I get it now. Kind of.

  3. He hasn’t seen it, but that doesn’t mean Nate hasn’t sent over 100 registered letters to ABC asking to be the next Bachelor in a house full of young, beautiful, rich, conservative women.

  4. Nate, you’d be a great bachelor for that program. I hope they’ll call you soon.

  5. Why does Lola get a new icon and I still have the one that looks like toenail fungus from the Lamisil commerical???? I’m family.

  6. I don’t want a new icon! I liked my pink one. I think it’s just because yesterday I used my husband’s computer before I went to sleep.
    But Steve, I live your icon. It fits you. It’s very manly.
    You know, I was thinking, and I reached the conclusion that Gisele is doing quite well. Of course that, for American standards, she’d only be middle class, but for Brazilian standards, I’d say she’s rich. Even before marrying the American football player!

  7. That’s before the Obama tax increase kicks in on people making over $250,000. They’re going to be hurting.

  8. altho i didn’t see the bachelor show either, it actually sounds like maybe he was angling for a threesome-type deal and when the first gal didn’t go for it, he had to do some fast talking. (i think when the second gal hears about it, she’s going to be throwing that cup of coffee in his face!)

    as for steele, i hope he at least sent rush a nice big bouquet of roses.

  9. Wow Gina! I hadn’t thought of that. Good to see you posting here again. I don’t know what he got, but I guarantee it was nice. You don’t just buy a rose from some guy on the street corner to make up for tiff like that.
