Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Michael Steele

The Bryan Fischer award is given to those who engage in weapons-grade projection and accuse others of their own worst traits. Former RNC chairman Michael Steele is now criticizing current RNC chairman Rance Priebus for comparing Obama to the Italian ship captain who abandoned ship:

Wow. When Michael Steele is accusing other people of saying stupid things, you know you’re on Planet Wingnuttia. His entire reign as chairman of the party was one big apology for the last dumb thing he said.

    His entire reign as chairman of the party was one big apology for the last dumb thing he said.

    And that’s why he tries to send his successor’s reign down the same road – misery loves company.

    He’s a big part of the reason that the Republican party is in the condition it is in. So, thank you, Michael Steele.

    Hmmm. I think it can make perfect sense to accuse others of one’s own worst traits. After all, other people are indeed guilty of my own worst traits, and that remains true of them even if I’m the one to say it. Hell, I might even recognize the signs better than most people. The problem comes in when I accuse others of something while implying that I myself am not like that at all.

    So some of these nominees are better than others. In particular I don’t think stupidity works too well as the trait in question. But that’s kind of an aesthetic gripe rather than a substantive one. Carry on.

    Just for the record, the oddly-named GOP chairman is named Reince Priebus.

    Every time I see him, I can’t help but think of a blue muppet with Wyatt Cenac’s voice.

    His entire reign as chairman of the party was one big apology for the last dumb thing he said a never-ending running gag for Wonkette.

    FIFY

    Seriously, though, I suspect that may have been staged, since they managed to get in – and repeat – all the accusations about Obama while still “policing their own.”
