Michael Steele as Political Tiger Woods
(Politico) — The novelty of [Michael Steele’s] tokenism is, for the most part, played out. The shine of that moment has worn off, much like the droopy poll numbers of President Obama. He’s like Tiger Woods: his usefulness is over. Even though the GOP witnessed major gains in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts under Steele while milking his rather odd Black celebrity status (for lack of a better description), they’ve got the Tea Party faithful and a bad economy to keep them in play through November.
