“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”

What is it with Republicans? Rush Limbaugh can say the most fucked up shit about them and they still end up apologizing to him. From Politico:
I think I'm enjoying this as much as Rick Sanchez. These two are just going to go at each other until there's really nothing left of the Republican party. Keep it going boys.
Here's a good one from ThinkProgress:
Virginia state delegate Robert Marshall (R): "That is as much a chain of slavery around our children. … It is as much a chain as ankle bracelets were as to African-Americans in the 1860s in this state. It’s just invisible. But it is a chain of death that we’re not going to escape."
One highlight from Kanye's Storytellers. Instead of telling stories between songs, which is the usual format, Kanye chooses to ramble awkwardly about nothing over the music. Go to about the 4:50 mark to be enlightened. "That's a story for your ass." [Stereogum]
More comedy, but this time with an important message. The Ad Council has a new series of YouTube videos targeted at teenagers about the dangers of reckless driving. This one with Fred Willard is my favorite, and you can see the rest of them at Videogum. "Rad!"
The only one who may be able to challenge Rush as the leader of the GOP is Jonathan Krohn. "It's really not a question of if he gets his ass kicked at school, it's how badly he gets his ass kicked."
