Michael Steele Hits Rush Limbaugh, Rand Paul and GOP

(By Robert "Bob" Redding Jr., Reddingnewsreview.com) - Former RNC Chair Michael Steele today called a recent Ebonics laced skit done by a Rush Limbaugh show staffer "inappropriate" and "unnecessary".

Steele said that the satirical skit does not help to move race relations forward.

"I thought it was highly inappropriate," Steele said. "It is stupid. It's not something that furthers the conversation."

Steele's comments came during a wide-ranging exclusive interview on this reporter's "Redding News Review" radio show.

The Limbaugh staffer, James Golden, who performed the skit, is black.
