Teabagger candidate cries ‘he’s copying me!’
The arrogance and ego of teabagger Republican Congressional candidate Rob Steel - who is trying to unseat the dean of the U.S. House, John Dingell - continues to amaze me.
After trying to provoke a confrontation with an opposing campaign volunteer, lying about it and then banning all dissent, Steele is making the ridiculous claim that Dingell is – get this - copying his web site. He claims Dingell’s, apparently, redesigned campaign web site looks like his, so he must have copied from Steele. Talk about juvenile. On his Facebook page, Steele made this ridiculous post.
“John Dingell is running out of new ideas, but he sure likes to copy mine: His new website has changed to Steele blue, his name is written in Steele gray, and he has copied the Steele coalitions.”
What an ego. He reminds me of another physician in the Legislature, State Sen. Roger Kahn, R-Saginaw. It remains to be seen if the two have the same kind of temper. We will find out in November when Steele joins a long, long line of candidates who failed to beat Congressman Dingell.
What the heck is “Steele blue?” Can anyone tell me? We even get this great quote from one of the sheeples on his page:
“I really think that Dingell feels the electorate is stupid enough to confuse the 2 campaign signs and hopes to capitalize on votes with name recognition and a bit of confusion.”
That has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Dingell’s yard signs are red, and they have been for many years. Steele’s yard signs, I believe, are white. I can guarantee you this, John Dingell has much more name recognition that Steele. Steele’s huge ego can only hope to have a fraction of that name recognition.
And if you want to talk about confusion and deception, you only have to look at Steele’s weak attempt to make people think he has the support of the United Steel Workers (USW) by referring to his campaign sheeple as steelworkers.
The fact is the two web sites are similar, but the fact is they look like many political web sites. In fact, Dingell and Steele’s web site looks similar to Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero’s web site.
Is Steele now going to claim that Bernero is copying him, too? I wouldn’t put it past him, and I can hear the refrain now, “he’s copying me!”
