Wingnut "How low can you go?" award 

(cross-referenced under "Inappropriate Reference to Hitler and/or Nazis, #14,988)

Conservatives looooove Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, 'cuz he's black and blindly supports W, like so many other neocons. They also like to tell the tale (which has since been shown to have been highly suspect, if not completely fabricated) of how a few crazies once threw oreos at Steele.

Well, now we're seeing that Mikey -- who's now running for the U.S. Senate -- has got a little crazy in him, too! And he likes to play the race/religion card! Shocking, eh?

This week Steele tried to play on the fears of a Jewish group by ridiculously comparing stem cell research to.... (wait for it!).... the Holocaust! Mikey said:
You of all folks know what happens when people decide they want to experiment on human beings, when they want to take your life and use it as a tool.
Yeah, that makes sense. Research on frickin' cells to save millions of lives, vs. killing millions of living human beings for sport.

If a couple people did throw oreos at Steele, because of how his politics relates to his race, that was just despicable. But throwing tomatoes, just on general principle, would clearly be warranted.
