Being in Black Face VI

Michael Steele, the new colored GOP chairman, gave an interview to the Washington Times where he made these comments:

"We need messengers (This sounds holy.) to really capture that region - young, Hispanic, black, (designees of that "region") a cross section ... We want to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like (looks like?) the conservative party that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-suburban hip-hop settings. (How are you gonna do this?) We need to uptick (uptick?) our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets. (Yeah, this really outta do it. By the way, who are these?)"

Has this guy ever spoken in this way? Like I've written here, I didn't know Mr. Steele before he became the chairman of the GOP. If he wasn't out there before, he most certainly is now. What is he talking about? What about policy? Perhaps it was the image of looking like ones with principles as opposed to being those with such has been the problem with GOP leadership.
