It is easy to laugh at the whole Limbaugh-Steele drama and assume that it is a complete meltdown of the Republican party.

But I think it could instead be a devious choreographed play to mobilize racists for the Republican party.

Think about it. No big political plays happen unless they are crafted in advance by Karl Rove or some other political strategist.

Do you get it? Its an attempt to channel all of the anger of the racists into support for the GOP.

Does this sound too crazy and disgusting to be real? Maybe . . . but I've got 2 words for you: Karl Rove.

I don't know if this is what's going on. I'm simply putting out a hypothesis.
