Excuse me????

I could not believe these words out of the mouth of Howard Dean:
Saying Maryland Democratic leaders must do more to encourage black candidates so "we do not have another Michael Steele problem," Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Thursday criticized the state party's lack of diversity on its recent winning tickets.

Remind me again what the "Michael Steele problem" is... oh yeah, the problem was that Michael Steele is black and is not a Democrat. So basically, Dean is saying that more black Democrats should run so that there will never be a black Republican.

Isn't this the same guy that criticized the Republican party for not having enough black people in it? Even assuming that was true (which it wasn't), where does he get off trying to drive black people out of the Republican party just because they're black?
