RNC Chairman Michael Steele, guest-hosting for radio talk show host Bill Bennett, got all gangsta and up in the grill of them libruls for actually wanting a Supreme Court Justice to be "empathetic" and what not:

STEELE: Good morning y’all, we’re back in the house. We’re talking a little bit of Constitution and a little bit Supreme Court. And a whole lot of saving America’s judicial system and saving our rights as citizens and not having empathetic judges decide cases, but rather judges who are actually understanding the rule of law and what the Constitution and those laws are all about. And how to apply the facts to the law and the law to the facts. And adjudicate my case. I don’t need some judge sitting up there feeling bad for my opponent because of their life circumstances or their condition. And short changing me and my opportunity to get fair treatment under the law. Crazy nonsense empathetic. I’ll give you empathy. Empathize right on your behind. Craziness.

Oh my. How far the Party of Lincoln has fallen. Hard to imagine this on Bill "If you aborted every black baby, we'd have a lower crime rate" Bennett's show, isn't it?

Steele is celebrating his 100th day in office. Those nice folks at ThinkProgress have put together a kind of celebratory video of the greatest hits of his first 100 days.
