Awesome: Michael Steele wins freestyle rap debate with Colbert; Update: RNC outraises DNC

The challenge having been issued and accepted, sort of, the beats are hereby given and the rhymes duly dropped. I knew Steele’s luck had to turn around sometime. But I didn’t know it would turn around this dramatically.

Say what you will about the man, but he can spit it.

Update: Like I said, the turnaround has begun:

In its first full month under the chairmanship of Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, the Democratic National Committee only raised $3.26 million in February, according to figures released by the committee this afternoon.

The total lags behind the February fundraising total at the Republican National Committee, which raised $5.1 million during the month. RNC chairman Michael Steele, who faced a tumultuous first month as chairman, will get to claim an early fundraising victory over his Democratic counterpart.
