Oh, no he didn't! Michael "there's a logic to it" Steele has come out with fists flying.

This time, the brutha with the mad flava is flossin' with a remixed Daisy ad. Holy shizz! 

That's right, an ad LBJ and the Democrats pulled four decades ago because it was too incendiary is making a remixed comeback.

What's next? A remake of the Willie Horton ad?

My response (please visually substitute "RNC" for "Agnew"):
