The only people who've used the term "bling-bling"—or even simply "bling"—in the last five years are old white people. And now the head of the RNC, Michael Steele, who, like Barack Obama, is black! And, unlike Barack Obama, he's old and uncool.
The Obama-backed stimulus, he said, "is just a wish list from a lot of people who have been on the sidelines for years.. to get a little bling, bling."

Steele went on to do a hilarious comedy "rap" involving the phrase "and I'm here to say," and then he fell in a swimming pool. At press time Queen Latifah was throwing a raging party at the RNC headquarters that was really getting out of hand.
