“In 2006, [Michael] Steele was a mere lieutenant governor of Maryland running for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat. One of the most prominent African-American Republicans in the country, he anticipated that he’d take a heaping of vitriol from his opponents. And so, in a preemptive strike, he decided to produce what can be remembered as one of the great campaign ads of all time: the Puppy ad.”

And guess who the puppy was?
