“Barack The Magic Negro”

December 27, 2008

Sorry, folks for the long break from posting while we were enjoying (more like enduring) the Christmas festivities. I was pleased to see, however, that the Republicans did not forget about us a gave us a beautiful Xmas gift. Via Steve Benen:

“[GOP operative] Chip Saltsman distributed a CD containing “Barack the Magic Negro” as a Christmas greeting to members of the Republican National Committee. Saltsman, Mike Huckabee’s former campaign manager and former chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party, used the music as part of his campaign to lead the RNC.

Despite the controversy that ensued in response to Saltsman’s offensive choice in music, Republican officials were noticeably silent about the issue.”

So what’s this CD all about? Take a gander:

“The CD, called ‘We Hate the USA,’ lampoons liberals with such songs as ‘John Edwards’ Poverty Tour,’ ‘Wright place, wrong pastor,’ ‘Love Client #9,’ ‘Ivory and Ebony’ and ‘The Star Spanglish banner.’

Several of the track titles, including ‘Barack the Magic Negro,’ are written in bold font.

The song…debuted on Limbaugh’s show in late March 2007”

That’s right, Limbaugh’s been pushing this song for almost a year now, and Republicans have had no qualms about appearing on his show over and over again.

Republicans. Like school in the summertime…no class.
