GOP [Not] Mum On ‘Magic Negro’ Parody

From the humor-impaired tone-deaf race-baiting unbiased Solons at Politico:

GOP mum on ‘Magic Negro’ parody


A candidate for the Republican National Committee chair sent out a holiday CD to committee members that includes the song "Barack the Magic Negro," a parody first aired on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show.

Chip Saltsman, the former campaign manager for Mike Huckabee who’s considered a long shot in the crowded field for RNC chair, is a friend of the song’s writer, Paul Shanklin, a comedian and frequent Limbaugh guest [sic]. The CD, called "We Hate the USA," pokes fun at liberals, their causes, and their slip-ups with titles like "The Star Spanglish Banner," "Love Client #9" and "Wright Place, Wrong Time."

In a voice meant to recall Al Sharpton, Shanklin sings on the "Barack the Magic Negro": "They’ll vote for him and not for me, cause he’s not from da hood. See, real black men like Snoop Dogg or me or Farrakhan have talked the talk and walked the walk, not come in late and won."

Limbaugh first aired the song, which draws on a column from the Los Angeles Times, on his show in 2007.

Calls and e-mails to Saltsman, a former advisor to Bill Frist, were not returned. In an interview with The Hill,  he said the songs, among them "John Edwards, Poverty Tour," "Your Momma’s So Fat" and "Duke Lacrosse," were meant simply as satires.

"Paul Shanklin is a longtime friend," Saltman told The Hill, "and I think that RNC members have the good humor and good sense to recognize that his songs for the Rush Limbaugh show are light-hearted political parodies."

To date, no Republican officials have condemned the CD.

Gosh, no Republicans have come forward to publically condemn someone for sending around a parody CD made by his friend.

A parody which employs an expression coined (or at least promulgated) by the LA Times columnist, David Ehrenstein (below left):


What a shock for Ms. Nia-Malika Henderson’s (above right) delicate sensibilities.

And never mind that minutes later the Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan did issue a statement (wrongfully) condemning this innocent merriment.

By the way, lest anyone ever forget how far left The Politico leans, they should check out their Top Ten Political Scoops Of 2008.

Hint: half of these scoops involve reportage of the villainies of Sarah Palin or John McCain. (E.g., Palin not knowing the Bush doctrine, McCain and his houses.)

They only negative “scoop” listed by the Politico about Obama, his “bitter clingers” remark, was not even uncovered by a “journalist.” (Nor would it have ever been.)

And the number 10 most important scoop of 2008 turns out to have been Colin Powell’s endorsement of Mr. Obama. (What a scoop!)

Meanwhile, the true nature of Mr. Obama’s spiritual mentor, the Reverend Doctor Wright – which was really our scoop — didn’t even make the top five.

Needless to say, none of Joe Biden’s gaffes, the illegal investigation of Joe The Plumber, or the amazing corruption of Mr. Blagojevich made the cut.

    What part of “only liberals have a sense of humor” don’t you understand? And don’t you know it’s NOT funny when you make jokes about liberals it’s only funny when you make jokes about conservatives. There may be a point there though because there is NOTHING funny about liberalism.

    I think the song stands on its’ own merit – the sumbitch is magic! Took down the Clinton machine, stopped taking questions from reporters, threw people off his campaign plane, avoided the Rev. Wright issue, his mother died (conveniently), etc. I mean, bravo! Talk about Teflon! That’s some magic, indeed.

    Now, perhaps, if they called it ‘Black Magic’, then we’d have a problem! Or maybe he should just blame it on Michelle and have Carlos Santana sing it: ‘Got a black magic woman…’

    Baracks’ a (whispering) N-E-G-R-O?

    Obama’s more of a Negrito if you ask me. I think this is ripe for South Park.

    *Sniff* *Sniff*
    The thin skinned bigots are crying again.

    The Stupid Party”s stupid leadership continues to NOT GET IT. This issue was put to rest earlier this year, but the ever weak, mindless goofs at the RNC insist on beating themselves up before the Democrats have a go at it. Their cowardice is disgusting! Care to take on the Islamic Jihad with these losers? Does anyone think for a moment that we can preserve this nation with these wimps? They would make terrific dhimmis if the time comes. We must see to it that the time doesn’t ever come with any of them in positions of leadership. I for one don’t plan on drowning with them. We can do a lot better, and we must.
