The media created controversy surrounding a comedy CD distributed by Republican National Committee chair candidate Chip Saltsman has not torpedoed his bid and might have inadvertently helped it.
Four days after news broke that the former Tennessee GOP chairman had sent a CD that included a song titled Barack the Magic Negro to the RNC members he is courting, some of those officials are rallying around the embattled Saltsman, with a few questioning whether the national media and his opponents are piling on.
When I heard about the story I had to figure out what was going on for myself, said Mark Ellis, the chairman of the Maine Republican Party. When I found out what this was about I had to ask, boy, whats the big deal here? because there wasnt any.

I am so so so thankful it's backfiring.
The media's hypocrisy is on full display here, it just needs to be pointed out and articulated properly.
The LA Times and Ehrenstein are the only ones escaping these calls for racism despite being the original source of all of this. They are even in the song!
Let's show others what's missing from today's reporting. Once pointed out and properly articulated, it's not hard to see the hypocrisy. If the media really wants irrelevancy that bad, let's help them out.
Barack the Magic Negro / The song is funny thanks Rush

The greatest tools used against democracy by some croocks behind the stage!
They must be slamed and weakened at every opportunity...

The Trojan Horse is inside the Whit House on Jan. 20. This is just the start of the purge of the last vestiges of Anerican individual thinkers. From now on the collectivists are in the driver seat.
Al Sharpton with an electronic bullhorn.
Dave Chappelle played a magic negro on his show a few years back.
My opinion of him sure increased.
He’s now my 4th choice.
Blackwell or Dawson please.
HILDA SOLIS OBAMA SECRETARY OF LABOR STATED , "WE ARE ALL AMERICANS, WHETHER YOU ARE LEGALIZED OR NOT"! Major applause. Ev Miller has the audio tape (poor quality, but you can hear it). Her one and only goal has always been to protect illegal alien invaders. Now she will be OBAMA the messiah's Secretary of Labor. Good luck to all!
I’m glad Saltsman is standing up to the BS.
BUT, Saltsman is Huckabee’s stalking horse.
He won’t get my support.
Huck is a pro-life version of Rudy.
Lenin must have been on to something when he boasted that his soviets would sell the rope by which the American capitalists would hang thermselves. And the American people don’t understand much of anything. They are being patient waiting for their “free” health care. Sen. EMK is said to be putting the last words on the page for this popular innovation.
They buried us I guess. I knew it when the PC Bull started. That was the beginning of the end. Obama is the end.
The local news station had their 4th report on this nonsense last night. They have played the song for people on the streets to get their reaction (negative and racist of course) and are refusing to give the whole story.... that it is parody and based on a statement from a lib. They are really trying to make a mountain out of a molehill... if it is even as big as a molehill.
The lyrics were lifted from actual Al Sharpton soundbites.
