What about Larry the Cable Guy? He's funny, no?

Re: "Barack the Magic Negro"

I would love to see Steele as head of the GOP. There are minorities out there who are Republicans and influential in the party. I hope to see more.

The GOP has lost its way its last few years, and has gotten away from its core values. While there were many things I did not like about W, I do think in 20 to 30 years he will be viewed as a decent president. That is if the media ever gives him a fair shake.

While I think what this guy did was totally unacceptable and he is first class dolt. I have wondered why was there never any outcry when liberals (and why weren't they condeming them?) were making remarks like "Palin should be aborted".

Michael Steele? I hope the people in the RNC don't suffer from white conservative guilt and vote for him to run the RNC.

No one but you know how these things go, they take a life of their own and stories get twisted and shit gets made up. The story originated from a liberal caller to a radio station and this story which were all the rage on drudge and wingnut blogs a while back. False outrage and false equivalence, the wingnut way.

i think its exactly the same, only difference is chris rock gets paid for it. the only reason people are upset is because it was a white guy who has a seat in the republican party. if it would have been a skit on SnL most people would find it funny.

I hadn't heard it either, but a quick search turned up this:
The Barack Obama Hate Machine | You Decide 2008

I have no idea if any of it is real, but, if it is, it's the fringe. Just like on the right, the fringe left is generally worthless.

Well that's the thing Wolf, people aren't in the mood for satire from politicians. Especially Republicans. This is even coming from their own party members. They want answers and leadership. But you're right, had this been SNL it wouldn't be a problem. I will say this about comparing Chip's actions to SNL - SNL is equal opportunity. They slam Republicans, Democrats, black, white, female, whatever. S

The thing is the country just finished with a bitterly faught election, from both sides, and most Americans want to move forward. It probably doesn't help that Barack's ratings are through the roof either.

Re: "Barack the Magic Negro"

I don't think they get it. Me calling Bush a dumb peckerwood is not the same as Howard Dean calling him a dumb peckerwood. This isn't about racism either, it's about judgment in light of the perception people have about your party, a party you're aspiring to lead. No one gives a shit about the song or its performer. What they care about is the endorsement of it by someone wanting to lead the RNC.

Because I love history all of this reminds me of Bess Truman poor judgment in light of D.A.R. refusal to allow Hazel Scott to perform at the Constitution Hall because she was black. After she got wind of the story Mrs. Truman issued a press release in the morning condemning D.A.R's refusal to allow Mrs. Scott to perform and in the afternoon attended a tea party held by D.A.R. in her honor.

Contrast Bess Truman's action with that of Eleanor Roosevelt who resigned her D.A.R. membership when Marian Anderson's request to perform at Constitutional Hall was denied. Mrs. Roosevelt later persuaded interior secretary Harold Ickes to arrange for an outdoor concert for Mrs. Anderson at the steps of Lincoln Memorial.

The moral of the story is that judgment and class knows no race, color or creed.

Re: "Barack the Magic Negro"

Some political analysts are speculating that the CD may actually help Saltsman become the next chairman of the RNC. Moreover, current Chairman Michael Duncan is actually catching flak for condemning Saltsman's promotion of the song. And the GOP wonders why it got its ass spanked in 2008?

Re: "Barack the Magic Negro"

First off this song came from a guy who wrote it for Rush. I listen to his show about 4 hours a year and happened to hear this part of his show back in 2007. This song was joking on the LA Times article (I think it was that paper) and directed at them and not Obama. If you notice CNN gave links to some things in this story but did not give a link to the article which would put this song in better context. Now, I do think it was dumb for this guy to even produce the CD because of how it would be perceived by the public. I don't know the guy so I'm not going to judge him by what might have been a bad humor.

Re: "Barack the Magic Negro"

Obama is going to be POTUS. He should not be disrespected in this way. It's time for everyone to join together as Americans and pull together.
