Defending the Indefensible

CNN reports that “Republican Party reaction is divided over the decision of a candidate for party chairman to distribute a CD that features the parody tune “Barack the Magic Negro,” with the majority of Chip Saltsman’s political rivals criticizing the move.”

Divided? I can understand that idiot Rush Limbaugh thinking this was a good idea. But honestly, there are others? Browsing around the blogs, I’ve found a lot of defense for Saltsman in the guise that Democrats want everything to be racist. Those poor Republicans feel like they just can’t win because the ‘libruls’ always play the race card and the media lets them win when they do.

Here’s a news flash for the Repugs who think this: You are racist. You apparently have no ability to discern what is humor or parody from what is worthy of a KKK barbecue.

My African-American friend emailed this little joke to me.

A stranger was seated next to a little black girl on the airplane when The stranger turned to her and said, “Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just opened her coloring book, closed it slowly And said to the stranger, “What would you like to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said the stranger. “Since you are a Negro, do you think that so-called President Elect Barack Obama is qualified for the job?” And he smiles.

“OK”, she said. ‘That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you A question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass -. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, And a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?”

The stranger, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, Thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”

To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss President Barack Obama… when you don’t know sh*t?”
