(CNN) — A candidate for the Republican National Committee chairmanship said Friday the CD he sent committee members for Christmas — which included a song titled “Barack the Magic Negro” — was clearly intended as a joke.
“I think most people recognize political satire when they see it,” Tennessee Republican Chip Saltsman told CNN. “I think RNC members understand that.”
Damn dude, “Negro”? It makes it tough to rock effective, current satire when you’re communicating to a 19th-century audience. I heard the next big RNC hits take down the Mussulmen, Orientals and Papists. Mocking the Papists? I can’t believe they went there!
