Chip Saltsman wants to be the next Chairman of the Republican National Committee. His big plan to win over the hearts and minds of other Republicans: release a Christmas CD containing the racist song “Barack the Magic Negro.”

I suppose I should be angered by this action, but I’m actually pretty happy about it. I love to see Republican party nutjobs get national press for their extremist views. In only helps convince moderate voters that the GOP has become a party of radical social conservatives.

Speaking of radical social conservatives, Ohio’s own extremist Ken Blackwell actually defended Saltsman. Blackwell, who is running for the Chairman position himself and who also happens to be black, said “there is hypersensitivity in the press regarding matters of race” because of Obama’s election, and he concluded, “All of my competitors for this leadership post are fine people.”

You absolutely have to love the Republican party for self-destructive behavior like this… The black homophobe from Ohio defends the racist hick from Tennessee and both are candidates for the chairmanship of their party.

Man I hope one of them wins.

  • Dennis Prager’s recent article about marital relations (in the broad and narrow senses) is part of this as well. That article was written on litmus paper. This is also what is behind the Sarah Palin boom. What they are trying to do is lay down markers that any remaining moderates must either implicitly endorse or leave the Party.

    There is only one possible rationale. They must really think that there are a HUGE number of people — it would have to be 20 or 25 million nationwide to be worthwhile — who are rightwards of anywhere the Party has ever dared to go and who for that reason have never voted, or at least not since 1980 or 1964. I suspect they are right, but I think they will have trouble getting them to the polls, because these are what might be called undocumented citizens: paranoiacs who do not participate in the legal economy in any way. They do not buy anything that cannot be bought with cash; they do pay taxes; they do not have title to their cars or their land; they do not fill out census forms. The rural areas are full of people like this. The actual population of, for example, Knox County is probably three times what any government agency imagines that it is. There is neither the means nor the will to enforce any of the relevant laws. This is the Republican Party’s new base, but how can voter registration be redefined so as to accomodate their paranoia? Watch for third-world-style proposals tantamount to the “purple finger”.

  • my heart sings joy for the GOP.
    of the GOP, my soul rejoices.

  • Amen.
