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.
