RNC candidate Chip Saltsman’s Christmas greeting to committee members includes a music CD with lyrics from a song called "Barack the Magic Negro," first played on Rush Limbaugh’s popular radio show.Meanwhile, GOP house negro Ken Blackwell says that "the media is too sensitive":
"Unfortunately, there is hypersensitivity in the press regarding matters of race. This is in large measure due to President-Elect Obama being the first African-American elected president," said Blackwell, who would be the first black RNC chairman, in a statement forwarded to Politico by an aide. "I don't think any of the concerns that have been expressed in the media about any of the other candidates for RNC chairman should disqualify them. When looked at in the proper context, these concerns are minimal. All of my competitors for this leadership post are fine people.""Fine people"?? Coming from the guy who stole Ohio for Bush in 2004, that's something that I'll take with a BIG grain of salt....say, about the size of Utah. Who says the GOP isn't full of racist old white men?
