Huckabee Republicans

Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan issued a statement Saturday distancing the party’s leadership from one of the GOP’s best-known operatives, Chip Saltsman, who distributed a CD containing “Barack the Magic Negro” as part of his campaign to be elected chairman of the Republican National Committee next month.

Saltsman, 40, was former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s campaign manager during the Republican presidential primaries.

  • Are you attributing that song to Huckabee, or Huckabee Republicans?  I see that Rush played it first, it seems more like a Rush thing than a Huckabee thing.  By attributing it to Huckabee Republicans, you change the context of the parody and smear social conservatives.  It was a stupid unnecessary thing to do, that’s for sure, and comes across offensively, no doubt about it.

    I would love to see the Huckabee Republicans (a.k.a. conservative Christians) take over the party, but I can understand why others may not.  But, to suggest that he is somehow guilty by association because his former campaign manager sent out a CD with a satire song written by someone else entirely is ludicrous.

    Trust me on this RepublicanVoices – Huckabee is going to be a very strong contender in 2012.

    It is an idiotic, no-talent parody of an awful, long forgotten song.

    It did make me cringe when I first heard it. Partly because it is so terribly lame, but mostly because I knew the kiddies would be unlikely to educate themselves as to its provenance, and would seize upon it as an opportunity to once again wave the bloody shirt.

    I must say, I wasn’t expecting a Republican to use it to smear an entire wing of the conservative movement.
