Mike Huckabee’s former presidential campaign manager is turning to his party’s reliable strategy, race-baiting, to win his bid to become the next Republican National Committee leader. The Hill reports:
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.
Saltsman, a personal friend of conservative satirist Paul Shanklin [Shanklin penned the words to fit the tune “Puff the Magic Dragon], sent a 41-track CD along with a note to national committee members.
Side note: Saltsman is the former head of the Tennessee Republican Party, which famously published a photo of Obama wearing Somali garb (incorrectly dubbing it “Muslim” attire). That photo appeared on a flyer that accused “Barack Hussein Obama” of being an anti-Semite. So this sort of behavior apparently is the norm among his pals.
