We imagine running the GOP looks exactly like this anyway: wearing a wizard's hat while leading a bunch of racially insensitive white people with children's brains.
The Republican Party has become more or less a parody of itself. Chip Saltsman is running to chair that sinking ship, and as part of his campaign sent out a CD with a song on it called "Barack the Magic Negro"
by some sub-Weird Al satirical songster who's featured on the Rush Limbaugh show. Politics is supposed to be serious business, but what does it say about the state of things in this sad ol' party that a big shot hopeful thinks it's not only acceptable, but indeed will help his chances at landing the gig, to send out this kind of insensitive trash. I mean even if it wasn't totally, blatantly, painfully racist the idea that partisan parody songs should play any part in politics at this level is just insane.
