Today on Tommy T’s Obsession With The Freeperati – gorge rising

Good Monday morning, all !
Tony Hendra famously wrote “A walk through the ocean of most souls would scarcely get your feet wet.”
Well here, a walk through what passes for souls on Free Republic will slime you in idiocy all the way up to your knees, so double-check those iso suit seals, and we’ll get started.

First up –“Barack The Magic Negro” – what’s the problem with that??

In spite of RNC Chairman Robert M. “Mike” Duncan’s sharply negative
reaction, former Tennessee GOP leader Chip Saltsman said thatparty leaders
should stand up to criticism over distributing a CD with the song. He
earlier defended the tune as one of several “lighthearted political
parodies” that have aired onRush Limbaugh‘s radio show.

“The 2008 election was a wake-up call for Republicans to reach out and
bring more people into our party,” Duncan said in a statement. “I am
shocked and appalled that anyone would think this is appropriate as it
clearly does not move us in the right direction.”

Freepers are shocked and appalled, too – that Michael Steele didn’t appear on the dais eating watermelon, fried chicken, and doing a buck-and-wing while grinning from ear to ear.

“and bring more people into our party”
From what I can tell from this last election, the only people they’re trying to bring into “our party” are liberals.
I wish the Republican party would grow a pair already.

Yep. More crazy and a blacklist (h/t Adam Serwer).
And a pair.
And, of course, more clever political satire like this. Because a white guy calling a black man a Negro in 2008 is even funnier than calling him a nigger or a jiggaboo.
Because when you’re a racist with a smile, it’s satire.
