Racial Sensitivity Watch: GOP Edition

You may remember Chip Saltsman, the candidate for Chairman of the Republican National Committee who's positioned himself as the "Weird Al" Yankovic of eugenics by distributing a CD of racist parodies including the infamous "Barack the Magic Negro." Since we don't listen to much hip-hop down here, we somehow missed this other track on the CD, "The Star Spanglish Banner." A lot of Mexican officials are worried (rightly so, in our opinion) that Mexico simply isn't on Obama's radar at the moment. But rest assured amigos, the the Republican party has you in their thoughts and considers you as worthy of racist mockery as the colored folk!


For what it's worth, we think "Star Spangled Beaner" would have been a lot funnier.

    "No jodas con el Burro" Update: Announced within two hours of posting:

    I wanted you to be first to know that I have decided to withdraw my candidacy to become your next chairman.

    Thank you for your passion for our party and for the principles that make it great. I hope that you won’t hesitate to call on me as we rebuild our majority.

    Chip

Wyclif Jean, Olga Tanon and Carlos Ponce actually turn the Star-Spangled Banner into something singable with their version of "Nuestro Himno": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4gP_pSOCz4
