"I am shocked and appalled that anyone would think this is appropriate as it clearly does not move us in the right direction."
Exactly. It does not move the GOP, Republicans in the right direction, AT ALL. ( and if you don't know what this is about, here.)
We already saw this through the racist antic of Rush Limbaugh. We already saw hate fest at the Palin rallies and even saw the "B" girl lie to state Obama Supporters attacked her. So, the GOP and Republicans continue to proceed, in lock step with a racist CD that is supposed to be funny.
Here are the hit tracks from the CD, that was sent out to RNC members:
Saltsman, a personal friend of conservative satirist Paul Shanklin, sent a 41-track CD along with a note to national committee members...
...The CD, called "We Hate the USA," lampoons liberals with such songs as "John Edwards' Poverty Tour," "Wright place, wrong pastor," "Love Client #9," "Ivory and Ebony" and "The Star Spanglish banner."
In other words, no ethnic group is spared by the mockery. Isn't this just lovely, mocking the Hispanic Group, one that Republicans need for the west and Florida, but they lost disastrously this cycle. Keep it up, you will surely keep winning with good old GOPers like this around.
Finally, to the GOP, Republicans if the American Public wanted all the above, WE WOULD HAVE VOTED FOR IT.
Now Ken Blackwell, former SoS of Ohio who ran against Strickland in 2006 and was the first race to be called because he lost that badly, says this:
"Unfortunately, there is hypersensitivity in the press regarding matters of race. This is in large measure due to President-Elect Obama being the first African-American elected president," said Blackwell, who would be the first black RNC Chairman, in a statement forwarded to Politico by an aide. "I don't think any of the concerns that have been expressed in the media about any of the other candidates for RNC chairman should disqualify them. When looked at in the proper context, these concerns are minimal. All of my competitors for this leadership post are fine people."
