“Barrack the Magic Negro”

Free speech can be a bitch sometimes. When nitwits go over the line of decency, good taste, and common sense, most of America is appalled. And we should be – as we vigorously defend our most important freedom- Freedom of Speech. And we must defend it – even for assholes.

Conservative Republicans are tossing around the song above which is sung to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon.” It was first played on the national airwaves in 2007. Any guess by whom? Bingo! Mr. Oxy-HYPOCRITE-Cotin himself, Rush Limbaugh. Liberals are screaming all over the country as loudly  as the blind people who are bellowing over Saturday Night Live’s tasteless portrayal of New York Governor, David Paterson.

Everyone should just take a deep breath and smile. Smile because this is America and any looney is free to say or sing just about anything that doesn’t directly threaten other people. May it always be so. Smile because trounced Republicans are floundering around for a new identity and this song is now associated with them. It’s an association at which most Americans will hold their noses. Smile because in the grand scheme of things, this song means about as much as a pimple on a gnat’s ass.

And smile because the man we elected President is now assuming office with quiet dignity and resolve as President Hayseed and Vice President Hateseed sink into oblivion.

Smile – America is dawning again.
