The hits keep on coming...

Chip Saltsman, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s campaign manager during the Republican presidential primaries and, now a candidate to become the leader of the Republican National Committee, distributed a CD containing the satirical track “Barack the Magic Negro” as part of his campaign to win the chairmanship of the party. While the current chairman, Mike Duncan, has said all the right things in distancing himself from Saltsman's choice in musical parodies, is there any doubt the GOP will struggle to settle on a consistent strategy for reframing their party's image for several years to come? It must be damn infuriating to be a fair-minded, conservative Republican these days when there are still key factions of the party determined to pander to the lowest common denominator as the "future" of the party.
