I was going, gentle readers, to write something about that stupid Barack Obama song being peddled by some GOP stalwart named Chip Saltsnan who wants to be the party's new chairman. I was going to, but I can't. It's just too tacky to quote. The rhymes aren't very good--"Farrakhan" and "won" rhyme about as well as "on" and "won." Too tacky. Too vulgar. Can't do it.
Fortunately, there are lots of smart Republicans who will never elect a twit like this as party chairman. Period. Full stop.
