Rush Limbaugh’s Parody On Obama

You know I haven’t paid much attention to Rush Limbaugh in quite sometime. It seems to me that his influence has waned significantly in recent years and he is but a shadow of his old self. But today I heard for the first time his musical parody about Barack Obama. The parody, called “Barack The Magic Negro” is sung to the tune of “Puff The Magic Dragon” and is sung by someone who is supposed to be singing as if he were Al Sharpton. It is an incredibly stupid thing to do and once again proves why Limbaugh is no longer someone to be taken seriously. It is also another sign of how people have no idea how to deal with someone like Obama.

The song is as much a dig at Sharpton as it is at Obama, which again shows how people like Rush think since in his mind, the two men are obviously linked. To Obama’s credit by the way, he said he was not disturbed by the song and that he did not take such things seriously. That kind of brush-off is exactly how we all need to respond to people like Limbaugh who in the end are clearly threatened by people like Obama and what they stand for.

One thought on “Rush Limbaugh’s Parody On Obama

  1. The Green Phantom says:

    As usual, you are just another liberal who doesn’t want to be confused by the facts. Here is the actual genesis of the parody:For example, will Matt or Meredith mention that the whole thing was precipitated by a column in the Los Angeles Times by David Ehrenstein entitled “Obama the ‘Magic Negro’” (emphasis added):AS EVERY CARBON-BASED life form on this planet surely knows, Barack Obama, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois, is running for president. Since making his announcement, there has been no end of commentary about him in all quarters — musing over his charisma and the prospect he offers of being the first African American to be elected to the White House.But it’s clear that Obama also is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination — the “Magic Negro.”The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. “He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist,” reads the description on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_Negro .So it was other liberals who made an issue of Obama’s race. Conservatives merely mock liberal hypocrisy like Obama not being “authentically black.”As for Rush’s influence waning…you wish! Why do you think the Today show did the segment? Obama is simply the failed, liberal policies of the 1960’s wrapped up in an appealing, articulate package. Fortunately, the American public is not as gullible as Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, and Harry Reid hope.
