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.
