Saltsman hits big time in New York Times; Gingrich says he should be disqualified for top GOP post

Chip the Stupid Republican made the big time yesterday, making it to the pages of The New York Times and drawing the ire of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Worse, Saltsman again uncovered the GOP's Achilles Heel, race. Here is how The New York Times shockingly analyzed it:

The dispute illustrates a larger Republican challenge in the months ahead: how to oppose the first black president without seeming antiblack. There are no black Republicans in Congress, and a party spokesman could name only 2 blacks among the 168 members of the national committee. Katon Dawson, the chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party, resigned from an all-white country club in preparing for his campaign to be party chairman.

Gingrich said Salstman should be disqualified from running for chairman of the RNC.

The CD Saltsman sent out to his friends (gee, you gotta fear what he sends to his enemies) included a Rush Limbaugh Show song "Barack the Magic Negro". Even though the song is written and sung by a black man, it still does not excuse the song's incredibly bad taste. Some people will do anything to impress Limbaugh, who is on the political extreme.

Saltsman has decided to join him there. Perhaps he can get a job as a sidekick to Limbaugh, because no major campaign or national party will ever touch him again.
