    Found it more funny than offensive. That said, I can understand why a GOP group would take the guy off stage because ultimately it was a political function and god knows there's always that potential for something like that to be spun to be worse than it was.

    You mean here as in this thread? or here as in this website? Because I am sure that there are cases on both sides of the isle making more of an issue than needs to be...It's called politics. But, I ofcourse think it is more prevalent on the liberal side.

    Sure it's a phrase...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_the_Magic_Negro

    [B][U]"Barack the Magic Negro"[2] is a song by American political satirist Paul Shanklin
    Republicans liked the obscure article written a year before the election so much that they even wrote a song about it...

    In turn they liked that song so much that they started sending themselves copy of the song.. for Christmas

    Chip Saltsman, a candidate for chairman of the Republican National Committee, sent out CDs containing the song to 168 other RNC members as a Christmas gift, hoping to bolster his 2009 campaign for RNC chair. The move backfired, Saltsman dropped his bid to head the RNC, and ultimately African American Republican Michael Steele won the chairmanship.
    Who is being dishonest here? The liberal who asserted that for Republicans think humor is calling Barack Obama the magic Negro or the Republicans who keep saying they thought the phrase was so funny that they needed to make a song about it?

    Obama impersonator booted from GOP gig

    Tough act for fake Obama

    A COMEDIAN impersonating President Barack Obama and hired to perform at the Republican Leadership Conference was less than a raging success. Reggie Brown (above) opened his act by joking about Mr Obama's family history.

    The audience, which was nearly entirely white, watched with befuddlement as the impersonator told them to look into the future to see what the Obamas would look like when they were retired. An image of a feuding husband and wife from the TV show Sanford and Son was flashed on screens.

    He also made derogatory jokes about Republicans Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich before his hosts interrupted him with loud music and escorted him from the stage, cutting his act.

    Seems the GOP can't laugh at themselves. Once the jokes were about them, they yanked the guy off the stage faster than Weiner yanks off his skivvies on the Internet.

    But, he's making fun of Obama. Therein lies the difference.

    Is that why Republicans pulled him off the stage, cutting his act short?

    I don't get why they pulled him. To be honest I didn't find him terribly original, but I don't think he was offensive. And he has the voice and mannerisms down pat.

    Those were some pretty mild jokes, really.

    I get why. Did you see the end when they cut him short? It came following a jab at Romney and Pawlenty and mid-stream into Bachmann. What the hell was he thinking? You can't make fun of the GOP in front of the GOP ... they have no tolerance.
