Satire, people... look it up.
New York Daily News: "Newman explained the song on his website, saying he often writes in character and that listeners "can`t always trust or believe the narrators" in his songs.

He said he was inspired to write the song by some of the debate about President Obama`s presidency — which he believes is fueled in part by his race.

"I think there are a lot of people who find it jarring to have a black man in the White House and they want him out," he wrote. "They just can`t believe that there`s not a more qualified white man. You won`t get anyone, and I do mean anyone, to admit it."

My ex drug me to a play that was based on Randy Newman and his songs. It sounds horrible but the play was actually really good. The funniest part was when Micky Mouse came out and saved the day with sacks of money.

Newman is a satirist, since there seems to be some confusion.

You don`t understand Randy Newman if you think this is bigotry.

tatripp: Yeah, but there was more evidence against Bill Clinton, aka `The Blue Dress`, than against Herman Cain. So I didn`t give the accusations much merit.

me too crackrjak. I liked Herman Cain but I figure he probably did have the affair or at least some guilt for something or other.

coffeekoneko: I shouldn`t even dignify your trolling with a response. But I was supportive of Herman Cain, until the liberals persuaded Ginger Winter into accusing him of an affair.

He`s always been a douchebag. Now he`s a bigot to boot. And yes, I know he`s an Obama supporter. He`s a LIBERAL bigot. He`s attempting (and failing miserably) to satirize Obama opponents as racist, which is the liberal declaration of intellectual bankruptcy. It is so common these days, it`s becoming a meme.

Wonder how few internet trolls are aware the art was perfected before they were even born.

Randy Newman is an Obama supporter. This song is along the same lines as his song "Short People".

`I don`t know if I should laugh at it like a joke, hate it for the racist piece of poo it is, or just feel sad that someone was stupid and evil enough to come up with it.`

Methinks you don`t know what racism is. This is merely a commentary on the lack of diversity we`ve had from representation, despite being a diverse culture. Obviously written prior to 2008.
