Don't let them get to you.
I like Barack Obama's response to Rush Limbaugh's "Barack The Magic Negro:"
HOST: "I have to do this because Rush is on our station and we'll see him tomorrow, have you heard the parody song, 'Barack the Magic Negro'?"Detroit News, via The Plank.
OBAMA: (Laughing.) You know, I have not heard it, but I've heard of it. I confess that don't listen to Rush on a daily basis. On the other hand, I'm not one of these people who takes myself so seriously that I get offended by every comment made about me. You know, the -- you know, what Rush does is entertainment, and although it's probably not something that, you know, I listen to much, I don't --
HOST: But you said not every day, so you do listen a little then, and why wouldn't you?
OBAMA: I don't mind. I don't mind folks poking fun at me. That's part of the job.
