Ludacris bumps Barack Obama, blasts John McCain! What a surprise...
In the tune, he tears down Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Sen. John McCain.
But he gives props to Sen. Barack Obama, whom he asks to make him his vice president or give him "a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer."
According to CBS News, Ludacris, who has previously railed against Fox News' Bill O'Reilly and Oprah Winfrey (huh?), uses irreverent language in the rap song and encourages black Americans to propel Obama to victory and "paint the White House black."
The rapper saves some of his harshest critiques for McCain: "McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed."
Wow. Thanks a pantload, Ludacris. I'm sure Obama's camp is just thrilled by your support and your divisive and offensive song. Just what his presidential campaign needed.
Naturally, the Obama folks are already slamming the Ludacris song. Listen to it HERE.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton says: "As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism and degrading images that he doesn't want his daughters or any children exposed to. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual, he should be ashamed of these lyrics."
Anyone second that emotion?
