Um. Wow.

The well-known political analyst, Ludacris, has written a song indicating his support for Barack Obama. Oh goodie! I was on pins and needles wondering who Luda would thrown his considerable political clout behind.

A sample lyric from “Politics: Obama is Here:
Paint the White House black and I’m sure that’s got ’em terrified
McCain don’t belong in any chair unless he’s paralyzed

Still another:
Said I handled his biz and I’m one of his favorite rappers
Well give Luda a special pardon if I’m ever in the slammer
Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president
Hillary hated on you, so that ***** is irrelevant

And here’s the video:

Um. Wow. This makes Kanye West’s post-Katrina analysis seem like a doctoral thesis defense.

Obama has of course denounced the rapper’s sentiment that one of our greatest heroes should be paralyzed (but you can’t argue with the logic that Ludacris should be VP). A spokesman said “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 exposed to.

Of course, that doesn’t mean Obama isn’t a fan of funky beats. In a recent issue of Rolling Stone, Obama praised Ludacris as a man of “great talents” and a “great businessman.”

Now, if only Bruce Willis would start rapping, then we could decide the fate of our nation with a rap battle instead of an election.
