Once again, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is hurt by the ones who love him.
On YouTube yesterday, rapper Ludacris released a song called "Politics," in which he denigrates President Bush, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) -- all in the space of about two minutes.
"Well, give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer/Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president," he raps. In the next line, the three-time Grammy Award winner calls Clinton an "irrelevant [slur for female]." He goes on to suggest that 71-year-old McCain belongs in a wheelchair rather than the White House.
The Obama campaign was quick to distance the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee from the song. Spokesman Bill Burton told Politico, "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, 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."
they need no encouragement, they're just being themselves. The thing that concerns me is why so many of these negative people are drawn to Barack Obama? Are they reading more in to what he says, or is he silently giving them a nod?

I heard this piece on the radio yesterday. All I can say is, keep up the good work Obama supporters. You'll eventually dig him a hole deep enough that he can't get out of.
Well, one can always hope right?
