Ludacris and the B word

Hillary Clinton Referred to with B word in Rap Song

The Obama camp has distanced itself from rap singer Ludacris whose new song, Politics: Obama is Here, refers to Hillary Clinton as a bitch, John McCain as headed for a wheelchair and George W. Bush as mentally handicap.

I hope the Obama campaign will not have to distance itself from me but I’m afraid I used the “B” word myself recently. I said, “If you think Hillary was being bitchy just wait. I think we are going to see John McCain become the queen bitch.”

The statement from Barack Obama's camp

“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."
