Irrelevant Reporting Alert

I’ve read somewhere that Barack Obama is getting three times the press that John McCain is getting, but that the overwhelming majority of that is negative.  Well, with those kind of numbers, maintaining such a pace requires the occasional puff piece or three.

Witness this from the Washington Post.  It seems Ludacris has written a new song which is offensive.  Whoa.  And it makes fun of Hillary Clinton and John McCain.  So why is this controversial?  Because he says that he’s Barack’s favourite rapper, because Obama said he has some Ludacris stuff on his iPod.

Black presidential candidate; rapper.  Paging James Lawrence. . . .
