Hillary Scores Big Endorsement!

I wouldn’t normally post to Mother Jones but I think this merits mentioning…

In an interview with MTV News, 32-year-old Curtis James Jackson, otherwise known as rapper 50 Cent, revealed his views on our current president (“he has less compassion than a regular human being”) and came out in favor of Hillary in ’08, for reasons the candidate might call right and not-so-right:

“I’d like to see Hillary Clinton be president. It would be nice to see a woman be the actual president and … this is a way for us to have Bill Clinton be president again, and he did a great job during his term.”

While his statement might seem a little self-contradictory, I’ll go down on record as feeling a little bit the same way.

So-called “backpack” rappers like Talib Kweli and Common have been giving shout-outs to Obama in their songs lately (Common’s single, “The People,” says “My raps ignite the people like Obama”) but Hil may have a good strategy by going after the platinum-sellers. The big question is: who will get Lil Wayne on their side.

He got shot nine times and drove himself to the hospital…what else do you need?

  1. How cares what 50 thinks? Let’s get Bubba back, yea. Dope smoking, womanizing, sax playing. Oh yea! It’s a party.

    A vote for Hillary is not a vote for Bubba. It is a vote for the same ol, same ol. Bush. Clinton. Bush…..Clinton? Really now. That is progress isn’t it.

    You know that feeling you get when someone tells a joke and you don’t get it so you start to take it seriously. Then you find out that it was a joke and you feel like an idiot.You should be feeling that way right now…
