How Cool Is Your President?, Hip-Hop Radio Edition

 

As you may be aware if you’ve browsed Drudge today, the president took time out of his schedule to call into a Miami radio program in order to weigh in on one of the most pressing crises of our day: I’m speaking, of course, of the ongoing feud between R&B pop-stars and American Idol co-hosts Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.

The feud boiled over a couple weeks ago with Nicki calling Mariah a @!#$ and a 3#$%^ing $%^& on camera. Then Mariah said Nicki made a death threat. And then rock’n’roll went to die in a corner somewhere. But I digress…

What you may not be aware of is that this radio call-in, in which the president calmly explains to radio host Michael Yo (who styles himself as “a half-black brother with a Korean mother” — in case you’re interested) just why it is that he’s so confident that the two pop divas can overcome their differences (and thus resolve a crisis that threatens to stir up enough interest to keep America’s worst and longest-running televised karaoke contest alive for one more season) is part of a series of radio call-ins that the president’s campaign has arranged in order to shore up the waning enthusiasm of his base within the Urban Adult Contemporary radio demographic. More simply put, MC Obama needs your vote.

“I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they’re moving forward and not going backwards,” the prezzy reassured concerned listeners, while the tick-tock of the nuclear crisis in Iran sounded somewhere deep beneath the static of his phone connection.

Listen if you dare.

    If MC O-bey can appear on The View rather than give press conferences, then President Romney can appear on Ricochet rather than subject himself to a Whitehouse press corps that will despise him. Just sayin’.

    “a half-black brother with a Korean mother”

    I thought that was Tiger Woods.

    If Obama’s influence works its usual effects, valuable extensions may be disattached.

    I suspect that this represents the highest level of discourse of which Obama is fluent, or capable, without a teleprompter.

    How appropriate for our President to phono-op with feuding celebrities du-jour. Must make dealing with Republicans seem more palatable somehow.

    This craven pitch for elderly voters has got to stop . 

    I say Tupac and Biggie at 10 paces.

    I believe everything he’s done is to buck him up for the debate.

    We cannot install a boring competent Mormon in the White House nearly fast enough.

    What does either Mariah or Nicki have to do with rock’n’roll?

    further demeaning the office.

    The founders would weep openly at both Clinton and Obama on this front.

    Stupid, stupid men doing stupid interviews with people that drag the culture down.

    I’m beyond disgusted at anyone who votes for this pathetic excuse for a leader.

    “Mr. President, Ambassador Stevens is on line two. He says it’s urgent”

    “Urgent? I’m trying to negotiate a beer summit for Mariah and Nicki, and he thinks his problems are urgent?”

    I agree. Cut off the media who are not playing ball, such as TIME and their photo shoot of Paul Ryan. how many times do they have to stick their thumb in the right’s eye?

    Peter Robinson did amsuperb interview with Paul Ryan. Where is it? In the archives. Romney on Ricochet -yes!

    When the Prez mentioned the outstanding part of these artists, did he run it by Michelle first?

    You dawgs don’t understand. If Obama doesn’t keep his base energized, he’s done. He’ll be rapping at the Apollo with Michelle layin’ down the beat on a snare drum before we’re finished.

    Mariah Carey was cool… when Clinton was in office.

    It was a sad day when MTV posed the question “boxers or briefs” to Clinton… and sadder when he answered. This is another of those beneath the office moments.

    Actually, I’d say commenting on the Minaj/Carey feud demonstrates the true intellectual depth of The One. Any subject of more import than that and old Barry is in over his head.
