RUSH: You’ve gotta hear this. There is a new song by the rapper Ludacris. Now, Obama likes this guy. Obama says he admires the ‘artistry’ of Ludacris. No, he does. Now, in this song, Ludacris basically says that Hillary is a b-i-itch. Now, Cookie bleeped that. I wish she hadn’t, but it’s bleeped. In this song Ludacris says that McCain should be paralyzed and that Bush is mentally handicapped. A new song supporting Obama by the artist Ludacris.

BEGIN LUDACRIS SONG


Hillary hated on you, so that (bleep) is irrelevant
Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what?
if you said it then you meant it how you want it have a gut!
and all you other politicians trying to hate on my man,
watch us win a majority vote in every state on my man
you can’t stop what’s bout to happen, we bout to make history
the first black president is destined and it’s meant to be
the threats ain’t fazing us, the nooses or the jokes
so get off your ass, black people, it’s time to get out and vote!
paint the White House black and I’m sure that’s got ’em terrified
McCain don’t belong in ANY chair unless he’s paralyzed
Yeah, I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and I throw ’em like candy wrap
cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant
and you the worst of all 43 presidents
get out and vote or the end will be near
the world is ready for change because Obama is here!
’cause Obama is here!
The world is ready for change because Obama is here!

END LUDACRIS SONG

RUSH: This is just a tune, a song recorded by the artist Ludacris who is — I guess he’s on Obama’s iPod. Obama likes the guy. Let me translate some of this for you in case you weren’t able to hear it all. ‘Hillary hated on you so that [b-i-]itch is irrelevant,’ is how it began. ‘McCain don’t belong in ANY chair unless he’s paralyzed. Yeah, I said it, ’cause Bush is mentally handicapped. Ball up all of his speeches and I throw ’em like candy wrap while you talk and I hear nothing even relevant and you the worst of all 43 presidents.’ I suggest that the Obama camp keep this coming. I do. We need more of this. McCain does have an ad. Let’s go sound bite 23 here. This ad has video of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. But it’s not them endorsing McCain. This is an ad that questions whether or not Obama is ready for leadership, and it’s a juxtaposition of photos of the throng of 200,000 in Germany at the Victory Column with little shots of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. It’s designed to make the audience appear to be just a bunch of pop culture bozos who have no substance to them whatsoever. Here’s the audio of the ad.

FEMALE ANNOUNCER: He’s the biggest celebrity in the world. But is he ready to lead? With gas prices soaring, Barack Obama says ‘no’ to offshore drilling and says he’s raising taxes on electricity? Higher taxes, more foreign oil. That’s the real Obama.

MCCAIN: I’m John McCain, and I approved this message.

RUSH: Just imagine the pictures of the throng of 200,000 there at the Victory Column with it made to look like Britney Spears and what’s-her-face, Paris Hilton, are part of the mix.

Ladies and gentlemen, quickly, a story today from TIME Magazine. Now, I’ve seen this referenced a number of times. There might be a lazy gene. Those of you who are couch potatoes, there may be nothing you can do about it. You may be genetically wired for that. ‘Have you ever wondered why you can’t get off the couch and exercise — despite paying for an expensive gym membership, despite your New Year’s resolutions, even despite the doctor’s scolding at your last check-up? Turns out that your inertia may be coded right into your genes.’ They’re studying this, ‘J. Timothy Lightfoot, a kinesiologist, and his team at University of North Carolina, Charlotte, suggest that genetics may indeed predispose some of us for sloth. Using mice specially bred and selected according to their activity levels…’ It’s like a pretty long story.

It talks about how the mice behaved, some genetically predisposed to exercise and some not, and it pretty much (according to the mice behavior) substantiated the findings and the theory behind all of this. But the last paragraph here is what posed the interesting question. ‘Chemistry is not destiny, of course. Lightfoot hopes to use his research to help determine which patients may need a bigger boost to get moving — he thinks that perhaps close supervision by trainers or rewards for exercising will encourage genetic lazybones to get the gym. And maybe one day, he speculates, there might even be a drug to compensate for’ laziness, and then the question is: ‘A drug that makes you want to exercise?’ Would I take such a drug? If they ever have a pill that makes you exercise, makes you want to exercise, would I take it? ‘Cause I hate exercise. I despise it. I hate walking, as I’ve shared with you on many occasions. It’s just a pain all the way around. But if somebody gave me a pill and made me want to exercise? I don’t even want to want to exercise. I don’t think I would take it.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Phil Spector, another brilliant participant of the music industry, the musical arts. This is from the Los Angeles Times blog today: ‘They just keep coming, these dubious endorsements for Obama. The Times’ eagle-eyed Harriet Ryan spotted Phil Spector, the famous rock entrepreneur and infamous date showing up for a court hearing in Los Angeles wearing a very obvious ‘Barack Obama Rocks’ pin.’ So from Ludacris (we will continue to play that song, by the way, during the course of the upcoming days) now to Phil Spector endorsing The Messiah, the Most Merciful Lord Barack Obama.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I want to go back to this Ludacris song. Ludacris, of course, a rap artist admired by Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama. This is a song endorsing Obama, but it is the attitude that’s in this song that I think is actually representative of the attitude of many in this country on the left, and perhaps even among those that would serve in an Obama administration.

END LUDACRIS SONG

The rap artist Ludacris, a giant supporter of Barack Obama. Now, what is the attitude here? I know it’s rap, and the attitude of rap is anger, it’s anger and rage. But isn’t that also the attitude of the Democrat Party today? Elected officials, high-ranking Democrat officials, Democrat voters, kook fringe bloggers, they’re angry, and they’ve been angry since 2000. They are enraged. So the change that Obama talks about is basically, ‘We’re gonna pay you back. We are gonna pay you back for what you stole from us in 2000. We’re going to pay you back. We’re gonna get even. We’re gonna right the injustices that have happened to us, because of what happened in Florida in 2000.’ The change that Obama is talking about is being interpreted by many of the dingbats that want to support him as vengeance, as revenge, and is rooted in hatred. Now, the Ludacris song is a standalone thing, but I think it is exemplary representative of the attitude throughout. It is callous, cold, it is mean-spirited, it’s insulting, and of course this just carries forward the attitude of much of the Democrat political hierarchy, especially since the Iraq war began, but really after Florida 2000. It’s been seven-and-a-half years of it now, if not more. So that’s the change. But when you talk about real change, what would be real change in this country? What would be real change? I have the answers, of course, as I always do.

RUSH: And, ladies and gentlemen, Obama did meet with the rap artist Ludacris — real name is Chris Bridges — in his Chicago office in November of 2006 to discuss things. Yes, it happened, my friends.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Earlier in the program, ladies and gentlemen, we played you a song by the rap music artist Ludacris (real name: Chris Bridges.) Ludacris is a good friend, a close associate of Barack Obama. The Obama ‘campaign’ has now responded to this song.

END LUDACRIS SONG

This song has been responded to. It’s a rap song. It’s typical. There’s nothing surprising about it. But here’s the statement from the Obama ‘campaign.’ Ahem. ‘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,’ said spokesman Bill Burton. ‘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,’ and everybody is going, ‘Oh, wow! (clapping) Man, Obama, they shut this down!’

Obama didn’t say anything! As usual, Obama hasn’t condemned anything. Bill Burton did! By the way, it may have happened, but I haven’t heard Obama condemn all those rap lyrics that often. Have you heard him condemn rap lyrics? Now, I don’t read People, and I don’t read US Weekly, and I don’t watch E! Entertainment Weekly or whatever these 6:30, 7:30 p.m. little mindless entertainment shows are. So, you know, when the Obama family was exposed on television, he may have said he didn’t like rap lyrics. He may have said it in his book. I haven’t read the books. But I haven’t heard him making these statements. He may have said it at the NAACP convention. I haven’t heard it. All I know is Obama did not condemn this, Bill Burton did. Obama met with Ludacris in 2006, in November of 2006 to discuss things, and then in Obama Chicago office. They discussed things. They had many important things to discuss. Ludacris’ political activism and some programs, typical mindless pap charities. Yeah, well, you add this guy with Jeremiah Wright and you add this guy in with Bill Ayers, and the next time Obama does speak about this, he’ll say, ‘This is not the Ludacris I knew.’
