RUSH: I have a campaign ad. Mr. Jay-Z has just posted a campaign ad for Obama. It’s at the Obama campaign website, BarackObama.com. Listen to this…
JAY-Z: (dramatic music) For so long there was a voice that was silenced out there, you know, as far as exercising your right to vote. I think it was a voice that was silent because people had lost hope. They didn’t believe that their voice mattered or counted. He made it mean something for the first time for a lot of people having someone in office who understands how powerful our voice can be.
RUSH: Man, that’s gonna make me run out and vote, isn’t it? What the heck is that? Mr. Z, you can’t talk about Obama’s great performance or his great record in office? We gotta reelect Obama ’cause he gave people a voice who didn’t have a voice before? Have you seen the unemployment rate in the black community? Have you seen the illegitimacy rate in the black community?
Have you seen the illiteracy rate? For crying out loud, it’s skyrocketing. I don’t think Mr. Z has seen it. I think Mr. Z knows it. (interruption) Yeah, he’s partying on a different level. Yeah, and he Obama at The 40/40 Club, Mr. Z’s sports bar where they got that pyramid of champagne at 300 bucks a bottle.
