RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 18. This is on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show yesterday. It’s Kanye West.
WEST: There’s no way that Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman. Right now Barbara Walters is calling her every day. Of course we’re the most interesting. Nobody’s looking at what Obama is wearing, nobody’s — Michelle Obama can’t Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagram.
RUSH: Now, we’ve all been sitting around waiting for the turning point here, and a lot of people think that Obama’s in the middle of an Obamacare meltdown. But look at this now through the perspective of the low-information voter. Kanye West has just dumped on Michelle (My Belle) Obama, I mean, big time. He’s mad that his girl, Kim Kardashian, isn’t on the cover of Vogue, and she can Instagram a much better picture than Michelle can. Who we fooling here, he’s saying. And of course the picture he’s talking about was Kim’s post-birth butt. Did you see that picture? It was on TMZ and it was above the story on me coming out of the LA restaurant being asked about somebody I’d never heard of.
It’s a minor little thing here, but the low-information crowd, they love Kanye and they love Kimmie, and if Kanye’s out now dishing Obama as a style dullard and Michelle Obama as a style nothing, can you imagine if the low-information crowd now has to choose sides between the Kardashians and the Obamas? What will happen?
