Quote Of The Day - Red State/Blue Review Edition

The refreshing political bent [Kanye] West has displayed of late was also a no-show. Although his ad-libbed "George Bush doesn't care about black people" comment during a televised Hurricane Katrina benefit concert in September is now infamous, he referenced the current administration only twice.
Clearly disappointed Washington Post Style section writer Sarah Godfrey, reviewing Kanye West's Sunday concert in Fairfax, Virginia. In case you were living under a rock at the time, the "infamous" Kanye West video is shown below...

Even 50 Cent is on West's case for his Bush remarks, yet for the Post reviewer it's "refreshing"...

He is just a babbling fool.

It is still hilarious.

By the way, I have a detailed fact-based rebuttal to Kanye West's assertion here:

Gotta love how these folks rant & rave over how Bush is the second coming of Hitler, Stalin, & Pol Pot combined, and yet they haven't been subjected to so much as a politically motivated IRS audit in response. Much less the midnight arrests, disapperances, and reprisals against their families that routinely occur in actual dictatorships.

Get ready for a smackdown, because no lesser luminary than 50 Cent is criticizing Kanye for his comments. Take that, Sarah Godfrey! At least, according to this story.

Here is my racist comment for the day:

If you want people to take you seriously, then learn to communicate. I watched that video twice and I still can figure out what West was trying to say. I think the only complete sentence used by him was his last one ("George Bush doesn't care about black people"). Everything else was just jumbled phrases and incoherant thoughts.

Myers came across as clear and easy to understand. I assume he was reading from cards, as opposed to West who was clearly not.

I come away from this video seeing two different people - someone who has something to say, and a blabbering fool.
