President Barack Obama

Sounds so good, huh? President Barack Obama. I usually try to keep my language pretty pg13 on the site, but FUCK YES. Hopefully he governs as brilliantly as he campaigns. Lord knows we need it. I'll now quote an interview with DMX the rapper earlier this year, like sometime during the primaries. Again, I don't like to curse myself on here, but if I'm quoting some public figure, they're going to say what they're going to say. This is from Ashmi Rawlins' excellent, totally infamous interview in XXL Magazine.

Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.

You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!

Barack Obama, yeah.


What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
I ain’t really paying much attention.

I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, “Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit” [laughs] “That ain’t your fuckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?

Ah DMX. DMX really did make the best sound effects in his rap songs. Lots of great growls, 'huh's, and 'what's. Go Jeff Merkley!! Also, my favorite race, Jean Shahine unseated John Sununu. Great names in the NH Senate race. Live Blogging!
