UPDATE: Obama Camp Calls Ludacris Song ‘Outrageously Offensive’

Barack Obama’s presidential campaign calls Ludacris’ song, “Politics (Obama is Here),” “outrageously offensive,” according to the AP.

In the song, the Atlanta rapper, who is an Obama supporter, calls Hillary Clinton a “b—-,” says President George W. Bush is “mentally handicapped,” and that John McCain doesn’t belong in “any chair unless he’s paralyzed.”

In an email, Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said:

“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. This song is not only outrageously offensive to Sen. Clinton, Rev. Jackson, Sen. 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.

Ludacris Sounds Off On Bush, McCain, Hillary and Jesse

Not to be outdone by rappers Nas and Jay-Z, who have both spoken out recently about Barack Obama and the current political climate, Ludacris is adding his own two cents with his song, “Politics (Obama is Here).”

Ludacris, a staunch Obama supporter, uses some politically incorrect verses, skewering not only President Bush and Republican presidential nominee John McCain, but also former Democratic candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton and Rev. Jesse Jackson:

Hillary hated on you, so that b—- is irrelevant. Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what? If you said it then you meant it. How you want it head or gut?

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 just throw ‘em like candy wrap ’cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant and you the worst of all 43 presidents.

Ludacris even attempts to rally the black community to support Obama at the polls, urging, “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.”
