Republican Senator axby Chambliss Tuesday held on to his Georgia Senate seat, defeating  challenger Democrat Jim Martin who has already conceded.

Original blog enry ...

Normally the time has passed for political commentary regarding the recent election; however, we will make an exception in a response to the recently received e-mail from the “HIP HOP CAUCUS.”

The people who have put this appeal together are totally aware that any increased turnout, especially involving blacks, will favor the democrat candidate.

Therefore we think it is totally self-serving and disingenuous for rappers to portray themselves as a neutral force to simply get out the vote. Especially when the rapper’s position is so well-known in the community.

Hey Georgia Fans -

We wanted to send all of you a quick reminder, on behalf of the Hip Hop Caucus, to make some time to vote in the Georgia runoff election tomorrow!

This is another chance to make our voices heard loud and clear that the big issues of our country are important to our generation - the Hip Hop Generation!

This special runoff election is tomorrow - Tuesday, December 2nd. Vote for the Senate candidate that you believe best represents your interests, but make sure to vote!

Join us at the polls and make a difference in our country.

Here's a great website to help you find out where to go and vote:

The Hip Hop vote is a powerful voice in Georgia and everyone who voted on November 4th made their voices heard. Let's do it again tomorrow.

T.I. and Ludacris

The other face of Ludacris …

“The song ‘Politics (Obama Is Here)’ from Ludacris' mixtape The Preview has caused controversy due to lyrics in the song criticizing Reverend Jesse Jackson (‘Now Jesse talkin’ slick and apologizin’ for what?/ If you said it then you meant it’), McCain (‘McCain don’t belong in any chair unless he’s paralyzed’), President Bush (‘Yeah I said it, ‘cuz Bush is mentally handicapped/ Ball up all of his speeches and throw ‘em just like candy wraps/ ‘Cuz what you talkin’ I hear nothin’ even relevant/ And you the worst of all 43 presidents’) and insulting Hillary Clinton (‘Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant..’). <Source>

To his credit, President-elect Barack Obama refused to comment on Ludacris’ rap – and appears to be light years away from the values routinely supported by those in the rap culture: misogyny, criminality and open disdain for those in authority.  About drugs, I am not so sure.

If this is an example of the quality of voter coerced into voting democrat, I am proud to urge everyone to vote for Senator Saxby Chambliss in the Georgia run-off election.
