President Barack Obama is at the vanguard of a coordinated effort to silence political opponents in an effort falsely sold as concern over good government, the Senate’s top Republican said on Friday.
Today President Obama’s personal bard, will.i.am, dropped another single from his long-delayed album, #willpower. And in what is becoming a regularly scheduled program, yet another lesser-known musician is crying foul that the pop music panderer has jacked his song and released it as his own.
British DJ duo Mat Zo and Arty have taken up arms on Twitter, accusing will.i.am of ripping off their production and adding something allegedly resembling “lyrics” sung with woman-beater Chris Brown.
Let’s look at will.i.am’s “Let’s Go,“ which might be short for “Let’s Go Steal Euro DJ Song“:
Ever since the election of the Best Left-Handed Shameless Gunner-in-Chief, America’s relationship with basketball has strengthened. The sport has a mystique. America has been hypnotized into thinking Obama Election Day pick-up games are somehow more competitive than MJ’s Bulls vs. Isiah’s Pistons.
At least the Oval Office just plays pick-up. The Departments of Interior and Transportation have caught the basketball fever so bad, they’ve dropped more than $20K on rebounding machines. Several rebounding machines. Meanwhile, the most the Department of Education spends on hoops is time wasted on Arne Duncan rebounding POTUS air balls.
The dreams of Obama speechwriters looking to make it big in Hollywood sustained another crushing blow when an NBC-affliate in Kentucky displayed some critical acumen by dumping a new episode of 1600 Penn, the mediocre brainchild of White House-ex pat and birther-humorist Jon Lovett, in favor of a 20-year-old Matlock movie. And the Matlock movie earned higher ratings.
The AV Club rolls the game tape:
President Barack Obama Monday attacked Republicans for attempting to use the debt ceiling as leverage to lower the deficit and America’s $16 trillion national debt. Obama’s remarks were in stark contrast to a speech he gave on the debt ceiling during his time as a U.S. senator.
