Barack's Camp Issues Statement About Ludacris Song

Ludacris has made it known who he's voting for in a new song that slams Bush, Hillary, and McCain, and glorifies Obama. But Obama's not singing Luda's praises back at him. The Obama camp has actually slammed the lyrics to the song, calling them outrageously offensive.

The tune calls the possible Obama presidency destiny, and goes on to criticize Bush and McCain.

Barack's camp issued this statement regarding the song:

"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," campaign spokesman Bill Burton said in an e-mail statement Wednesday. "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."

Probably not the reaction he was hoping for! Sometimes less is more.
