Forget about Clinton

Who needs the former president to campaign for the Democrats when they could have Eminem. From today's Robert Novak's column:

Pro-Kerry Web sites are pushing for free airtime on MTV in the final days of the campaign to run the video of Eminem singing ''Mosh,'' which attacks George W. Bush, the Iraq war and the Patriot Act.

MTV's most popular music-video show is ''TRL'' (Total Request Live), which gives viewers the choice of what they want to hear. Bloggers are attempting a massive vote for Mosh to put it on the air in the closing days of the campaign.

Mosh contains a lot of unattractive Bush footage, uses the words ''F-- Bush,'' calls President Bush a ''weapon of mass destruction'' and concludes by telling viewers to vote. Eminem (real name: Marshall Mathers) is a white rapper who is notorious for misogynist and homophobic lyrics.

Well, at least we know that Maureen Dowd ("All my boomer mommy friends think Eminem is, uh, hot!") really does speak for the Democratic party.

We have really come so far since the '80s.
