Barack Obama has chosen Joss Stone to record the theme song for his campaign.
I can’t get with this choice, y’all. I mean, as far as wack ass appropriation goes these days, Joss Stone is pretty harmless.
She’s serviceable. Pleasant.
But clearly, not the real thing.
I don’t know what I expected. Something a bit more soulful (and by that I do mean the real thing). Something with more weight. Something that might actually intimate how serious and earth-shattering Obama’s candidacy is.
Joss is…just a shade too trendy, too vanilla, too boring.
Obama has more flavor than this, people. I know he does.
But then, I guess he can’t ask Luda.
I hereby register my dissent and put forth my own name:
“Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby!”
Too much, huh?
Shoulda known wit the afro, I guess.
Go ‘head, O-Man, ask Luda. Have him sing Politics at the Democratic National Convention where Hillary might get enough super delegates to change their minds and vote her as the Democratic Presidential Nominee.
Hmmm…. no. I think EB might be a bit too much for the campaign. We’ll save her for AFTER he get’s into office *laugh*.
