Ludacris Blasts Clinton, McCain in Pro-Obama Song

Rapper Ludacris, who owns a spot on Obama's Ipod, has released a new song called, "'Politics: Obama Is Here."

As you might imagine, controversy is already a-brewing.

Here are some highlights:

Hillary hated on you, so that b^$&%* is irrelevant

Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified

McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed
Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped

Take a listen:

Obama's camp condemned the song earlier today:

"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," said spokesman Bill Burton. "This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator 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."
