Barackin' the vote.

I would not normally be so willing to pimp for a national newspaper such as the National Post, but this is not an ordinary circumstance. First off, the article was written by the wonderful Jian Ghomeshi, who I think is pretty awesome and was completely unaware that he is now working for "the man". It's okay though. As long as he keeps coming up with fricken sweet titles like this for his articles, I'll keep reading them:

He's got 99 problems, but the youth vote ain't one.

The article is about a moment on the campaign trail with Barack Obama that has turned into a little bit of a phenomenon. There is already something about it on wikipedia. It's kind of fantastic that he has stuck a chord with the young voters. It's been a long damn time since anyone even pretended to care about them. Check out the clip!

I certainly NEVER thought I would see the day when Jay-Z gets repped in a campaign speech. I love it!
