Whitest. Candidate. Ever.
I haven't said anything about the 2008 election yet, but after seeing this clip (courtesy of The Dose), I can no longer remain silent. It's a video of a Mitt Romney photo-op in Jacksonville where he, in an attempt to relate to the black urban youth of America, drops some lyrics from "Who Let the Dogs Out". Romney was definitely kicking it old school, since the oldest kids in the video couldn't have been more than 10 years old when the Baha Men were enjoying their 15 minutes of fame. Not to mention that I have serious doubts as to whether "Who Let the Dogs Out" was ever a very popular tune in the inner cities of America. In all seriousness though, it is mildly refreshing to see a Republican addressing a predominantly black audience.
