Salon.com Politics

Eminem gets political!?! "With his history of homophobia and his long-running beef with MoveOn supporter Moby, Eminem is an even less likely lefty hero than Howard Stern. But the just-released video for his new anti-Bush song 'Mosh,' makes 'Fahrenheit 9/11' look like a GOP campaign spot, and it will almost certainly reach an audience that wouldn't think of shelling out for a documentary.

Kerry/Bush both favor war and continue with the pretense that Sadam was responsible for 911 (Bush knocked down the towers to gain support for the war). And though homosexuality is a mental illness, morality wasn't the deciding factor. Rather the U.S. favors a government led by military force and voted for the devil we know. Bush is an ignorant puppet but a "good" man, a backslapper, and the best anti-christ / Commander in Chief we can hope for. When our parents die we will lead. In the meantime youth stand in line for hours at precincts set up for Republicans who surely don't stand in line. And partying, ok for concerts, isn't condoned for voters (institutionalized biases which slant the polls in the opposition's favor). So, maybe if Kerry had spoken out against killing, if the APA addressed latency as a mental illness, or if polls were more youth friendly? But for now we can only hope for a youth revolution. I suggest a vote for Eminem (go buy his album).

While you have me with the vote for Em, you lost me with the homosexuality is an illness argument. Did you know homophobia is now considered an illness as well?
