HE INVENTED THE REMIX
Maureen Dowd today:
...Barack Obama, who says he listens to Jay-Z along with his "old school guy" favorites like Earth, Wind & Fire and the Temptations, alluded to the rapper's 2003 hit "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" on Thursday to sweep away concerns about his pugnacity.
After conceding that the Philly debate was tough, he brushed the imaginary lint of Hillary, George and Charlie from his shoulders, in a wordless reference to Jay-Z’s lyrics....
It had to be the first time in history that a presidential candidate had a hip-hop moment.
What?! "The first"?!
Dowd wouldn't give that honor to Mitt Romney singing "Who Let the Dogs Out?" on Martin Luther King Day?
