Tea Party rap!: Politik busts political rhymes while ralliers struggle to bust moves

The Tea Party Express rally staged yesterday at the Capitol was fairly typical of many protests against Barack Obama and anyone who ever said anything positive about him, with one notable exception -- a performance by rapper David Saucedo, who goes by the name Politik. Judging by the video seen here, he ain't no Lee Greenwood -- and he's not as awful as anticipated, either, despite ultra-clunky couplets like, "Limited government's the only solution/Our only foundation should be the Constitution." Still, what's funniest about this clip is watching several middle-aged white women getting down behind him. They're about as funky as Susan Boyle. Word!
