Party of hip-hop

As a politics and (occasional) hip-hop blog, I feel that I cannot let this one pass. Noted rap fan and McCarthyist Rep. Michele Bachman, at CPAC, offers to GOP Chair Michael Steele: "You be da man! You be da man."

We commend Rep. Bachman on her fluent, totally appropriate and non-condescending use of urban slang, and congratulate Michael Steele on this early success translating GOP principles into "hip-hop settings."
