we made you

which as any fule kno is the title of the latest hit ditty from the great Eminem, the video for the few who may not have seen it yet is here

the reason for mentioning it is twofold: first because it is funny (and the Sarah Palin lookalike - I hope it is a lookalike - bit is funnier) and second because as so often I find, wisdom about current affairs comes from Dr Dre, who makes an excellent appearance in this video too. The Dre-ster discovered Em, and has been known to say that he wouldn't have taken him on if he had known he was white. Whatever.

Hopi Sen quotes Dr Dre with these words:

What's the difference between me and you?
You talk a good one - but you don't do what you supposed to do."

Yep, Mr Salter. Your latest trumpetings about your public support for the Gurkhas (in Reading East obviously) don't mention that you forgot to vote for them when their case came before Parliament. And your supposed saintliness on expenses that you remind us of constantly omits the fact that you claimed over £40K between 1997 and 2001 for a non-existent London property.

that one who's just resigned as governor of Alaska and made a very odd speech doing so, which you can find on youtube

Wow, how cool & trendy racism is when it's from a black person !! We await the indignation of the Guardianistas. In the meantime, here's some tumbleweed.

"cool and trendy"? Oh. I didn't realise. Is Dr Dre black?
