Default Gasolina! Daddy Yankee Endorses McCain

By Michael D. Shear
PHOENIX -- The high school girls standing on the risers behind Sen. John McCain looked like any high school girls would during a talk by someone Paris Hilton might describe as "a white-haired dude." They clapped politely.

And then, when McCain introduced his special guest, they freaked out. They gasped. They put their hands over their mouths. They screamed.

Daddy Yankee, one of the country's top Latino music stars, strode out, wearing mirrored sunglasses. A Puerto Rican reggaeton recording artist, he appeared next to McCain to endorse the Republican nominee and perhaps give him a boost with Hispanic voters.

But for the girls, all that -- and McCain -- was beside the point. What they thought was going to be a boring, political event was suddenly way cool. Yankee turned and hugged a few of the girls, who put their shaking arms around him.

He then endorsed McCain, saying that "I believe in his ideals and his proposals to lead this nation" and that McCain was the best "fighter for the immigration issue."

McCain stood with Yankee in a downtown Phoenix high school that his wife, Cindy McCain, had attended as the Democratic Party opened the first day of its national convention. Daddy Yankee will be flying on the straight talk air today to California.

"I just want to say thank you Daddy Yankee," said McCain, who also referred to him as Ramon, since his given name is Ramon Ayala. McCain said Yankee has been married 15 years, had grown up poor in Puerto Rico and made "the right choice" in life.

Daddy Yankee is a hugely popular artist among Spanish speakers in the United States. His 2007 album, El Cartel: The Big Boss, was the most popular record in all Latin music categories, according to Billboard Magazine.

McCain aides have said they plan to target Hispanic voters during this election, and Yankee has the potential to help.

Yet Yankee is also an odd match for the straight-laced McCain. His hit song, "Gasolina," might appear at first to support McCain's call for more offshore oil drilling. But the song is not an ode to the kind of energy McCain usually talks about. It is about hot women, sex and cars, whose meaning is far less innocent in Puerto Rican slang.

From the Washington Post:

"She likes gasoline (give me more gasoline!) ... How she adores gasoline! (give me more gasoline)" Yankee sings, according to one translation. "For women who don't turn off their engines...You and I we have something pending."

Later today, McCain heads to Los Angeles, where he will tape an appearance on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. Tomorrow, he plans a speech to the American Legion national convention before heading to San Diego for a fundraiser.

Attention will soon shift back to McCain's choice of a vice presidential running mate. From the reaction this morning, if 16-year-old Latino girls could vote, McCain might have given more thought to a McCain-Yankee ticket.





LOL

Wait, wait...



LMAO



By the way all the above are real images, NO Photoshop...

I would rather pay more for gas. I say raise the tax rate to what they do in Europe, 75-100%. That will bring in more money, and also reduce pollution.

I just looked at voting history and I have to say I'm shocked by what I found. Over the last several presidential elections blacks have voted around 88% for the democratic candidate. The jump to 94% for Obama wasn't as big a change as I thought it was. I always figured that republicans picked up 20-30%, not 12! Obviously Obama made a difference but the Black vote is overwhelmingly Democratic every presidential election.

If you try you really can learn something new every day.
Welfare...blacks are the largest demographic in that government program, and I am sure they are all for increasing it even more. Why wouldn't they vote for a Democrat?

No I knew they voted Dem. I figured it was 70-75% but hadn't researched it. Had no idea it hovered close to 90% in a more traditional election year. I figured Obama had added a lot more to the voting percentage than he did. A jump from 88% to 94% isn't the shocking news that it was portrayed as.

My newly elected democratic supermajority state legislature anounced another proposed fee hike today to the tune of another 50 mil. Yesterdays was 500 mil. That's the 2nd hike in only two days and they aren't in office yet. I doubt at the fed level it will be much different.

Yes but Clinton had a Republican house and senate. Like I've said before, with the dems controlling the house and senate we needed a republican pres for sanity and balance. The republicans did great with Clinton reigning them in and vice versa. Add a Republican to the white house too and everything went nuts. Same will happen with the Dems. That power corrupts, absolute power corrupting thing.

Too much of the current troubles are blamed on Bush. He's at the top of the food chain so he was easy to point to. The prez steers the ship to some extent but the house and senate do the rowing and president doesn't get to flog them much. Get everyone rowing together in the same direction and sure, you get there fast but most often it will be toward an iceberg or cliff.

+ balancing the budget shouldn't be that tough. The republican's screwed up by not cutting back spending like they should have. They lost their way with the smaller gov't theme while dealing with other issues. The dems will likely balance it, but by upping taxes while continuing to add new programs.

ditto, although faith in our system is statistically flawed. the only way we are going to see a real change in government is when the states start to pull out of the union and unfuck themselves.

Last I checked if California, Texas, and Alaska were to pull out the rest of the country would be screwed. Between the 3 of us we produce more than 70% of the nations GDP.... state socialism is all that holds this **** together. Pork barreling, riders, etc can kiss my white, tax paying, ***.

soon to be state militia member.
