Drinking From Puddles welcomes interview guest Paris !!

Paris hails from the San Francisco Bay Area and was catapulted onto the national hip-hop scene in 1990 with his hit single and album The Devil Made Me Do It, after earning a degree in economics from the University of California at Davis. Originally released on Tommy Boy Records, his first single from that album, "Break The Grip of Shame," was banned by MTV. Since then his uncompromising stance on political issues and biting social commentary have both aided and hindered his quest to bring solid music and messages to the masses.

New McCain ad: Obama is a big scary black man who wants to teach your children about sex

 New McCain ad: Obama is a big scary black man who wants to teach your children about sex

Not really sure what to say about this one. It certainly plumbs hitherto unfounded depths of sleaze.

I don't know the particulars of the law in question. I'm looking into it.

-A

UPDATE: The Obama camp responds:

"It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited  political attack against a father of two young girls – a position that his friend Mitt Romney also holds.  Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn’t define what honor was.  Now we know why."

LATE UPDATE: The law in question was from Obama's time in the Illinois Legislature. The kindergarten sex-ed referenced by the McCain ad amounts to teaching the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.
