7332: Fiddy, Filibuster And F-Word.
Tuesday talk in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• 50 Cent said he wants to team up with Susan Boyle. “Susan Boyle is hot right now. I got to get her on a track, for real. We’d make a hit,” said Fiddy. “She’s got an amazing voice, and together we’d get everyone dancing.” The rapper even wants to hang out with Boyle. “I’d love to take her clubbing, show her around my world. She’d have a great time.” Just keep her away from Tiger Woods.
• Senate Majority Leader Henry Reid compared GOP leaders trying to halt President Obama’s health care plan to past politicians who sought to delay slavery and other movements for equality. “Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans have come up with is this, ‘Slow down, stop everything, let’s start over,’” said Reid. “You think you’ve heard these same excuses before? You’re right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early. Let’s wait. Things aren’t bad enough.’ When women spoke up for the right to speak up, they wanted to vote, some insisted, ‘Slow down, there will be a better day to do that. The day isn’t quite right.’ When this body was on the verge of guaranteeing equal civil rights to everyone, regardless of the color of their skin, some senators resorted to the same filibuster threats that we hear today.” Yeah, but the typical Madison Avenue executives make GOP leaders look like amateurs.
• A transgender teen in Florida is suing McDonald’s for allegedly refusing to interview her for a job. One manager even left the student a voicemail stating, “We do not hire faggots.” Nice. Shouldn’t the manager have added, “Would you like some fries with that?”
