Inspired by the lines of rapper Jay-Z--"If you feelin' like a pimp . . . go and brush your shoulders off. . . . Get that dirt off your shoulder"--Barack Obama, presidential candidate and "self-confessed hip hop head," tried brushing last week's debate with Hillary Clinton off his shoulder. The Washington Post swoons over the "merging" of politics and rap culture here, but if you look here, you'll notice the paper decided to censor all the bad words (one begins with "m" and one begins with "n"). Wonder why?
