If Mitt Romney ever has a falling out with conservative buddy Bob Ritchie (aka Kid Rock) and therefore decides to replace Ritchie’s “Born Free” with another official 2012 campaign theme song might I suggest “Mo Money, Mo Problems?”
It certainly seems to fit, and frankly it is fast becoming not just an appropriate theme song for the Romney campaign but for all members of the much-maligned 1 percent, including the man responsible for giving us “Mo Money, Mo Problems” in the first place, hip-hop uber-mogul P. Diddy.
For the last couple of weeks Diddy, known for his ostentatious love of bling, brushes with the law, not to mention his ever-changing monikers, faced criticism for an unusual reason: he apparently raised a great kid. His son Justin not only graduated from a prestigious high school, but was awarded a full scholarship to UCLA. That fact, that the son of one of the wealthiest African-Americans in the country will be attending school on a full scholarship, has rankled many, so much so that the school felt the need to release a statement on the matter.
