Just Another Girl On The IRT

Freestyle musings from a pseudo-intellectual hellcat in high heels with Huxtable aspirations in a ghetto fab world. Proudly sponsored by bouts of bitchy mood swings, one too many swigs of Turning Leaf, the letters F & U and the madness that is the Rotten Apple.

Lift every voice and sing

Talk about campaigning in poetry. While Britney Spears is bouncing around a padded room in the latest chapter of her ongoing march to Crazytown, it's almost heartwarming to see bleeding-heart camera hogs channeling their star power for a common purpose. Inspired by Barack Obama's New Hampshire concession speech, an all-star lineup headlined by Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am have joined together in a 4-minute music video set to those very words.
  • It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.
    Yes, we can.
  • It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom through the darkest of nights.
    Yes, we can.
  • It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.
    Yes, we can.
  • It was the call of workers who organized, women who reached for the ballot, a president who chose the moon as our new frontier, and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the promised land.
I don't even care that the relentless beauty shots of Scarlett Johansson reek of Velveeta because I don't have an ice box where my heart used to be just yet. Yes we can.
