Ron Paul has pulled the plug on his primary effort but that doesn't mean he's ghost. His Revolution delegation, which he hopes will be the second largest behind frontrunner Mitt Romney, plans to make LOTS of noise at the Republican National Convention. GOP dramz is gonna go down! Guess who else always makes a statement -- fashion or otherwise -- when they show up at a big event?! Weezy F baby!
Get ready for another match-up of “Who Said it: Rapper or Republican?” featuring flamboyant rapper/skater Lil Wayne and the GOP’s Betty White, Ron Paul. Think it’ll be easy-Weezy to decipher the musings of a 29-year-old Louisiana lyric slinger from a 76-year-old libertarian politician? Not so fast, boo. These two headline-grabbin’ dudes have more in common that you might think!
For example, they’re both prolific father figures -- Lil Wayne has 4 kids and Ron Paul has 5. In fact, one of the former Texas Congressman’s sons, Rand Paul, is followin’ in his pop’s politico footsteps as a junior Senator in Kentucky -- perhaps he was inspired by the Birdman and Wanye track “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy” from Like Father, Like Son?!
Barack Obama has namedropped both Lil Wayne and Grandpa Ron plenty of times. And these two have similar track records of blasting their opinions about controversial topics like drugs, race relations, and contraception -- even if it’s gonna offend or upset the public. Speaking of the adoring masses, both Lil Dub and Big Papa Paul have a serious youth fan army who backs their every move. See, it ain’t such a cinch, huh? So get ready to show us how to quote and quiz your knowledge of MC or DC below!
