Obama has 99 problems (but a bitch ain't one)

There's a lively thread going over at Ace of Spades HQ in which Ace invited PUMAs deeply opposed to Barack Obama to offer up suggestions on how to fight the monster and get more Dems into the McCain camp. I had no idea how deep the PUMAs' resentment towards Obama went. I knew much of it came from the perceived sexism of Obama's campaign, but I hadn't heard about this particular bit:
As Obama and his wife, Michelle, strolled triumphantly into his victory party in Des Moines, Iowa, on Jan. 3, Jay-Z's "99 Problems" was blaring. In it, Jay raps, "I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one."

Some listeners took it as a not-so-sly reference to Hillary.
Uh, yeah...duh. Ace has the vid posted, so I'm not going to put that crap up here. Hey, this is a clean fucking blog, you know?

Anyway, can you freakin' imagine the hue and cry if McCain pulled something similar? But, no...while the Obamatons mindlessly chant the mantra that McCain is against equal pay for women (there's even an Obama TV ad saying as much), Obama's campaign pays their female employees 84 cents to every dollar a man makes, while McCain's female employees are getting $1.04 for every dollar a male campaign employee makes.

YouTube has taken that video down. There's been a pattern of that - videos linked to righty blogs that make Obama look bad are pulled
