"What the **** is a Barack?!"

Don't know why, but my grandmother's favorite exclamation, when surprised or shocked, was "Good Gowdy!"

In an interview with XXL Magazine, hip-hop artist DMX was asked about the 2008 presidential race. Here's the questioning (bold) and answering (italicized ), and all I can say is ... GOOD GOWDY!

I'm not going to apologize for any of DMX's profanity or racial epithetery, mainly 'cause I'm not the one who's actively trying to offend Jesse Jackson's sensibilities.

Now, tell me this ain't funny:

Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.

You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!

Barack Obama, yeah.

What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
I ain’t really paying much attention.

I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black ...
Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, 'Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit' [laughs] 'That ain’t your fuckin’ name.' Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?

DMX can't vote? To borrow a line from C3PO in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, "Thank the Maker!"
