3. I don't get the outrage over PSY

It's certainly not hte first pop, rock, or rap song to have ridiculously stupid and high shock value lyrics to sell records and/or make a political point.

I don't know the reason for the apology. You might be right, or he might have meant for the lyrics to be a crazy exaggeration to make a political point, and hadn't thought he'd become so internationally famous where people would look into his past and take it literally, and where it would become an issue as it has.

But I do agree that it will cause Obama problems if he goes. Republicans keep beating this "Obama hates America" drum, and it plays into that. OTOH, he won't be up for re-election again, so I don't know how much damage it can do.
