176. INTENSE !!!
I'm with the majority here. I'm 45 yr old white guy with kids in their 20s. I've never been a fan of wrap (sic) much less eminem. Offensive is the word I'd use to describe most of it but I sent these links to my kids.

That being said, I had chills watching this video. This is powerful stuff and needs to be seen by young people especially.

Let's not forget, this election will be all about turnout!!! This video speaks to key demographics - young people, minorities, and mothers (women) who need to turn out big for Kerry. I say play it early and often.

This is something we had "back in the day" as the kids say. It's an anthem!!!

I believe the jury is still out on whether eminem will mature into the kind of cultural icon Dylan was. He's not there yet but this is a good step in that direction - especially the ending that suggests voting to make a difference. He could still drop the ball in the long run.

Kerry-on our wayward sons.
