207. So...you're saying you weren't going to vote
until you saw Eminem's video and he tapped into some latent reservior of adolescent rage and now you are motivated and you're going to put on your black sweatshirt and pull the hood over your head and go follow Eminem through the rain to the polling booth? Well, I guess that would make you one of the three or four people I said it might influence to vote. So I still think I'm right.

If you like Eminem and think it's cool he's spittin' shit at Bush fine, but I don't think this video matters, that's all I'm saying. It's just corporate exploitation of romanticized adolescent angst. It's silly, and pretending it's not just helps Eminem and the corporations he works for further expand their market share.
