Daddy Yankee Endorses John McCain?!
In one of the most head-scratching moves during this wild election campaign season, reggaton pioneer Daddy Yankee on Monday formally endorsed Senator John McCain for President of the United States.
Interestingly enough The Washington Post is implying that Daddy Yankee only endorsed McCain out of spite for the Obama camp, who apparently turned down Yankee's initial attempt at endorsing their candidate because of the singer's questionable lyrics that can some times promote a promiscuous lifestyle and drug use.
Which is all the more reason why Democrats should be attacking McCain about accepting Daddy Yankee's endorsement -- the same way we all know that the Republicans would be killing Barack Obama had he accepted the endorsement.
Going by the current political standards set in place, John McCain's values and integrity should be questioned for his willing association with a recording artist who has made a lucrative living out of exploiting violence, sex and drugs in his music.
Obama would have faced the same type of scrutiny had he not rejected an attempt at an endorsement from Ludacris.
Never mind the fact that Daddy Yankee, a native Puerto Rican, can't cast a ballot in the election because he is from a U.S. territory and not a state.
Video footage of the awkward endorsement follows below.
