Almost nobody outside of the British press seems to be taking the Stone/Obama story seriously - and even then, the "doing the campaign theme song for" has been nervously marked down to "writing a song for".
Well, we say "almost nobody". Some right-wing bloggers are treating it like it's real.
CrushLiberalism is angry:
Presumably a black presidential candidate should restrict himself to wizened, black, male singers. Some sort of blues, perhaps.
The American Pundit is angry:
Not only is she white, but she's also not black. Thank heavens there are sharp eyed bloggers who spot these details.
But it's not just that she's white - she's not even a native American. Well, not not a Native American... oh, you know what they mean:
Yes. Writing a theme song - that's a good thirty-five quid Obama has outsourced there. Would have outsourced there.
Hilariously, the Pundit even notices that it should treat a Gordon Smart story with caution:
... however, having spotted one major flaw in the story, they still take the rest of it completely at face value.
Surely by now someone should be saying that Ronson/Winehouse have been approached instead?
