Shalom, Obama, baby

Given all the creepy smears being circulated within the Jewish community accusing Barak Obama of everything from having been trained in a madrassah to taking his orders from Louis Farrakhan (see our shows on January 20 and March 2), it's lovely to see Latino Jewish musicians the Hip Hop Hoodios come out with their kitschy and hilarious intervention, "Shalom Obama," which you can give a listen at the group's MySpace page.

I swear, I'm not just promoting this because Hoodios co-founder Abe Velez is a Beyond the Pale contributor.
