Eminem's lyrics probed by Secret Service

Daniel Radosh

Late last year I wrote an appreciation of Eminem's radical politics, wondering what the guy had to do to get noticed for incendiary raps something other than homosexuals and Vicodin. Now we know. The Secret Service ultimately decided not to launch a formal investigation into Em's "I'd rather see the president dead" track, which, I note, is called "We As Americans." The man is redefining patriotism harder than Wes Clark. If we're lucky, he'll convince every one of his fans to vote against Bush. Either that or to spit in your onion rings.
