It's like a fuckin' army marching in back of me


The rumors that Eminem's new album will be his most overtly political appear to be true. Silly Salon says, "With his history of homophobia and his long-running beef with MoveOn supporter Moby, Eminem is an even less likely lefty hero than Howard Stern." Radosh.net readers know better.

I'm not sure the Mosh video is quite the powerful statement that the left wants it to be, though. I mean, it's blunt, to be sure (and nicely animated), but not all that persuasive if you're an undecided slacker sitting at home watching MTV. Still, I would have liked to have seen this out three weeks ago. If nothing else, won't it be weird if this is on the air a month from now, with Eminem all, "I'm the new Che. We're gonna destroy Bush," if, in fact, Bush has won the election. Won't it make Em look just a little bit less powerful than he wants to appear?

I definitely think Just Lose It is the more subversive song.
