POLITICS: Rapping Against Wellstone

Here's a bizarre story from the American Prospect about Citizens Opposed to Racism and Discrimination (CORAD), a conservative group in Minnesota that's running ads against Paul Wellstone and put out a rap CD (!) full of what can only be described as right-wing propaganda in an effort to break the Democrats' hammerlock on African-American voters in the Twin Cities. TAP's problem is that it can't seem to decide whether or not CORAD is actually accomplishing enough to be newsworthy.
