Jeremiah Wright feels good to be a gangsta

The lyrics from the Geto Boys' smash hit "Damn it feels good to be a gangsta":

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
Gettin voted into the white house
Everything lookin good to the people of the world
But the mafia family is my boss
So every now and then I owe a favor gettin down
Like lettin a big drug shipment through
And send em to the poor community
So we can bust you know who

So voters of the world keep supportin me
And I promise to take you very far
Other leaders better not upset me
Or I'll send a million troops to die at war

To all you republicans, that helped me win
I sincerely like to thank you
Cuz now I got the world swingin from my n***
And damn it feels good to be a gangsta

Compare and contrast: the esteemed Pastor Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama's "spiritual adviser" for 20 years.

The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people...

...We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye...

Looks like Wright has a future in gangsta rap. Who knew?
