Baby Got Wha!?
Conor Friedersdorf has a post up at The Atlantic which is well worth the read if only for the WTF value.
Apparently, a bunch of National Review writers got together to do a podcast about the decline of rap music, and hilarity ensued.
Mark Steyn, for example, thinks there’s an absence of human feeling in rap music:
MARK STEYN: I do have a big problem with that, in that I think there’s an absence of human feeling in these songs. It’s not just that they’re explicit. When you talk to social conservatives, they get upset because there’s all these bad words in there. It’s beyond that, actually.
I question whether Mr. Steyn even has the capacity to feel, what with his irrational burning hatred of Big Bird, Sesame Street, and everything they stand for.
