Daddy Yankee Endorses McCain

PHOENIX, Ariz. — At a “press conference” at Central High School in downtown Phoenix this morning, Sen. John McCain received the much-sought after endorsement of Daddy Yankee, the prominent Puerto Rican Reggaeton artist.

Sen. John McCain and Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee

Here’s what Mr. Yankee (born Ramon Ayala) had to say:

McCain praised Yankee as a “great American success story.”

I think it also might be of interest to know that Ramon came from a very poor family. He lived in a part of Puerto Rico where a lot of people make the wrong choices. He made the right choices. By the way, he spent a lot of time boxing. Puerto Rico has produced some of the great boxers in history. Of course, you all know better than I do about his Latin Grammy Award-winning songs and the great crowds he draws to his concerts.

Here’s the video for one of Daddy Yankee’s hottest jams, “Gasolina.”[

While this event was clearly a naked effort to court the Latino vote, I’m not sure if this is the “family values” sort of image that McCain will want to project to win over the GOP’s conservative base. Contrary to what Sen. McCain might like to believe, the song is not a call for the United States to lift the federal moratorium on offshore drilling. Here’s an excerpt from the English translation. You decide for yourself what Gasolina refers to:

Up mambo so my babes turn on the engines

Be them ready to catch what’s coming, Hard!

Honey I now you’re not gonna go away from me

What I like is that you like to be taken away (hard!)

Every weekend she goes out to have fun (hard!)

My babe doesn’t stop from hanging out because

She likes gasoline (give me more gasoline!)

How she adores gasoline! (give me more gasoline)

McCain and Yankee met earlier in the month at McCain’s campaign headquarters in Arlington, Va. Fox News reported at the time that the meeting took place at the McCain campaign’s request.

It is also worth noting that, despite the event being billed as a “press conference,” neither the media nor the students were allowed to ask any questions. Also, it seems quite ironic that the McCain campaign openly mocks Sen. Barack Obama for his celebrity status — as well as his connections to other celebrities — yet McCain strategically courts celebrities who could bolster his standing with key demographics.

One thing is certain, The Daily Show is going to have a field day with this.
