Kanye West and Rep. Joe Wilson to Collaborate on Rapper's Next Album

It's been a very busy week for award-winning rapper Kanye West and South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson (R). One suffered a very public case of political Tourette's during a joint session of Congress while the other's bout with verbal diarrhea occurred on-stage Sunday night at the MTV Video Awards. And now both blabbermouths will team on West's new album entitled "Wilson & West: Fuck All-A Y'all." The album includes a song the two are co-writing, "Da Obama Drama," about the Congressman's "You Lie!" outburst during the president's health-care-reform address in the United States House Chamber.

West outdid his uber-narcissistic, foot-in-mouthed-diseased self Sunday by rushing the stage and grabbing the mike from a stunned teen pop sensation Taylor Swift, during her acceptance speech, to imply that fellow nominee Beyonce, who made "one of the best videos of all time," got robbed.

But the rapper, an outspoken black artist and Obama supporter, said he respected what Wilson did even though he doesn't agree with him:

"Yo, crackaz got balls! My boy's just representin' da hometown 'hood is all... for real."

And Wilson, the Confederate flag-supporting former aide to the late South Carolina 'Dixiecrat' (read: racist) segregation-supporting Sen. Strom Thurmond, oddly sang the rapper's praise in return:

"Kanye's a fine boy, and doing a job that's better suited for those people. He's a colored who knows his place....the recording studio."

The bizarre pairing took an even stranger turn when tennis champion Serena Williams warned the two that they better produce a hit with this album or "I swear to God I’m fucking taking this ball and shoving it down your fucking throat."

South Carolina has a long list of dignitaries that includes Lauren Caitlin Upton (Miss Teen USA 2007 pageant contestant), Board of Education Chair, Kristin Maguire, Governor (and avid Appalachian hiker), Mark Sanford and now Joe “the hater not a debater” Wilson or the “screamer not the dreamer” as others have dubbed him. I did enjoy him cut and running through his apology, which only goes to show that he stands for nothing. He is just another good old boy where in the morning these married men preach to you that there should be prayer in our schools and in the evening they are on their cell phones setting up a date with their other women on the side, hypocrisy has been bred in. I am not surprised that he felt compel to yell like he was at some Friday night game. So long Joey, you too will be seeing the unemployment lines.

Andy, you imply there's something wrong with the Confederate flag. What?? Care telling us?

I think there's an album there. Accordingly, I spoke with the agent for Senator Helms' estate; he's willing to license digitized Helms' quotables for purposes of this collaboration (and a 10% royalty fee). Indeed, the agent referenced Congressman Wilson's praise of Mr West as ringing the same sense of warmth and truth enshrined by Senator Jesse Helms:

“To rob the Negro of his reputation of thinking through a problem in his own fashion is about the same as trying to pretend that he doesn't have a natural instinct for rhythm and for singing and dancing.”

Imagine with a doo-wap back-beat, mixed with some "fucking throat," "You Lie" and "best videos of all time" ... yeahhhhhh, baby! You can hear it, right?
