No! That would have been fun to see though. They are "bestest" of friends and all......

Very true, I was simply relaying what I had heard in regards to the reason behind Kanye's actions last night. The bigger picture is why we as Americans care more about stuff like the MTV Awards, than the stuff that really matters to us on a daily level.

Only racist thugs do stuff like this. People with no class! Kanye West is a prime example of that kind of people.
Too bad some people support his actions. But I'm not supprised....

Kanye is a scumbag. He can auto-tune/filter his voice for his music but he can't filter his outbursts. Again, he's a scumbag. Always has been, always will be.

and people he's not a thug. his mom was a phd professor. he grew up in suburban middleclass chicago.

Only white racists use code words to like "thug" to describe basically every black male between the ages of 15-40. If you think Kanye is a thug, then Im sure you would think my gay hairstylist cousin is a thug also, as they look, act and dress almost exactly alike

The proof is in the pudding, Kanye's outburst has received more internet hits and hate on blogs and message boards like this in less than one day than the Mr. Wilson's outburst has in almost a week.

You can use all the eye rolling smilies you like, but your credibility takes a hit when you don't know the difference between a Senator and a Representative.

I think the West story will die very quickly, because it has limited context. West's manager can spin it any way he likes, but I doubt that most people will buy into the idea that Kanye's behavior was politically motivated. They'll ultimately chalk it up to his apparently normal antics.

The Wilson incident is part of a much larger story about the future of U.S. health care, and as such will have more longevity.

Maybe because things Obama have been in the media basically every day since the election campaign, maybe people are just a bit tired of Obama news stories unless they really affect them.

Southpark was right, Kanye West is a Gay Fish. He loves his fish sticks.

Well then you would think his mom would of taught him how to speak, he sounds like a moron when he opens his mouth, to me he's a low class piece of ****. I don't care what his mother did for a living.
