Farouk, Farouk, Farouk is on fire


He don't need no water, just your vote in the Democratic primary. I had every intention of making fun of J. Xavier's hip-hop tribute detailing Farouk Shami's policies â??officially released by his campaign, mind you â?? but after listening to it I'd rather wipe a booger on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

We don't care who you vote for, but we strongly endorse this song. Any candidate willing to embrace Auto Tune technology's got our â?? um â?? attention I guess is the right word for it.

Official press release reprinted below. Somebody record a Rick Perry endorsing hip-hop song, stat.

In a last minute push to win supporters and motivate Texans to go to the polls tomorrow, Farouk Shami has publically released the song "Farouk" from prominent hip hop artist J. Xavier. The song outlines Farouk's new solutions for Texas, including creating jobs and reforming the education system so it looks out for all Texas children.

"I thank J. Xavier for his support and lending his amazing talents to our campaign," said Farouk Shami.
