You've gotta love US politics, if for no other reason that the type of stunts they go for would be hilarious if Irish politicians gave them a go.
Can you imagine a rap about Enda Kenny or Gerry Adams? The closest we ever got was The Morrisseys 1981 classic, Arise And Follow, about 'oul CJ Haughey.
Ben Carson, who believes that the Egyptian pyramids were used as grain stores and not for burial by the pharaohs, has released a rap-inspired advert for US radio stations and it's got the Internet talking.
Have a listen.
Yeah. There's no word yet on who's behind the rap, but we're guessing they've gone into hiding because basically nobody likes it. At all.

Wow. In fairness, this might have worked just as well.
