Wyclef Jean Protests His Disqualification From Haitian Presidency With Song

Wyclef Jean will not go away, in terms of his desire to run for President of his native Haiti. Dude needs to give shit up and move on. What's interesting is that ‘Clef performs the song in Creole; his cousin and Fugee bandmate Pras told New York magazine that Jean is not fluent enough in Creole to allow him to run Haiti successfully. Perhaps this is Jean's sonic response to his cousin's assessment of his skills and abilities?
"His Creole is similar to Jackie Chan's English — no disrespect to Jackie Chan," Pras stated. "How are you gonna be an effective leader, how are you gonna be inspiring the youth, if you're telling them to forget French, forget Creole, speak English? That's in their blood, that's 200 years of culture. It'd be like Obama coming in and telling people to speak Cantonese."
Pras does have a point there, folks.
Will Wyclef ever give up his bid? Does anyone out there think he would be a good President of Haiti? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone? Crickets...
