A day after the delegates at the Democratic National Convention reintroduced the words God and Jerusalem to the party’s platform, musical guest Mary J. Blige had one more addition: crunk.
Mary J. Blige: "Now that we've established that we're family, let's make it a family affair & get it crunk for Pres Obama for 4 more years!"

First time the word "crunk" is used in a Convention? #DNC2012 #historic

Can someone confirm? Is this the first time "crunk" has been part of a nominating convention? #DNC2012

@Philip_Elliott Well there was the 1892 Democratic Convention when Grover Cleveland said "Get Crunk, Vote for the Democrats!"

The delegates proceeded to dance, but did they really get it crunk? What is crunk? Professor?
One theory of its etymology is that "crunk" is a portmanteau of "chronic" (as in marijuana) and "drunk."

Mary J. Bilge. says "Let's get it crunk for Obama." "Crunk" is slang for getting high and drunk. Way to go, #DNC2012.
