Heh. It’s not that we want to mock Austan Goolsbee. It’s just that he makes it so easy.

The clueless former chairman of President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisors decided it would be a fantastic idea to slam Paul Ryan for campaigning with Kid Rock. He’s going to need a longer strand of pearls if he plans on clutching them that tightly over the women in Kid Rock videos.

Luckily, Twitter users are givers. They helpfully pointed out that Goolsbee’s Hip-Hop President spends an awful lot of time hanging with foul-mouthed rapper Jay-Z, whose songs include sexually explicit lyrics and references to drugs and violence.

But pay no attention to the Jay-Z behind Obama’s curtain. Kid Rock and beer! Heaven forfend!
