Baduizms

Dear Hillary: We know one person who neither denounces nor rejects Louis Farrakhan: Erykah Badu. We took a listen to her new album Amerykah last night, and just three songs in, Badu literally sings Farrakhan's praises, saying, "So I salute you, Farrakhan, yes, because you are me." Badu has voiced her support for the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader before — in Israel, no less — but (ahem) Jesus Christ, did she have to do it again in the midst of such a beautiful song?
