I’m willing to bet that Mitt Romney has never rocked out to “I’m In Miami Bitch.” Sample lyric: “Drink all day/Play all night/Let’s get it popping/I’m in Miami, bitch. . . . It’s morning time/And the girls still there/They lying naked/With some asses in the air.”
But Mitt Romney is now familiar with LMFAO, the rap duo (RedFoo and Sky Blu) who wrote the song. After all, it was one of the members of LMFAO who allegedly tried to hit Romney after boarding a flight from Vancouver. Romney spokesman Eric Ferhnstrom described Romney as an innocent bystander in the event. After a “passenger became physically violent,” Ferhnstrom said, “Gov. Romney did not retaliate but instead let the airline crew respond to the incident.”
Sky Blu, who happens to be the nephew of Democratic fundraiser and Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, said Romney shouted at him disrespectfully and then grabbed his shoulder. Blu said he responded to Romney by knocking the hand off him, which Romney apparently interpreted as a swing. “I’m not a salmon going upstream. You are not going to grip me up.” Blu’s rather hilarious video explanation of his encounter with Romney, courtesy of TMZ, follows after the jump.
By the way, LMFAO is an acronym, for a phrase I am not able to print in full on Swampland. The safe-for-Youtube video for “I’m In Miami Bitch” is just barely acceptable for Swampland–as a link, but not an embed.
I’m willing to bet that Romney does not make it a 2012 campaign theme.
