Christine Radogno Video: Quotes Wu-Tang Clan in Illinois Senate
Christine Radogno Quoted The Wu-Tang Clan and The Chappelle Show On the Floor of the Illinois State Senate on May 18, 2011. Here is the Illinois Senate Wu-Tang Video. Dollar Dollar Bill, Y'All!
Some Republicans like Sarah Palin have problems with rapper Common. At least Republican has embraced hip-hop. Christine Radogno quoted the Wu-Tang Clan on the floor of the Illinois State Senate on May 18, 2011.
Radogno asked to make a "personal point of privilege" where she talked about the fact that Wu-Tang member Raekwon recently performed in Illinois. She claimed to have gotten some financial advice from Raekwon, then proceeded to quote lyrics from the Wu-Tang Clan classic 'C.R.E.A.M." in response to the state's budget crisis.
Christina Radogno said: "Cash rules everything around us. C.R.E.A.M, get the money. Dollar Dollar Bill y'all!"
In reality, Radogno wasn't just quoting the Wu-Tang clan, but a skit from the Chappelle Show. The politician quoted not just the lyrics to C.R.E.A.M. but from a Chappelle skit entitled Wu-Tang Financial, where members of the rap group dole out financial advice.
Radogno will never be mistaken for the Old Dirty Bastard, but we like her style. We wish she had gone further, grabbed the mic and shouted: "Illinois State Republicans ain't nothin' to f--k wit!" then told governor Pat Quinn to "Protect Ya Neck."
