Even Chamillionaire Approved of Moderator Martha Raddatz in the VP Debate

Six years after “Ridin’,” would you imagine that the world is talking about Chamillionaire again, outside the context of one-hit wonders?
At Thursday night’s Vice Presidential debate, moderator Martha Raddatz warned the audience to silence their cell phones, telling a story of how she had once interrupted a White House press briefing with an impromptu Chamillionaire ringtone:
As Raddatz soon charmed the nation with her adept handling of both vice-presidential candidates, the Chamillionaire story added to her viral legend. “All that, and she likes hip-hop, too!”
And then this happened:
Can’t lie. That just made my night. Appreciate it. @martharaddatz Keep it gangsta.

We knew Chamillionaire followed politics, but this is still too awesome. Of course, now that he’s politically relevant again, will our politicians finally get serious about the plague of police officers hating, patrolling, and trying to catch our rappers riding dirty?
