Your Obama Apologist of the Day: Singer Janelle Monae

When then-Sen. Barack Obama promised Hope and Change, what he really meant was, “gimme eight full years” for the full array of said hope and change.

So thinks Janelle Monae, the young soul singer gearing up for her first Obama fundraiser.


Monae, whose hits include, “Tightrope” and “Cold War,” is all too eager to line the coffers of the Obama war chest. After all, who can get anything done in a mere four years?

Monae will perform at a fundraiser for the president’s re-election in the Windy City on Wednesday. Explaining her support of Obama on her Facebook page, Monae wrote: “President Obama is not finished. Let. the. man. finish.”
