Too bad Kanye's not a preacher. America could use some non-word-mincing prophetic voices for a change.
It so cool how Kanye gets to say weird stuff, ask for an apology on a talk show (Jay Leno), and it will have NO affect on his record sales or public image. He's creating a brand by saying unpredictable things that will make him even more money in the end.
Look at how much free press he's getting because of this. It's a brilliant branding strategy.
