Over the past few weeks, we’ve been listening to conservative pundits predicting that the multitude of significant government scandals catching momentum in some quarters of the media will ultimately bring down the Obama administration.

I’m not going to waste any time critiquing the lyrics of “Accidental Racist”, the controversial new song performed by singers Brad Paisley and LL Cool J.
