This election has one more gift for the Internet before it wraps up tonight: Rush Limbaugh reciting the lyrics to Jay-Z's 99 Problems. As you may have heard, the rapper performed that song at an Obama rally yesterday with a Mitt-themed twist. Rush, it seems, was not amused.
Here's the clip from today's show (pulled by BuzzFeed). The lyrics come shortly before the two-minute mark. We admit that Rush's quasi-rapping failed to fully live up to what we were imagining when we were first tipped off to the spoken-word recital by Twitter. Then again, not much would have.
And the original remix:
