Yeah, well, there's not really a music gear angle*, but you might enjoy this Boing Boing post, which links to video of Kanye West appearing on an NBC telethon, ignoring his teleprompter and talking about the shoot-to-kill policy, the war in Iraq, and going shopping rather than making a donation. Finally, as Mike Meyers struggles on, Kanye stares into camera, pauses, and says "George Bush doesn't care about black people." And one thing rappers are very good at is delivering lines. I think it's a awesome TV moment, and Kanye deserves some kind of medal for stating the bleedin' obvious.
*Got one: This kind of makes up for his Louis Vuitton MPC2000XL.
UPDATE: The inevitable (but well done) bootleg/cover is here.
