Clay Hosts Fundraiser @ Black Eyed Peas Concert: Did They Perform “Let’s Get Retarded?”

February 25th, 2010 by mopns · No Comments

According to The Hill newspaper’s ‘Washington Scene’ section, St. Louis Congressman Lacy Clay was in attendance Tuesday night at the Black Eyed Peas concert in Washington D.C. Not only was Clay grooving to the mega group’s many hits, (we wonder if they performed their 2004 hit “Let’s Get retarded” – lyrics below) the in the pocket of the ‘Rent to Own’ industry Congressman was hosting a fundraiser for himself high above the common people in a luxury suite.

Also, former DNC chairman Terry McCauliffe was in attendance. Political junkees will remember that McCauliffe was the chair when the Black Eyed peas performed at the Democrats 2004 convention. That’s also when the lyrics of their song ‘Let’s get retarded’ were changed to ‘Let’s get it started.”

Let’s Get Retarded, in here

[Chorus:]

Everybody, everybody, let’s get into it.
Get stupid.

Get retarded, get retarded, get retarded.
Let’s get retarded (ha), let’s get retarded in here. Let’s get retarded (ha), let’s get retarded in here.

Let’s get retarded (ha), let’s get retarded in here. Let’s get retarded (ha), let’s get retarded in here.
Yeah.

    As if we didn’t have enough misuse of the word “retarded.”
