The Kanye Jackass Hack of the White House Website, With a Nice New Blogpost About The First Lady's Farmers Market Visit

From the Six Degrees of Obama Foodorama playbook...
The evil geniuses at
Kanyelicious have semi-hacked the website, in response to President Obama referring to Kanye West as a "jackass" earlier this week. The comment was supposed to be off the record, and was made in the moments before an interview with CNBC was about to start, but was caught on tape. ABC News reporter Terry Moran immediately Tweeted the President's comment to the universe, then deleted the Tweet, but it was too late.

The President was giving an opinion on Kanye jumping onstage at the Video Music Awards to announce that Beyonce should've gotten the award that had just been given to Taylor Swift (in photo). The site is still searchable with the Kanye overlay, and it's a little worrisome in terms of national cyber security, but now that there's a new blogpost about First Lady Michelle Obama's visit to the White House Farmers Market on Thursday, it had to be archived. The exchange between the CNBC reporter and President Obama about Kanye's behavior reff'd the President's recent interruption by jackass Rep. Joe Wilson:

CNBC: Were your girls as hacked off as mine were that Kanye gave Taylor Swift the Joe Wilson treatment?

President Obama: I thought that was really inappropriate. You know it was like she's getting an award -- why are you butting in? I, I hear you -- I agree with you...What's he doing up there? He's a jackass. (Laughter)

A Kanye/Joe Wilson mash-up of the President's address before Congress was immediately posted on Youtube, and has gotten more than 3 million views:

*Beyonce famously sang 'At Last' for President Obama and Mrs. Obama at the Inauguration, and Mrs. Obama took Malia and Sasha to see Beyonce play here in Washington, in August. Beyonce's website is here. Naturally, TMZ has an audio version of the President's comment here. Kanye apologizes here. Hmm, Ob Fo is just hoping that all parties involved Know Their Farmers.
