So... answer to the "which music and/or black political figure will be yanking Kanye's ass out of the fire" turns out to be "Jay-Z... kinda." Mr. Z and Kanye kept their pre-scheduled appointment on the Leno show debut, where Leno asked "the questions" and West reacted like six year-old who'd just been caught hiding cauliflour under his napkin. He stressed "taking time off," which means some upper-crust rehab facility already has a bed made for him.
Amazingly, I was RIGHT that someone was going to ask Obama about this but WRONG that it'd be a young turk... it was freaking TERRY MORAN, who "tweeted" The President's response (in which he called Kanye a "jackass") only to hurriedly delete it once informed that was supposed to be off the record. At least, so-reports NEWSWEEK: http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/thegaggle/archive/2009/09/15/obama-says-kanye-west-acted-like-jackass-at-the-vmas.aspx
