My favorite-ever media moment.

This has got to be one of my favorite-ever media moments of all time—when Kanye West said the now-infamous words, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

In an interview with Matt Lauer yesterday, former president George Bush said that Kanye calling him a racist was the worst moment of his presidency.

Oh really? Not the ten-year war he got the country inextricably embroiled in or the fact that New Orleans was basically wiped off the map. The worst moment of his presidency was when a rapper said something mean about him?

Not everything is clearer in retrospect.
