Talk about politically incorrect.

This week's campaign propaganda has already seen John McCain's ode to Barack Obama, Britney and Paris. Now it's been raised a Ludacris.

Team Obama is blasting a well-meaning though wholly inappropriate diss track from the rapper targeting Obama's opponents, declaring the cut "outrageously offensive."

"Ludacris is a talented individual, but he should be ashamed of these lyrics," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said.

"As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn't want his daughters or any children exposed to."

All qualities Luda's tune has in spades.

In the track, alternately called "Politics (Obama Is Here)" or "Politics As Usual," the rapper proves himself an equal-opportunity offender, going after Clinton, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, President Bush and, of course, McCain.

After suggesting himself as a viable vice presidential candidate, Ludacris raps, "Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant," and, later, "Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what? If you said it then you meant it how you want it have a gut."

McCain and Bush arguably get the worst of his rhyming ire: "McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed...Yeah, I said it, 'cause Bush is mentally handicapped...You the worst of all 43 presidents."

Earlier this year, Obama told Rolling Stone he was a fan of the rapper, whose real name is Christopher Bridges, and thought him to be an impressive businessman.

On that opinion, we're guessing, Obama's for change.
