Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee endorsed McCain at Central High School in Phoenix, AZ earlier today. Guess who the kids were more excited to see: the dude who collaborated with Lil Jon or the man known as Ol' John. After Yankee's awkward campaign appearance, and a lyrical analysis, we should have known Daddy Yankee was a Republican all along.
How deep are Daddy's rightest roots? Well, his biggest hit "Gasolina" is all about doing anything for oil, no matter how poorly planned, risky and stupid.

Para que sientas mi nivel de testosterona
Píllala contra el muro!

Me and you holding it down, its all real
Or maybe all these songs are about fucking and thug love. Who knows? Just remember this election day, while you're at your mysterious touch pad station, remember who Daddy Yankee would vote for. Then think about how stupid it would be to follow the advice of a reggaeton star on important political matters.
