NEW YORK -- Hip-hop mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs is following the lead of President Bush and Sen. John Kerry by taking his get-out-the-vote campaign to the swing states.
"If you are going to play the game, you need to play it all the way," Combs said in a telephone interview Saturday. "And if you talking about flexing your power, and you ain't flexing in the swing states, then you ain't flexing your power."
Combs' Citizen Change initiative will launch a three-day get-out-the-vote drive starting Tuesday in Milwaukee and Detroit, followed by rallies in Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Miami. Combs said he will be joined by other celebrities, including actor Leonardo DiCaprio and singer Mary J. Blige.
P. Diddy started his nonprofit, nonpartisan initiative earlier this year, saying he wanted to use unconventional means to register thousands of young, minority and urban voters he says are overlooked by politicians.

P Diddy= Attention Whore
Hey P-Jerk: Be a man and spend a few months in Iraq being something besides a publicity hound
It don't mean Piddly Diddy.
nonprofit, nonpartisan initiative
Bullshi$. He supports kerry along with leonardo. what a scam.
When will this guy go away??? I am so done with him. what does he do? I agree with the above post, he's a fame whore. But why does he keep getting attention? Who is he sleeping with to get this kind of coverage all the time?
In the entire history of American politcs - no, the entire history of Western Civilization - certainly there have never been more profound words than these from P Diddy. We are blessed that he has taken up the important caust of "getting out the vote." The vote is what it's all about, and we've got to get that out.
Vote or Die!
[cough, gag, ugh, /s]
If the fraud gets too out of hand it could end up being "vote and die" or as many democrats do, "die and then vote".
So J Lonely is a Kerry supporter huh...who'da thunk it?
If Sean's doing it, shouldn't it be "Vote Or I'll Shoot Your A**?"
caust = cause you moron. Learn how to type. I'm getting about sick of seeing your posts. Wit and intelligence completely destroyed by fat fingers. Go to bed.
As a Democrap, I wonder if he's for gun control...oh wait nevermind....Jlo dumped him for trying to pay his driver to take the gun after firing shots in a nightclub.
A thug leading the crusade to unseat president Bush. I feel like I'm living in the twilight zone
fyi: p-diddy contributed to Sharpton for the 2004 Primaries.!
One of the late night talk shows had the two guys that did the "Team America" puppet movie on. Towards the end of the interview the host(??) gave them both a "Vote or Die" t-shirt. These two guys went after it like sharks to chum. They reminded people that not voting is OK, if you don't know the issues, don't vote. If you are going to vote, find out the issues and educate yourself about them. It was very impressive. Think we have a pair of closet republicans on our hands.
The only people who could possibly give a good crap about P Diddy are blacks and they are already voting for Kerry
Enjoying our adult beverages, are we?
Trey and Matt are not closet Republicans. They won some big lib award a couple of years ago because they do a cartoon that has 8-year-olds cussing. They got up to accept the award and said, essentially if not exactly: "Thanks, but we're Republicans." South Park and Team America are very pro-America, pro-Republican, pro-individual liberty. But you've got to be able to get past the cussing and the violence.
It's his buddies at MTV, a propaganda outlet owned by Viacom.
He even had his own show, kind of a Real World meets American Idol thing....
Guiness, and unfortunately I've just opened the first one. :-(
We live in a country when more people who vote that know nothing about the issues...the better the chance a guy like sKerry gets elected....what does that say?
Fight fo ya lives ya'll!
Didn't know that, thanks. Even 1/2 asleep I can tell a conservative :)
Guiness = Guinness; that's what I'm talking about. Can't type to save my life tonight.
My wife and I love South Park. We went to see Team America last weekend, and I wish there was some way I could clean up the final monologue and post it here, but the language is too hard. There's always a pretty good conservative message buried in South Park, but you have to look to find it. The libs see a lot of cussing and "pushing the envelope" so often they think it's a great liberal show, but that's just cause libs are stoopid.
Don't have cable, so I've never seen it. I may break a rule and go see this movie sans girlfriend.
As are all celebrities. What they have to say means nothing to me and I wish their political opinions would stop getting news coverage.
The movie is really funny. You don't have to be a SP fan to get the movie, but keep in mind during the puppet sex and vomit scene that their trademark is taking gags over the top.
The whole "register to vote" scam by all the "celebrities" is specious and phony. What it means is register if you hate Bush and will vote for Kerry. Wolves in sheeps clothing.
Shouldn't this be "Be ready to die if you vote for Kerry who is unable, undesireous and unwilling to defend American from Islamofascists nuclear weapons in NYC and Washington DC?"
Punk Diddy - "we gotta get Bush out of office" & "go out and vote for change" but Vote or Die is nonpartisan
In ancient Rome actors /entertainers were looked upon as being lower than whores. You do a great injustice to whores by your remarks.;o)
Pretty tough on yourself there SY
