(Newser) – P Diddy—“government name" Sean Combs—has a heart-to-heart with John McCain on a dizzying YouTube video complaining that the Arizona senator's choice of running mate is “not respectful to our diverse lives.” Sporting tinted shades, a white tee and serious bling, Diddy, “aka Ciroc Obama,” spins in circles delivering a profanity-ridden solo. His beef? That Alaska probably has no black people.

"I love you, I want you to live 'til you're 110," Diddy says in the video that's logged more than half a million viewers, "but things happen." He worries that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin won't get black or youth policy. Give her a cabinet post instead, he suggests, and let Michelle Obama be VP.
