Daddy Yankee to Moderate PR Gov. Debate

Not happy with the performance of Jim Lehrer, Gwen Ifill, or Tom Brokaw? Well, it could've been worse: Daddy Yankee will be one of three moderators of the Puerto Rico gubenatorial debate, this coming Tuesday.

Yes, really.

The 31 year-old reggaeton star--whose real name is Ramon Ayala--is being seen as bait to lure younger voters into the political process. Daddy Yankee has stated that despite having recently endorsed Sen. John McCain for president, he is not partial to any of the four candidates participating in the debate he'll help moderate, including the incumbent Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila.

[Kudos to Carolina Gonzalez for the heads up.]
