23 Stupid White Man - Bushido

It is about George W. Bush and how he turned being Muslim into something bad in the US. It is the only political song Bushido ever recorded, and it's on his most classic album "Vom Bordstein bis zur Skyline" from 2003 (this was NOT a reason why the album was indexed, only the songs about street violence were relevant). - Martin_Canine

24 Ruth Maude - Xavier Naidoo

Being a conspiracy theorist who thinks all politicians are puppets, he name drops Helmut Schmidt and Angela Merkel. The song doesn't go too far however, he just basically says that he will fight against the "dragons" (in his typically cryptic lyricism).
The title is a homophone with "Rufmord" (defamation). - Martin_Canine
