Watch CNN's Jeanne Moos report on the latest online political video making waves.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - CNN's Jeanne Moos reports on a new online music video spoofing a spoof - it's 'Obama Girl' vs. 'Hott 4 Hill'.
hmmm this is getting interesting. It's now all about who has the most money to spend on marketing and who has the best spin doctors. I would hope Americans would be able to see the real issues through all of this but after suffering through 2 terms of dubya it’s apparent they can’t.
so proud to be poster child of democrazy...why do those iraqis resist this?!?!?!
Marc, youve been agaisnt this war since the start? Awesome to hear. Ron Paul was against it from the start and voted against it from the start. Hillary was not against it from the start and voted for it. Ron Paul has promised to bring the troops home right now if elected and has a 20 year record of voting what he says.
First of all, Woody is a sheeple. Secondly, citing the four horseman only solidifies J's credibility by proving an open mind, acceptance, and education among a variety of subjects. Now...
While no one should be surprised that, yes, presidential elections have sunk to this level, we should also look at this funny video in what is at least a positive direction concerning the public opinion, understanding, and acceptance of homosexuality. Besides, what else can we expect from a society who's mantra for the past century has been buy, buy, buy? (note yesterday's story on shopping addictions). To compete in this free and open market, ads need to be flashy, fast, exciting. And, I don't know about anyone else, but I happen to find sex rather arousing. It's also distracting, and when you combine the two, you get detachment (think: gimme, gimme, i want).
So as a result of the current generation's impeccable talents in product development and marketing, we as a society have produced uninvolved, uninterested youth who have come to see two things: consumers and raw material-sometimes precious and non-renewable-or product. Sometimes people fall into both categories, certainly the environment is subject, and it is all relevant to profit, God Money. Everywhere, people speak of and like to believe-or have faith-in things like an end to racism, human deprivation and abuse, and a solution to saving our only home; which we've all but ruined. Yet we do nothing but reinforce this so-far inevitable death spiral of th human race by consuming, consuming, consuming! Betsy Douglas, GA is right: crap is being forced upon us, and you can't just not watch it; nor should you have to. FIX THIS by creating a system that allows each household to select individual channels @ a pre-determined rate. Stop wasting money on crazy pretend wars (anybody know where I can get some pot?) and start investing it into our future. Better schools, higher teacher salary-we need to start paying people what they are worth-lower sports salaries, private sector space research and technology; as well as college incentives...or how about a free education?? We need to start teaching history with just a tiny bit more truth to it, because American Pride isn't all that much to be proud of. And on top of that all, we absolutely need to be aggressively pursuing alternative energies; ones that are absolutely alternative, not just another way of continuing to suck the earth dry of its oil.
All of these things should be done, but it would only be a start. But how do we do all that? Well, in my opinion, it is impossible unless it becomes more profitable to nourish our planet that it is now to destroy it. Spread wealth and wealth will abound...we were put here to take care of the only place that will ever really be Home.
CNN should be ashamed for promoting this as "political" news. This crap only distracts the sleeping masses from the real issues. We must begin taking politics and government seriously people. Our freedom depends on it.
also, i would like to meet John Stewart...just throwin' that out there.
This is just another reason for me not to vote for Obama or Clinton. I mean Clinton, she can't even stand up to her husband. How would she stand up to terrorist? They'll probably vote her in themselves.
Good job deleting my post CNN. Ron Paul has always been against the war Hillary has not.
That's great! More power to the Obama Girl!
I laughed so hard that there were tears running down my face, this just totally tickled me. I have needed a good laugh and boy oh boy, did I get one when watching this on CNN!! I can't wait to show it to my daughter!!!
I hope this isn't the future of political opinion.. but I also secretly hope it is. So entertaining!
Found another good article on it:
I don't have a problem with the Videos. People like having fun, and with so much stress in todays' world why not? Light comedy doesn't hurt...
What I do find interesting? but at the same time perplexing, are the comments here flogging Hillary for the Video!
Hillary didn't make the Video ... Flogg the Messanger.
I believe the Hillary and Obama videos are obviously works of the devil. The idea of engaging young people in the process by using their own medium is unfair to the Old White Guys running against them.
On behalf of millions of people: when do we get to see a scantily clad male in a campaign video (spoof or not)? Straight men don't even make up half of the population 😉
Has political discourse in this nation descended this far? Why do people watch this junk?
I think you people who are so outraged by this video, and think people need to "focus on the real campaign issues" or whatever, need to get a sense of humour. This is simple fun and in no way detrimental to the democratic system. You're overreacting.
Besides...maybe this video will generate a greater interest in politics, even if on a superficial level. Better to drum up more voters for silly reasons than to leave the voter turnout and public interest as low as it is, I say.
