(CNN) - She's back.

Amber Lee Ettinger, the star of the last year's wildly popular online video "Obama girl," is out with a new video this week that decries Hillary Clinton's insistence on remaining in the presidential race.

The new video - titled "Hillary, stop the attacks!" - opens with a takeoff on Clinton's now-famous "3 a.m." ad, and quickly transitions to Ettinger addressing the New York Democrat head on.

"I know Obama's gonna win it/but you're sorta kind of stayin' in it. I think sometimes in this campaign/You've got a crush on John McCain," she sings.

"Can't you see its hopeless? It's become an Obama-nation. Is their any chance you'll back off? So he'll get that nomination," she also says.

In the 3 minute video, Ettinger also makes clear CNN.com is her political Web site of choice:

"I watch CSPAN and they're always showing one of your rallies/Checking the CNN Ticker, can't keep my eyes off the tallies."

Created by the Web site barelypolitical.com, the first "Obama Girl" video debuted last June and quickly became an Internet sensation. To date, it has been viewed well over 7 million times, according to You Tube. The video spawned several spoofs, including "Hot 4 Hill" and the "Brownback girl."

    Sen. Obama, you are sure a CHANGE guy. You have already transformed normal politics to the trash talking. You sit quitely in the pew while your paster trashed America & now you have a Obama girl reducing serious politics to cheap entertainment. Go Obama, just go away.

    Also there is media's part. Media shall not take these as news. If kids want to do it, let them do it. But media shall not promote these things as news.

    She should be the one to stop, she can't sing, she has to have someone else sing while she just moves her lips. Sad, sad, sad, isn't her 15 minutes up. She needs to get some talent first then talk.
