This one’s all over the place today, and for good reason it’s sheer genius. Barak Obama has a new fan, and she’s willing to use every weapon available to get his attention. Check out these soon-to-be-classic lyrics:

Oh, my. See for yourself:
Kate Phillips has more details at The Caucus. I gotta tell ya, politics in the age of citizen media is going to be fun as hell what’s next? Thanks to Burt Edwards for the tip-off.

Funny idea…but, honestly, a little painful to watch.
