Les Misbarack « PREV | NEXT »: Blogito Ergo Sum

October 20, 2008

While we're on the subject...

We've certainly come a long way since Jesse Ventura pioneered the use of the Internet during his campaign for governor of Minnesota in 1998. And I must say, the music videos floating around have been a source of comfort during this anxiety-producing election year. (Although I have to say, every time I see "Les Misbarack," I find myself marching around all day with that tune doing an endless loop in my brain.) Obama is an international phenomenon being serenaded by singers of all stripes, thanks to YouTube. Here are two of my favorites.

From Venice:
Gondoliers for Obama

And from Dublin, the Old Sod:
There's No One as Irish as Barack O'bama

And let's not forget: Yes We Can.
