If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that occassionally, I run across an amateur video-homage to Barack Obama that I decide to feature here on BWFO! Today’s video (yes) comes from YouTube, and a contributor who goes by the name of “Eracex”.
What to say about THIS video – remarkably creative, and a giggle inducer if you’re an Obama fan like I’m an Obama fan. A little hint – if you didn’t see Senator Obama dancing on the Ellen Degeneres show, just go ahead and click ‘play':
You have to give Mr. Eracex points for creativity – taking the heated rantings of a man who is clearly NOT an Obama supporter, and turning them into a sample for such a catchy beat, that celebrates the man himself – I love it! And maybe we can all just decide to view this little video as a metaphor for our favorite Senator’s ability to withstand the slings and arrows that he so skillfully dodged during the Primary, and that he’s sure to fend off during the General Election as well.
Some may be concerned about Senator Obama’s perceived move to the political ‘center’ – not me. I understand that in order for Barack Obama to bring the change that we showed through our voting we so desperately long for, he has to make sure that mainstream America is comfortable that he is open to expanding his views on all issues – this is an absolute must if he is to pull together the coalition necessary to win in November, so it’s better that we all just relax and let the Obama Team do it’s thing. And I’m cool with that.
So fear not, Obamicans – I have no doubt that like the one-two punch he took at the bag in the video, Senator Obama and his brilliant campaign team are preparing to deliver the poltically fatal knockout punch to John McCain and his Bush-whacked policies this November, effectively obliterating John McCain’s chances at ever becoming President, and ending the Republicans’ reign of terror for the next 8 years. And let’s face it – when THAT happens, we’ll ALL feel like dancing. Even with Ellen if we have to.
