Hillary for You & also for Me

Hello. The tiny Grâce-roots Barack Obama campaign on itwaslost.org usually doesn't go negative, only posting optimistic thingamabobs about the primary season. However, this attempt at turning the youtube tides towards Sen. Clinton had me guffawing & chortling in unkind derision. And since Grainne posted some of the successful Obama efforts, & of course my campaign songs, it's relevant to study the competition. About "Hillary 4U&Me", the Economist blog wrote, "Unfortunately, no one with any musical talent appears to have been involved in the effort. I must warn you, the following video is very creepy and probably shouldn't be watched if there are kids in the room."




I wanted to post this comment, but they have been disabled:


"nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for changing the station"

Update:
I found some more "smooth jazz" written by the guy who wrote that song, Gene Wang. Pretty appropriate for the Clinton campaign.

This website has listenable songs: http://cdbaby.com/cd/genewang

And, it lets you click on more than one play button simultaneously, if you want awesome smooth jazz cacophony.

Important Update! The song "M-V-P is H-O-T" (click on the link above) is the SAME SONG as "Hillary 4U&Me"! He just re-wrote the lyrics! It's a fucking jingle!
Download.

Compare lyrics from the earlier jingle & the political re-write:

Your cell-phone's out of range,
And you know it's time for a change.

-Gene Wang, "MVP is H-O-T"

Our goals are out of range,
So we know it's time for a change.

-Gene Wang, "Hillary 4U&Me"
So, by the transitive property of Huckabee, a vote for Mrs Clinton is a vote for better cell-phone reception.

Friday Update: Gene Wang defends his own video: here.

Holy cow I can't believe you uncovered the jingle.
