First off, it's sobering to see Ellen Get Up On The Good Foot better than the possible POTUS! I blame the Michael Jacksonesque-blanching effect of Harvard Law!

But it is comforting to know if this whole campaign thing doesn't work out, he can go on tour with Tears for Fears.

Hilarious!

He's obviously a terrorist. And his middle name is HUSSEIN. Did you know he's Muslim????

Middle Class Guy said...

Nice clip. Now we know. Obama can't dance!

I was wondering when you were going to get around to posting this, it's too hysterical to pass up. I've seen it linked 3 or 4 other places already.

Will I be called out as a racist if I note that Obama dances like a white guy? Was it Seinfeld or SNL or someone else that noted that all white guys dance the same way? My cultural literacy isn't up to the task this morning.

I like that he dances like a dork

knox said...

I mean, it fits in perfectly with how I think of him. To me, he's pretty naive, kind of a doofus, but still likable. I think as we get closer to the election he's going to start panicking: "How did I get here?" and he's going to look less and less cool and more like the person dancing in this clip.

He may not ever tell a lie, but he may "speak inartfully."

AllenS said...

He's not the dancer I once knew.

This is not my beautiful house! This is not my beautiful wife!

Same as it ever was.

This is a riot! I can't wait for the McCain version. With what song though? I suppose McRolling would provide a direct comparison of the candidates on their merits, but I suspect there is a more humorous ditty out there.

Windbag said...

He dances like he bowls.

veni vidi vici said...

Half-white men can't dance.

Seven Machos said...

That was excellent.

Richard said...

Obama dances like old people fuck.

Seven Machos said...

Okay, anti-Obamers. I'm one of you. Let's take off our special anti-Obamer glasses here and judge. Obama looks pretty cool. He has grace. The video itself is executed in a cool way.

Okay, now let's all put our anti-Obamer glasses back on and (through our special anti-Obamer mouthpieces) call him a tax-and-spend leftist who will bring back staglfation and a foreign-policy disaster waiting to happen.

knox said...

Obama looks pretty cool.

uh, the opposite?

Ann Althouse said...

I thought Obama looked really attractive here. This should be counted as pro-Obama post.

In your eyes. Everyone else knows this is a montage of outtakes set to one-hit-wonder Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give you Up."

Rick Astley was a particular favourite of mine when I was a girl, and was called the white man with the black voice in the UK.

The inference, especially during his white-man-dork-dance is explicit.

Cheers,
