Obama as Candy Man – Viral Video part 5

Others have picked up on the rhetoric over substance debate, calling Obama the Candy Man ala Sammy Davis, Jr and Hillary fan or critic (it’s hard to tell from the poor quality of the video) has gotten her into the mix with a video, although Tina Fey’s Saturday Night Live spots about Hillary (“bitch is the new black”) may have actually had some impact in shaping (at the very least reflecting) the tone of the campaign leading up to the March 4 primaries.

Some folks are even reaching back to put Ronald Reagan, the original modern master of personality politics, into the act, telling the makers of these videos and the pols to just Aw, shut up.

It really is a YouTube world and a YouTube election. Just don’t forget to get out the vote.
