Obama Girl
Meets Her Match

Meet the Romney Girls -- identical triplets, all blondes, who are not be confused with each other. There's Frightening Romney Girl, who appreciates what Romney stood for in the 1980s. Then there's Athletic-y Romney Girl, who likes Romney for what he stood for in the 1990s. Then there's Infant Romney Girl, who supports Romney for what folks tell him he should stand for today.

And, suprise, surprise: All three Romney Girls are double-threats: singer-songwriters who'll come out with a new video soon.

In today's video, posted on the tongue-and-cheek online political site BarelyPolitical.com, the Romney Girls poke fun at Obama Girl's flip-flopping ways. With Romney, who leads the Republican field in Iowa in the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, increasing his attacks on Sen. Barack Obama, it only makes sense that the Romney Girls would follow suit, attacking Obama and Obama Girl.

In the video, which shows TV interviews with the lip-synching actress who plays Obama Girl, Obama Girl is heavily criticized for not picking a position. Does she really like Obama or what? And The Washington Post, unbeknownst to us, plays a guest starring role. A front-page above-the-fold headline with a photo of Obama Girl reads: "I'll meet with Ahmadinejad Girl first year." A second later, another front page, above-the-fold headline, again with a photo of Obama Girl, reads: "I am SO NOT meeting with Ahmadinejad Girl this year."

For those keeping track, this is Obama Girl's fourth video.

We wonder what the Romney Brothers, the five sons of Romney who are blogging it upon their dad's official site, will make of all of this.
