Hillary4U&Me

Peter Hauck

A friend sends along this music video. Although originally posted on YouTube a few months back, the clip has been making the email rounds during the past week or so. It's audio-visual waterboarding.

It reminds me of those musical groups elementary and middle schools bring in all the time to warn kids about the dangers of drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol. You know, where there are four, multi-ethnic twenty-somethings, each wearing a different neon-colored shirt. And then they do musical skits about how un-cool it is to do drugs.

Yeah, those didn't work very well either.

It makes complete sense. Her demographic and base are the uneducated, elderly. Soft candy music that makes no sense is right up her bases alley.

It's positively Over The Hillary...

Oh My God ...this can't be serious...
Up With People with a less useful message.

Houston, Hillary has JUMPED the Shark.

Quick...somebody call the Jackson 5.

"ABC", the Jackson 5's hit from the early 70s, was funky and cool because it was young, fresh, and new. This Hillary tune isn't only derivative...The Jackson 5 have probably forgotten more about funk and energy than the songwriters, lyricists, and performers involved in this Hillary project have *ever known*.

The day after she won the NH primaries via the votes of retired folks and middle-aged blue collar workers...she packed the stage behind her with...you guessed it...college students. Not only disingenous, but not gracious enough to thank her real supporters...but she's made an art for out of that, jetting out of states she's lost before the results are in rather than staying through the evening and thanking her people.

Hillary, please just be honest! If you're ever going to have any hope of expanding your calcified base, it is not going to be with young people! They are much smarter than that.

HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

That video is funny and corny. It pales in comparison to the Obama video done by Will.I.Am and Dylan called YES WE CAN!
