Even if you support health care reform, this opposition video from Dem Strait has fun visuals, a good reworking of the lyrics, and as they used to say on Bandstand, it’s got a good beat, you can dance to it.
How would you give it if Dick Clark asked you for a rating?
Capitol Steps do a great take-off on the the Don McLean classic.

Never let it be said that The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart only picks on Republicans. Last night he proved he’s an equal opportunity annoyer in this discussion of the Massachusetts Senate race.

A reference in last night’s post on the Republicans throwing around nautical metaphors may have had many readers going “Huh? Sinking of the What?”
The song is actually “The Legend of the USS Titanic”, and while it was a staple of late night pirate radio in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, it’s probably not well known or long-remembered.
So here, for the curious or the nostalgic, is a YouTube video version. It’s long, and takes two videos…
In a new video from BarelyPolitical.com, Obama Girl, aka Amber Ettinger, makes a pitch for someone to be appointed to the Social Security Board.
The plea is set to “Man of Constant Sorrow,” and proves that blue-grass legend Ralph Stanley can still pick and sing, Obama Girl can dance even though she can’t lip-synch too well, and the guy they’re hyping, Eric C. Conn, should never ever quit his day job to become a dancer. But it’s a fun watch.

This is from a Web site that offers up a video of a new song every day. This one is interesting for two reasons:
1. It has an excellent message about the Internet.
2. It flashes on a Spokane “celebrity” about a 1 minute into the video.
Thanks to alert reader, former correspondent and longtime friend Reiko Tateya for bringing this to our attention.
Not that this is necessarily the best way to get national recognition for a local news story, but Jay Leno included a mention of one of our hottest topics in his Monday night monologue.
With a “How bizarre is this?” lead-in, he mentioned the escape of Phillip Paul at the county fair last week. “Apparently he blended in with the carnival ride operators.”
If you missed it and are dying to see the whole 1-minute bit, it’s at about 6 minutes into this clip. Sorry it’s the whole show from hulu.com, but it didn’t make the monologue highlights on the NBC site.
Things could get heated over the Sonia Sotomayor confirmation hearings, but it’s unlikely to get to the level of this recent seen from the South Korean parliament. (darn it)
John Hodgeman administers the ultimate nerd test to Barack Obama at the Radio and TV Correspondents Dinner. Can the president pass?
Tea Parties, pirates and puppies. That’s about it for Tuesday, according to TalkingPointsMemo.
This little ditty about the economy isn’t bad for the first 90 seconds, although it does get a bit repetitive. In the old American Bandstand lingo, I’d give it an 85: some of the words aren’t much, but it’s got a good beat…

Yesterday was “budget day” for the Obama Administration. Here’s the TalkingPointsMemo quick look at that, and a few other things.
