Friday Night Videos: The Obama National Anthem

Alright.. technically it is Saturday morning as I post this, but work with me here, it's been an overwhelming - and yet amazingly underwhelming - Friday.

This video has been around since before the election, but right now it most certainly is in need of a replay. It started as a song, and then was set to video after it went viral.

Created by the Glenn Beck Program, The Obama National Anthem is set to the tune of the Anthem of the Soviet Union. This comedic piece of genius is a summation of many of the statements made by the Obama campaign, as well as the general mood that was, during the time of the primaries and the general election.

Behind this marvelous creation is an extremely interesting story. As we know, "artists" are always more than happy to be involved in creations that ridicule the "right" politicians and religions. However, as Glenn described on his radio show, "artists" would have nothing to do with performing this portrayal of then candidate Obama.

Funny that, Glenn Beck is a very wealthy man who owns the company that produces his radio show. As an example of Glenn's generosity and willingness to spend good money for good work, Beck has said that he provides his staff with the best possible health insurance package that he is able to buy. Given that, you would think some people probably passed on a good paycheck because of their.. well, because they are stupid, in my opinion.

So... as he.. excuse me... as 'He' wins his "King Of The World" award, let us all pay tribute to Barack Hussein Obama, The Obamessiah, Lord Barry The Most Merciful, by standing and singing his praises.

All Hail The Messiah,
Obama, Obama.
The path to the new Socialist Motherland!

Our Savior, Our Savior,
Obama, Obama.
The leader more famous than Lindsay Lohan!

Bow down and praise "The One"
Give him your money and your guns.

Give us a country that makes your wife proud!

Lord Barry, Heal the bitter ones!
White and clinging to Faith and to guns.

Hope for the Change of the Hope of the Change!

Brilliant! And also sickening. I hadn't seen this. I also didn't know that about Glenn, which makes me have even more respect for him.

This is a good Video. I just luv Glenn. He would be the best boss to work for. Keep the Great VIdeo's Coming.

Soloman said...

Tammy.. glad you got to see it then, since you had not previously.

Soloman said...

Bunni - he's got a promotion going right now where you produce a video and get it seen the most, and you can meet him. On his radio show he said "we're always looking for good talent" so he must be looking for a new staff member.

Luv the song.

Sometimes we wonder how our great Mormon faith can produce such dichotomous adherents ranging from heroic Glenn Beck and Mitt Romney to "stinky tourists" Harry Reid.

Soloman said...

Hey nacil -

I understand your thought, but of course what you question about Mormonism is true in any religion.

As one example, Catholicism brings us many great people, then there's Nancy Pelosi...

I think your question proves why we do not have a religious litmus test for public office.

Unfortunately, we can't have a competency test either...

I'm giving him a single-digit salute at this very moment.

Soloman said...

You are indeed a patriot, Dr. Dave...

Hey, the Obama in the video looks more like the SNL Obama than the real Obama.
I love Glenn, too. I've heard the song, but have never seen the video.
