Campaign Video of the Day -- February 12, 2008

Recently Will.I.Am and Jesse Dylan produced an inspirational video called Yes We Can. Based on a Barack Obama speech, Will.I.Am's video has received enormous play all across the web.

Not to be outdone John.He.Is has inspired a response based on his trademarked platform of "less jobs, more wars." Blue Girl is forever sending us emails telling us that we can't take sides, so since I ran "Yes We Can" on February 2, 2008, I thought it only fitting to run John.He.Is's responsive "No We Can't" today. In the interest of fairness the following are the John McCain inspired lyrics:

The work that we face in our time is great
in a time of war
and the terrible sacrifices it entails
the promise of a better future is not always clear
there's gonna be other wars
I'm sorry to tell you there's gonna be other wars
there's gonna be a lot of combat wounds
and my friends it's gonna be tough
and we're gonna have a lot to do
That old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran?
Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb...
I'm still convinced that withdrawal means chaos
and if you think that things are bad now
if we withdraw--you ain't seen nothing yet
was the war a good idea, worth the price in blood and treasure?
It was a good idea
President Bush talked about our staying in Iraq for 50 years
Maybe a hundred, that's fine with me
I don't think Americans are concerned if we're there for a hundred years, or a thousand years, or ten thousand years
Hey Republicans, have fun selling a hundred years war this fall.

Inspiring John McCain Video after the break. Yeh right, the video inspires me to work against him with every fiber of my being.
