I can't believe I watched that whole thing.

Who was framing the shot? Geez.

They even have a hideous green background just like McCain did. Also, I hope that one of them turns out gay.

Someone call CPS please, to get these kids removed from the home of their psychopathic parents!

Mom and dad will be grandparents before Obama's first term is over.

You're damned straight we will.

"We won't have another ground zero/Because he's our hero?" Gross!

What part of them is attractive exactly?

I love how the little white kids who worship a gazillionaire call Obama a "snob" while performing a rap.

Good thing I accepted the complete insanity of the world this afternoon, or I wouldn't know what to make of this.

uhm ... is it me or are the girls starting to get the suburban goth build?

Looks like we have another Colbert "Green Screen Challenge" candidate.

uh, why did mcain-palin voters make an ad for abortion?

Posted by brandon | October 29, 2008 5:52 PM


thank you.

Feh, screw 'em! These kids are cuter.

Isn't illegal for SLOG to have contact with people under the age of 18?

Please...remove this video at once.

So it's okay to use your kids as political props but only for Democratic candidates?

Posted by UnoriginalAndrew | October 29, 2008 6:27 PM

I was driving my girl scout troop around today and they all claimed to be voting for Obama even though they live in Sammamish (solid McCain/Rossi territory if the yard signs are any indicator). I wonder how their parents feel about that.

Other than supporting the wrong candidate, there's nothing wrong with this video - calling the parents assholes or psychopaths is over the top. These kids' silly song is a far cry from the little urchins calling Obama "a monkey from Tarzan" that we saw in another video linked here.

That as so awkward it gave me goosebumps

Remember: 9/11 didn't happen in New York City, it happened in Real America, which existed around 1000' above New York City for a few seconds until it crumbled into a heap that exists about 80' below New York City to this day.

Real Americans live in Real America, crawling out every so often like CHUDs.

When I was that age, I was super-politicized. Heck, I campaigned for Jesse Jackson back when he was kind of cool. I'm sure the shirt's still around somewhere...

Isn't that Smoosh?

At least they're not Prussia Blue

I had to stop it after they started singing. I couldn't handle it.

In a far less stomach churning display of youthful support, an acquaintance of mine is a teacher, and his students launched made and launched this site today:

oh please, this isn't abuse, this is just corny shit.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | October 29, 2008 7:52 PM

I can't watch... it makes feel sick and dirty. Ahhhhh!

Posted by SDizzle | October 29, 2008 7:53 PM

I feel the green screen is very apropos.

Posted by ablebacon | October 29, 2008 7:53 PM

QUICK! someone call youth and family services! that's child abuse.

If you think that's in bad taste I guess you haven't seen this:

Do I sense a green screen challenge?

Posted by obamatron | October 30, 2008 12:22 AM

Okay, that tears it; I'm taking the Slog out of my RSS aggregator. Unsubscribe!

Kids are dicks.

@28 - Jeezus. Words fail.

Posted by Levislade | October 30, 2008 10:23 AM

I'm totally sending this along to the Colbert Report ...

What should the challenge be called?

Posted by go, stephen!! | October 30, 2008 10:32 AM

Ouch, I only lasted 13 seconds.

Posted by Lavode | October 30, 2008 11:00 AM

This isn't any worse than the stupid parents that let their kids march around Green Lake for Obama. Leave the kids out of it.
