Here’s what’s making the rounds today on e-mail, presumably as an illustration of the theory that anything with politicians’ heads photoshopped into a popcult touchstone can evoke a smile. The title: “Project Make McCain Exciting,” which is golden in how it reveals by implication how shallow Obama’s own appeal is. Why they’d choose an almost 20-year old music video that was barely risque for its time to show how stale and pedestrian Maverick is escapes me, except possibly as some very “meta” irony. Any mash-up weapon to hand, I guess.
