Obligatory: Congresswoman and interns parody “Call Me, Maybe”

posted at 3:01 pm on July 2, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

If you’ve only just managed to finally get this cringe-worthy yet singularly awesome song out of your head, I’m sorry, but I can’t not post this.

Just in case you’re behind the curve on the infuriatingly catchy “Call Me, Maybe” craze, here’s the breakdown: The original; the possibly more famous Justin Bieber home movie; and the who-can-explain-why-but-it-is viral Harvard baseball team car-dancing sensation. Internet parodies of all three abound, but this is the first I’ve heard of a Congressional office getting in on the spoof-of-a-spoof action:

Cute. That was Rep. Loretta Sanchez, Democrat from California, and her interns having a little fun (although I’m hoping that was the one-time work of a long lunch break — back to work, people!). Now that the darn song is back into your head though, may as well just embrace it, right?

This is what $140k a year gets you from your Representative.

BobMbx on July 2, 2012 at 3:07 PM

infuriatingly catchy

singularly awesome

Not what I’d use to describe this swill.

Different strokes, I guess.

This is the best version by far:

Hill60 on July 2, 2012 at 3:13 PM

Come on. It was cute. I’ve never heard this song before nor seen any of these videos until this post. But I always like it when our Congresscritters do little things like this. Democrat, Republican, it’s just good clean fun.

I find nothing the communist dictators do cute.

I just have a hard time separating these people from their destructive ambitions and this was a wasted thread!!!!!!!!!

Alex, I’ll take “Slow News Day Categories for Fiddy Cents”…

hillsoftx on July 2, 2012 at 3:17 PM

Wasn’t there a better representation on you tube by people I can enjoy?

katy on July 2, 2012 at 3:17 PM

…how many interns does she have…besides the ones sitting in front of her desk?

KOOLAID2 on July 2, 2012 at 3:18 PM

At 0:19, there is a pretty blond intern alert who contrasts sharply with the elderly red-clad lady who for some reason wears a pig mask.

Wait, say again – there’s a song there?..

The Barackabama one was really good. Loretta Sanchez can eat dirt for all I care.

SouthernGent on July 2, 2012 at 3:28 PM

Is she the one known as the slut?

Blake on July 2, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Super cute.

Sure, if you’re wearing bobby sox and reading “Teen Beat” magazine …

Vote people. Or we’ll get more of this crap..on our dime, no less.

BlaxPac on July 2, 2012 at 3:30 PM

Good thing the adults are in charge.

Bad thing is they’re about as adult as the actors in “adult movies”.

NoDonkey on July 2, 2012 at 3:33 PM

Worse thing: The adults in “Adult Movies” actually created jobs…and profit.

BlaxPac on July 2, 2012 at 3:36 PM

Whatever. I’m sure Loretta still hates Vietnamese people.

Is it just me that is reminded of Elaine on Seinfeld dancing. NO RHYTHM!

faol on July 2, 2012 at 3:50 PM

I have yet to hear this song or any parodies of it. I will not start now.

rndmusrnm on July 2, 2012 at 3:54 PM

Isn’t she from Orange County, the same county so many here still insist is conservative?

riddick on July 2, 2012 at 3:58 PM

so that is what some of my tax money goes towards, great.

tommer74 on July 2, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Seriously. We had MUCH better music in the 60′s and 70′s. Actually, they had MUCH better music in the 40′s and 50′s. What an awful ‘tune’.

Portia46 on July 2, 2012 at 4:02 PM

I lasted about 40 seconds. Can anyone beat that?

hawkdriver on July 2, 2012 at 4:03 PM

Jerry Hayden is the Republican candidate who is running against Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) in California’s 46th Congressional District.

You can learn more about Jerry Hayden at his campaign website:
http://haydenforcongress.com/

If you live in or near CA District 46, please let us all know what you think of Jerry Hayden.

I like what I see on Jerry Hayden’s campaign website.

If we want a large Republican Majority in the House, we need to start increasing the name recognition for our candidates.

If you support Jerry Hayden as a candidate to defeat Rep. Sanchez, please help to spread the word about him.

Only 4 months until the election!

This is the theme song for my DC Kickball team.

As a joke, I actually bought a “Call Me Maybe” t-shirt, and wore it to one of our Friday happy hours.

To say it was a hit is an understatement. I had random people stopping me on the street wanting to take a picture of the shirt.

Congress is a real racist good ole boy club.

Why doesnt she celebrate diversity and hire a white guy.

swamp_yankee on July 2, 2012 at 4:31 PM

It’s just some people having a little fun. What’s wrong with that?

Solaratov on July 2, 2012 at 4:32 PM

Never heard the song before. Not moved by the video one bit. I guess I am just out of touch, which is fine with me!

I don’t get it. Some chick named Justin Beiber sings a lame song and some idiot lefty and her staff do the Macarena? This is neither cute nor entertaining.

tigerinexile on July 2, 2012 at 6:31 PM

Man, the music that’s out now sounds like garbage.

Its all the same techno-babbly-auto-tune-heavy-drum-beat crap.

RedbonePro on July 2, 2012 at 6:40 PM

I love this song, and the Obama parodies are usually pretty amusing.

Aquarian on July 2, 2012 at 6:56 PM

Loretta Sanchez definitely has the rhythm of a white Hispanic.

Seriously, you people in California must be so proud that your Congresscritter defines crap like this as “doing the business of the American people.” How many taxpayer-paid hours went into producing that crap?

Happy Nomad on July 2, 2012 at 8:53 PM

Heard the song, first time saw the video (great ending, btw, lol).

Midas on July 2, 2012 at 9:32 PM

Catchiest. Song. Ever.

netster007x on July 2, 2012 at 11:30 PM

Some of you folks need to lighten up. Sheesh. I bet you’d be miserable to live with.

“Happy birthday grandma!” “Happy birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY? THE COUNTRY IS FACING IMMINENT COLLAPSE WE HAVE A SOCIALIST DICTATOR IN OFFICE TRYING TO TAKE AWAY MY RIGHT TO FREEDOMS AND GUNS AND HE’S A CLOSET MUSLIM. HAPPY BIRTHDAY? I’D RATHER BE DEAD THAN LIVE UNDER A COMMUNIST REGIME”

Seriously. As much as I dislike Obama, nothing he’s doing can’t be undone within a few years. The years you’re all taking off your lives by stressing isn’t really worth it.

NoStoppingUs on July 3, 2012 at 2:56 AM

Catchiest.Crappiest. “Song.” Ever.

netster007x on July 2, 2012 at 11:30 PM

Fixed.

Hahaha, she looks so dumb.

Rusty Allen on July 3, 2012 at 11:33 AM

It is bad enough that we had to watch Mitch McConnell fumbling for a defination of federalism on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace last Sunday (obvioulsy he has been in Washington too long and is now out of step with the conservative movement – if he ever was one which I doubt) now we have to put up with Latina with no sense of rhythm that supports Obama. And people wonder what has become of this country? And Hot Air, one of the last sites displaying any sanity, has to foist this on us. Please no more pop-culture. I don’t need to be lowered to the common denominator by Hot Air. Thank you!
