Video: "John He Is"

Via Ben Smith, it’s a rare parody that comments as sharply on its point of reference as on what’s being lampooned. This is a takeoff on the Obama “Yes, We Can” video, of course, featuring Maverick saying some tragically unhip things indeed about the United States facing more wars in the future and withdrawal from Iraq bringing about a sectarian holocaust. Watch it back to back with the original and compare the 200-proof pap emanating from the Messiah with McCain for once delivering some genuine straight talk. Reality’s such a buzzkill, man.

Exit question: Who’s going to tell his cretinous celebrity supporters that liberal Jesus’s Pakistan policy won’t be much different from President McCain’s?
