This video is near the top of Drudge, so you might have seen it, but I thought it was amusing enough that I wanted to run it anyway for you here.
It’s a country music song by a new PAC, Stand With Hillary, which says it will be selling Hillary to Latinos and workin’ folks.
Promoting Hillary as country seems a little like trying to frame Al Shaprton as a member of the British aristocracy. I mean, she’s a Chicago girl who went to Wellesley, for goodness sake. True, she stuck it out in Arkansas for several years and even learned to affect a Southern accent, but for the past two decades she’s been a confirmed Washingtonian and a very wealthy denizen of a ritzy New York City suburb.
She’s a mother, a daughter, and through it all, she’s a lovin’ wife, the singer croons. Well, every woman is a daughter, so no big deal there. And yes, she’s a mother, but that’s not a rare thing. But a lovin’ wife? Sorry, but we heard too many stories while I was covering the Clinton White House of her throwing porcelain lamps at Bill. On the other hand, I suppose, yes, she certainly did stand by her very naughty man.
Notice a little symbolic touch in the video – the woman drives the motorcycle, and the man climbs on back.
According to the Washington Post, Stand with Hillary is a California-based project of Daniel Chavez, a longtime Democratic political operative, and media producer Miguel Orozco, who wrote the song. Orozco appears to be the guy on the left playing guitar in the video.
Orozco is the same guy wrote this on behalf of Obama in 2008. It’s catchier, though grindingly repetitive.
