This is a great parody of the recent phone-call-at-three-in-the-morning ads:

Clinton, Inc. Vs. The Soporanos

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

The campaign pulled a clever but dubious move in producing a short video taking off from the final scene of finale for their announcement of the campaign theme song. The clip is clever because hitches on the wide popularity of a pop culture phenomenon that, because of the show’s finale, was garnering a ton of publicity. The clip is dubious because by using The Sopranos reference, Bill and Hillary are implicitly comparing themselves to an organized crime family.

I have no idea whether this was the case with Blue State Digital, but I just sorta wonder if these firms specifically employ "fall guys" with the understanding that they’ll conduct these type of campaigns. It just seems awfully convenient.

Tone Deaf Hillary Clinton Sings National Anthem

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

surely did not know that the microphone would be isolated on her during the and maybe her voice was raw from campaigning all day or maybe she’s just plain tone deaf but she most certainly wouldn’t have sung this badly if she’d known her performance would end up online. This may not be very fair but it is very funny:
