If anything ruins these sorts of videos it’s the ridiculous credit roll. It’s longer than the production.

  1. pat says:

    Very clever skit. Not something that Obama could use directly though, as he has even less experience than the “wife”.

  2. eaze says:

    That was crap

  3. Ah_Yea says:

    Come on now, that was funny!

    Sometimes it’s good to have a simple laugh.

    The credits were a bit long, but blame the Screen Actors Guild for that one.

  4. Hmeyers says:

    It was funny. They should have the courage to run it on TV.

    It’s true Obama’s experience isn’t much greater or possibly less than Hillary’s, but the ad does a great job of putting some lightheartedness in what has lately been part of a primary season without much a sense of humor.

    I thought the red phone part was particularly funny.

  5. Sinn Fein says:

    You can tell which campaign has $$$ to burn.

  6. Eric says:

    That black nurse was Deputy Raineesha Williams from Reno 911! She is SO HOT!

  7. RBG says:

    Was the indecisive black surgeon supposed to represent Obama?


  8. alex says:

    Now that was totally predictable and boring.

  9. bill says:

    Decent production value…

    Weak script!

  10. bobbo says:

    Yep–I watched the credits of a movie last night and “Third Best Boy” was listed.

    My only thought was “Why am I too lazy to find the remote” followed with “I’ll bet Forth Best Boy is really pissed.”

    Cultural Note==when attending movies-anywhere-in the LA area, it is very bad form to leave while credits are rolling. You have to pretend that you or a close friend are listed and you are waiting for confirmation.

  11. bobbo says:

    PS–I know what a “gaffer” is but what is a Best Boy? and why so many? (I’ll go google now as I should have anyway..)

    [Best boy. – ed.]

  12. Pharaoh90 says:

    This is funny because it came up out of nowhere.

    The anesthesiologist Niecy Nash never seen her with so little makeup on…

    Credits are for the peoples whose names are in them ;-P

  13. McCullough says:

    So who was the “fluffer” on this shoot.

  14. MikeN says:

    Obama should drop out while he’s ahead. He looks good for a future run. Just imagine how it’ll look if he said,’I don’t have the experience to be president. I endorse Gore.’

  15. chuck says:

    It took 6 people (including 3 “executive” producers) to produce that steaming pile.

  16. Ah_Yea says:

    The only thing that would have made this video better would have been the Obama girls standing in for the surgeons.

  17. Mr. Catshit says:

    I thought it was cute. A nice touch would have been to have McCain on the table.

  18. pat says:

    #17 – That would have been great.

  19. Sea Lawyer says:

    I’ve never really understood this debate about presidential qualifications anyway. Yes, I would like the person who will be President to have a good level of knowledge about current events and situations in the world, a good understanding of history and knows something about how economics really works. Being able to effectively communicate with people and get them to work together is a necessity too. But what “qualifications” does one really need to be President?

    I don’t see Obama as being any less or more “qualified” than either Clinton or McCain. The only real qualifications required are those that are outlined in the Constitution. Hell, most of our past presidents have either been lawyers, soldiers or both, and it seems to me that all three candidates fall into one of those groups. This does not mean that I view their proposals and ideas as being of equal merit.

  20. Mark Derail says:

    hand raised

    I don’t get it.

    Is it because I’m Canadian?

  21. Kemal says:

    Yeah me too like Hussein Obama! Love from Turkey!

  22. Hmeyers says:

    @17 … LOL!

  23. Chris Mac says:

    The credits must be part of the joke

  24. Mr. Catshit says:

    #20, Mark,

    Maybe. There is so little difference between Clinton and Obama. The differences are so small we are now arguing over “tastes great” and “less filling”. Yet this is what they must define if they are to win the nomination.

    After the dust settles and we have a single nominee, look for a substantial change in the rhetoric and much more focus on McCain’s bungling.

  25. gregallen says:

    Sorry. Not buying the ad.

    Politics isn’t surgery. Totally invalid analogy.

    Hillary was a FRONT ROW, engaged first lady.

    She was not a LAURA BUSH, she was an Eleanor Roosevelt.

    I, personally think Eleanor could have stepped into the presidency and done a great job.

  26. MikeN says:

    She wasn’t engaged in very much, mostly because they told her to get lost. Where she was engaged, it was the opposite of what she claims now. She helped push for NAFTA. NOw she claims that health care was all Bill’s fault.

  27. MikeN says:

    Either way Obama will end up leading in the delegate count while losing the popular vote and the electoral vote, as well as the winner-take-all delegate count.

  28. Ruffian says:

    MikeN, don’t look now, but Obama is WINNING the popular vote count too.
