Barack Obama: The Parody

Posted by Angry New Mexican under Angry New Mexican Rants, Angry Overeducated Catholic Rants, POTUS, Politics

There’s nothing like a presidential campaign that makes it time for a good parody. With all of the talk about Obama being a rockstar or a messiah, I knew there was no better way to capture that then with a parody of Jesus Christ, Superstar. The narrator of JCS is the apostle Judas. Here, I can think of no better narrator than Bill Clinton. Special thanks to AOC again. Without further ado, I give you:

Obama Superstar

Narrator (Bill Clinton as Judas Iscariot ):

Every time I look at you
I don’t understand
Why you let the things you did
Get so out of hand
You’d have managed better
If you followed my plan
Now why’d you choose to leave Illinois
And run cross the land?

If you’d come in eight years,
‘could have run the whole nation!
Now you’re gonna give us GOP domination!

Bill & Girls:
Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong, now
Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong, now
Don’t you get me wrong

Only want to know
Only want to know
Only want to know, now
Only want to know
Only want to know
Only want to know
Only want to know, now
Only want to know

Girls:

Who are you? Are you truly heaven-sent?

Bill:
Tell me what you think
About your friends at the top
Now who d’you think besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Hillary was she where it’s at?
Is she where you are?
Could McCain stop Gitmo torture
Or was that just PR?

Did you mean to chill with Wright?
Was that a mistake or
Did you know his racial hate
Would be a record breaker?

Bill & Girls:
Don’t you get me wrong Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong, now Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong, now Don’t you get me wrong
