The Obama-Mania Music Video: Obsessed With Obama

Welcome to the cult of Barack Obama. When it comes to Obama’s fans, outrageous embellishment seems to be the rule, not the exception. His charms can be tough to resist, even for some of Hollywood’s biggest names. “He walks into a room and you want to follow him somewhere, anywhere,” George Clooney told talk show host Charlie Rose. “I’ll do whatever he says to do,” actress Halle Berry said to the Philadelphia Daily News. “I’ll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear.”

The true believers can “Obamatize” just about anything. Knitters for Obama crochet for him, Runners for Obama jog for him, and at Hold ‘Em Barack they bet on him. In Chicago, a recent art exhibit showed works depicting the candidate on canvas, paper and even in animated videos. A search on Flickr, the photo-sharing website, turns up pictures of Obama cakes, murals, etch-a-sketch drawings and even tattoos. On a crafts auction website, you can buy Obama jewelry, paintings, and even a homemade Obama Valentine. The valentine card shows a sketch of the candidate with the text, “I want to Barack your world.”

As the ongoing Obama-Mania reaches an increasingly fevered, frenzied on-line pitch, it was only a matter of time before the Obama OCD video appeared. And here it is, the sarcastically humorous Obsessed With Obama music video:

And to You Whoopi Goldberg, Bravo!!

As most people probably know by now, Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony featured many montages, one of which was described as a “montage of Oscar hosts” when it was introduced by George Clooney. The retrospective montage of past hosts included a moment of almost every host in the show’s history. But there was one host who was not included in that montage, the 4-time host and Academy Awards winner Whoopi Goldberg.

On Monday’s airing of the ABC television program The View, the subject was discussed ad nauseam by the “chatting-heads”, and Whoopi’s feelings of disappointment about the omission were abundantly and painfully clear. The other co-hosts spoke of Whoopi’s many historical milestones related to the ceremony: she was the first female Oscar host, the first Oscar winner to host, and only the second African-American woman to ever win an Oscar. Up until now, most writers about that particular program have described it simply in terms of how displeased the co-hosts were with the slight.

However, there is a different, possibly more plausible perspective on what actually took place Monday on The View. Consider that not only does Whoopi have to suffer the daily indignity of being reduced to just another “chatting-head” on The View, but also that her co-hosts insisted upon going on and on, in front of millions of American people, rubbing in the fact that the Oscar winning actress and Oscar hosting actress had not been shown in one of the montages on Sunday night. Dumb and dumberer Elisabeth Hasselbeck babbled on and on about how it must feel so terrible to be so slighted. Placing a cherry atop the poison pudding, the ever-duplicitous Barbara Walters unwittingly asserted that nothing Whoopi had ever done at the Oscars was really a Great Moment.

Whoopi just sat there, looking unbelievably miserable, trying to collect the remaining shards of her dignity that were being scattered around the set. When the others just wouldn’t stop, Whoopi quietly got up and gave each of them “the kiss of death” just to shut their mouths, briefly weeping when she got behind Barbara Walters.

Update: On Tuesday, the producer of the Oscar awards show apologized to Whoopi for leaving her out. The View should be interesting to watch tomorrow.
