Litmus Test

Jonah Goldberg says he can tell all about your politics based on whether or not you find this creepy.

Creepy? Creepy? I can’t tell if it’s real or a cruel parody of Obamatons.


Roger Simon doesn’t share my doubts.

Watching this video has disturbed me more than almost anything I have seen in recent years.  It is the kind of exploitation of children that reminds me of Young Pioneer Camps I saw when visiting the Soviet Union in the Eighties.

I did have that same thought: What would people say if the kiddies were singing that way about McCain?

Another Update:

A emailer to The Corner says the original was much better. Here it is.

Guess what? The kiddies are Zucker-funded Astroturf. I guess when you’re the boss at NBC/Universal it’s easy to scare up HD cameras and an Avid suite.

And it turns out that Mark Hemingway named this malady last year. It’s MCS: Manipulated-Child Syndrome.

One More Update:

Reason TV pretty much nails it.
