As a parody of Bob Dylan’s '60s political anthem, "The Times They Are A-Changin'," the video features Obama, McCain, both Clintons and even a cameo from a banjo-playing Dubya. Barack riding a unicorn through the enchanted forest is genius, but the Clinton cigar scene was priceless as well. read more
