Perhaps the Oddest Obama Girl Video Yet

OK, BoomTown admits we love Obama Girl, but this video has to be the strangest one in the series by Barely Political.

In this one just released, former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel–who made a run at the Democratic presidential nomination and is now trying to be the Libertarian Party candidate and who is not, let us be honest, Obamalicious–sings with the now-famous Obama Girl.

Also, my favorite, Gravel says at the end as Obama Girl walks away: “If you have second thoughts, I’m on Twitter!”

Well, someone outside of Silicon Valley has to be.
