Via everybody, but especially Balloon Juice and Andrew Sullivan and whoever finally brought this dark truth to light, here is the video that will ruin Obama’s campaign. You shouldn’t have given up, Hillary. And congratulations to President elect John McCain. [YouTube]

  1. First. (That is, I am the first white American voter to have experienced this particular rickroll).

    I’m honored!

    And I should be in bed. But instead, I’m at work, politely telling Japanese tourists the nearest place the can buy condoms. Ah, the glamorous life of an innkeeper.

  2. This is a disaster. I have lost all of my faith in democracy and the American way. How could they do this to us?! After watching that video, I have no choice but to leave for Canada.

  3. I was going to post the exact same thing on Youtube last night, but I went to sleep after Windows Movie Maker started acting finicky… by the time I woke up this morning, apparently half a dozen other people had had the exact same idea. Mine would have been much better though, because it would have been an actual Michelle Obama speech for the first 20 seconds. The guy who posted this wins on speed, but the execution is shoddy as hell. God, I remember the days when people took some pride in their rickrolls!

  4. [re=10420]ronaldpagan[/re]: She could tell a lie and hurt us (like a big ol’ bag o’ dicks)– what do we do? VP her?

  5. [re=10421]Smoke Filled Roommate[/re]: At least those are white dicks. If Michelle ate them, would it be racial transcendence?

  6. [re=10424]ronaldpagan[/re]: Speaking of white dicks, I wonder if that cute little Japanese girl (she came down with her boyfriend, in search of condoms) would like to see one.

    OK, I think I may be steeping over the line of international hospitality here.

    International Relations! HA! I am now a diplomat! Seriously, those 20-something Japanese girls are cute. They are a weakness of mine.

    Never mind me, I only get this creepy when I’m drinking bourbon on the night shift.

  7. [re=10426]ronaldpagan[/re]: I’m confident there will be a highly credible, hi-def video of Bary O gettin’it on with his kids’ 17-year-old French au pair girl before Nov 1. Despite the fact that the Obamas have never employed an au pair.

    It’s an election year, after all.

  8. [re=10428]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: I want to work someplace where I can get away with drinking bourbon! Don’t think you have a chance with that Japanese girl here with her boyfriend, though. Sorry.

  9. [re=10431]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Is there an elevator in which you could both horrify and amuse her with your tiny member?

  10. [re=10431]Lascauxcaveman[/re]:

    Dear Fox News,

    Audicity and I would both be happy to play the au pair. And, not to undermine Audicity, but I could pass for Arab. I’ll need to make sure your Barry lookalike meets my high standards, though; you people tend to think all “coloreds” look the same.


  11. [re=10434]heathenish[/re]: Right you are.

    [re=10432]ronaldpagan[/re]: In my experience, any place you are the only employee on site after 10pm is a pretty good place to to be drinking bourbon on the job. It also helps if you are the general manager, as am I. It’s a really small hotel. Come visit, next time you are on the North Olympic Peninsula! Bring many young Asian girls with you. I will provide much bourbon.

  12. [re=10438]ronaldpagan[/re]: With your masculine screen name, I keep forgetting you’re a female.

    How do feel about performing across Tim Meadows? I hear he’s looking for work these days. A little makeup and lighting; he could pass. I used to work for an ABC affiliate, I bet I could get an inside line to some FOX producers for a project such as this. There are A LOT of FOX producers who work strictly on spec (no kidding?!) Might be your big break, if you can make it dramatic without overselling it like I’ve seen some do…

  13. [re=10439]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Port Angeles, eh? I rarely make it out there with my posse of Japanese jail bait… maybe I have to start making more trips now that I know that there is bourbon to be had.

  14. [re=10469]ElectricZen[/re]: Gee Mark, I wonder why it was that the Clinton campaign “found itself without adequate money at the beginning of 2008”. Perchance because everyone was giving to the rival campaign whose message they like better?

  15. Well, the video is “no longer available”. I’m sure my friends
    in FL who believe Obama might blow up the White House will have
    a copy. The “racist Michelle” meme would probably go viral via
    email if not for the mailboxes stuffed with 7 guardian angels
    being forwarded to 10 friends X 10 friends X 10 friends…

  16. [re=10469]ElectricZen[/re]:
    I know it’s OT, but Penn should be forced to play every interminable moment of the campaign (that he mis-engineered) over and over in his head until Forevermore!

  17. I’ve been rickrolled so many times that I’ve passed the point of no return: I unironically love the song now. I have it on my iPod! I click on Youtube links hoping to hear Rick Astley’s sonorous voice! Something is wrong with me.

  18. [re=10479]Magsbe[/re]: I think it’s a variant of Stockholm Syndrome — a transference of affection for your oppressor. Exactly the opposite of the feelings that Michelle Obama has developed for Whitey.

  19. why are some of you indented (graceless, reverendgreen) on my comments page? is this a mark of your specialness and possbily i am jealous…

    also does it hurt?

  20. I thought Michelle was darker than that…

    [re=10482]ladymacbeth[/re]: I noticed that too. it’s because their avatars are blank.

  21. That’s one of the best rickrolls I’ve seen.

    [re=10469]ElectricZen[/re]: He forgot “I also didn’t understand how delegates are apportioned.”

  22. [re=10469]ElectricZen[/re]: What a load of load. From Penn’s explanation O just ran a better campaign? Has nothing to do with message or Hilz utterly and confoundedly contradictory behavior. So energizing the bitters earlier would have helped, and having more money would have helped? Sorry, but I suspect most are sick of the bitters. What is a word for bitters plus? Physical hostility? And more $? Meh. And going after O directly? More meh: where’s the behavior where we see her acting like a person? Not just posturing or drinking Crown Royal. LIke Bill it looked like they were just having fun “doing campaign.” Meh-meh-meh.

    The last 2/3 of Hilz speech was like the statesperson I thought she was. Why did that persona go hiding? Why did Bill become WC Fields? All that morphing is scary stuff. Penn should call up JImmyCarter to see if some spots at Habitat are open or go work in an inner city school. You can’t govern without knowing people. Hilz wanted my support, as if when I gave it she’d give me something in return, quid pro quo. Like a business deal. With a limited message what came across was wanting to win by divine right. O has engaged my conscience to participate in social action. Last time I heard that was a relevant way of doing democracy.

  23. There’s funny. There’s stupid. That wasn’t funny.

    I guess we have to give Wonkette a pass given the drunken delirium that they — and I hope everyone else here — is experiencing after Hillary’s “gracious” armistice declaration. But otherwise, this was just lazy.

  24. [re=10483]Inadequate Blackmail[/re]: You obviously are not a member of the oppressed White race, and so you do not understand how the “W” word reminds us of our oppression and the pain it causes. Why, do you know that just 40 years ago, it wasn’t unusual for Whites to have to use different restrooms, water fountains and to ride in the front of the bus?

    Thank God patriotic Conservative white men like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly (who is still waiting for evidence so he can lynch Michelle Obama) are willing to stand up for those of us who have suffered by being made to be less of a person as soon as the “W” word is thrown around.

  25. “Whitey” is totally acceptable to everyone. I haven’t seen any news of Hill having missspoke(d) yesterday, so I think this is a good sign.

  26. I sent this video to every hillary supporter and staffer I knew. None were happy, but I think one sent it higher up the food chain.

  27. [re=10479]Magsbe[/re]: [re=10484]Barrett808[/re]:

    I have a confession, y’all. This was the first time in my adult life I’d ever been Rickrolled. Completely true. I knew what the phenomenon was, but I’d never experienced it.

    …and I do think that chorus is super-catchy…

  28. 1. Do truly luvs the video’s background of the broken, purple varicose veins of Hiltard bitterette Nazi-fembots. “Never give up, never give in, bite me.”
    2. Roget’s Thesaurus (Street Parlance Edition) says the term “whitey” includes “mulatto”. Therefore, no harm, no foul, no weary tears?
    3. The photo looks like Condi with a double strand of democrat (small “d”) molars, given our gap-tooth, antiquarian Soviet expert by the Archduke of Saudi Arabiastan, her next employer.

    A song, a dance, a smile.

  29. Ok, now I’m just really confused. Her anti-white vitriolic screed still managed to confine the jolly gay dancing black dude to BEHIND the bar. What does this mean? Is Michelle Obama both a racist AND a racist, or is she merely a racist who also hates jazz hands?

  30. [re=10596]S.Luggo[/re]: So, your saying that it is possible that Michelle was using a term of affection for her Husband? “He might be a Whitey, but I love him,” kind of thing?

  31. [re=10441]Lascauxcaveman[/re]:

    ah, you must be in beddy-bye land now… Wash. State good… ferries good… hum, …. ah Vancouver, better, and San Juan Islands, OOOO better–

    [re=10628]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]:

    Sorry, Michelle, but in the Old South, Obama wouldn’t even count for a “high” or “quadroon” — white grandmother notwithstanding — and you can thank the Confederates! who are Definitely from Brits … who else would quantify, in measurable quarters or sixteenths or whatever, what your ancestry is/was??!! Who would f***king care but the damn Brits??!!

    Disclaimer: Belately to the US, I am 2/3 Irish, 1/3 English…. sigh, … still I find herself rising up w/a “BRITS OUT!!!” cry on occasion…. sorry.
