Obama: It's About the Future, or Hope, or Change... or Something

Guest post by Postmodern Conservative.

This YouTube video is not only a hilarious parody on Obama, it's a nice send-up of campaign-speak in general. I've taken the liberty of transcribing the narration. It's very quotable.

Man 1: I'm voting for Barrack Obama because I believe in the future.
Narrator: A vote for Obama is a vote for the future.
Man 2: Because the future is ahead of us, and the past has come before us, and the future is yet to come.
: A vote for Obama is a vote for hope.
Woman 1: I believe Obama believes in hope, and hopes for a future filled with hope.
: If you believe change can't happen if you don't do something, vote Obama.
Woman 2
: I believe that we, U.S. Americans, want change, and Obama will change things, and not leave us unchanged.
: If you believe that the future is not now, and not in the past, vote Obama.
Woman 3
: The past is, like, history, and that is so, like, yesterday.
: If you hope that there is a candidate that believes in hope, vote for Obama. If you believe that Obama believes in everything you believe in, vote for hope, vote for change, vote Obama.
