Yes, we can - but you're not going to like it much.

Many of you will have seen the video released last week by Will.i.am of the hugely successful hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas, which combines a particularly inspiring speech by Senator Barack Obama with music and a repeated refrain of "Yes, we can!". A number of big stars (never mind - the kids know who they are) lent their faces and voices to the video and it's become a huge viral success, with millions of people viewing it on YouTube.



Now, some wag has created a hilarious spoof of the video which imagines a similar effort as built upon the words of Senator John McCain instead.



(I remember Husband, annoyed, saying that he was surprised that McCain hadn't gotten spanked harder for his "Bomb Iran" 'joke'. I hope he'll be happy to see that nobody's forgotten that half-joke from a very hawkish hawk and it looks like it'll have legs through the campaign.)

And you're right - that girl signing ASL is signing exactly what you think she's signing.
