Hot for Hillary [VIDEO]

In the video to your right, another scantily clad beauty, Taryn Southern, sings a tribute to one of the 2008 presidential candidates. But instead of Barack Obama or John Edwards, this tribute song is directed at the former first lady and Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton. "H-I-L-L-A-R-Y, I know you're not gay but I'm hoping you're bi," Southern sings. I don't know if we're going to be seeing a lot more parody videos like these or if this is just a silly fad but it certainly is beyond the kind of safe, corny ads the campaigns put out on their own, which is, I guess, what makes them interesting.
