When I first heard Barack Obama's "Yes we can!" slogan, all I could think was
Bob the Builder: Can we do it?"But this video gave it a whole 'nother connotation for me. Funny what a little music and rhythm can do.
Scoop, Muck, Dizzy, Roley, and the ever-whiney Lofty: "Yes we CAN!"
Actually, the video suggests that part of what's so compelling about Obama as a rhetorician is that you can, in fact, lay a rhythm track under him and dance to it.
Yep, I'm getting soft and sentimental in my old age, falling for this claptrap about hope and change. But watch it anyway, and get foolish and dewy-eyed with me.
