[YOUTUBE] Hillary mashup

The YouTube Hillary mashup made it to the front page above the fold of today's Chronicle.

Found two versions at YouTube:

Short: Vote Different (1:13)

Long: VOTE SMART: a warning to all women about hillary clinton (5:14)

Obama's campaign sez they had nothing to do with it. Others are pointing fingers to the same folk who brought us the Swift Boat Veterans.

Being as the presidential primaries don't kick off until the Iowa caucuses next January, it looks like it will be a very interesting tit-for-tat election this time around.

Update: Above the fold, front page, SFChronicle today (20 Mar 2007) as well, with a buzz buzz article about who might have mashed it and why. A Rove device to slam Hillary and catch Obama in the crossfire with one swat?

Have you watched both videos? I think the short one is more effective. The long one just goes on and on and on, well past my patience. I believe the long one is a revamp of the short one. Who co-opted the short video? Wonder what the original masher thinks of that?

Update2: Archer has a link to a Barack 1984 video. As I commented there, Too bad the Clinton supporters are so lacking in originality. They're ripping off a mashup, for pete's sake. Do your own clever thing, peoples. This just looks petty. And stoopid.
