Obama's Oil Spill Response Bashed In Music Video: 'Same As It Ever Was'

The folks at PolitiZoid have done it again, this time using the Talking Heads classic "Once in a Lifetime" to bash Obama's response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill:

"And you may ask yourself, 'Did I really vote for him?'" (lyrics and commentary follow with original Talking Heads video):

You may find yourself living in a big white house
And you may find yourself with the largest oil spill in the world
And you may find yourself blaming the last administration
And you may find yourself on a beautiful trip with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"

Chorus:

Letting the days go by, play another round of golf
Letting the days go by, crude oil is flowing in the Gulf
Will it be blue again, after the oil is gone
They'll fix it this time, blame is going all around.

And you may ask yourself, "How do I fix this?"
And you may ask yourself, "How much oil is in there anyway?"
You may tell yourself, "These are not my poll numbers!"
And you may tell yourself, "This is not my friendly press!"

Chorus.

You may ask yourself, "Where is that beautiful beach?"
You may ask yourself, "Where has Obama been?"
And you may ask yourself, "Did I really vote for him?"
And you may say to yourself, "My God, what have I done?"

Chorus.

Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was.

Letting the days go by...

As Allahpundit wrote Thursday, "Three and a half minutes of brilliance to cleanse the palate via Ann Althouse. You don't even have to watch to enjoy it; just close your eyes and savor the uncanny vocal impersonation."    

Indeed.

For those unfamiliar, this is the original from the Talking Heads in 1981: 

Letting the days go by...
