President Obama As Comic Opera

Imagine President Obama as filtered through Gilbert and Sullivan and you get the premise of this satirical and entertaining video.

It retools The Pirates of Penzance's famous, tongue-twisting, lung-exhausting song:  "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General," transforming it into "I Am the Very Model of a Modern U.S. President." Enjoy, or not.


H/T to Andrew Sullivan.
