By now, you've probably seen "Gangnam Style." It's so popular, your grandma is probably dancing to it right now even though her doctors told her she needs to give up dancing.
How do I know it's reached maximum overexposure? Because people from both sides of the YouTube aisle have made Gangnam parodies attacking and supporting Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Wherever you lie on the political spectrum, you have to admit that this next video doesn't become truly amazing until Joe Biden shows up…
That video forgot to mention the one thing Obama and Psy actually have in common: They both weren't born in America.
This next one features Bill Clinton strutting with the Gangnam ladies. If you don't love it, you should leave America…

It's always strange when failed presidential candidates appear on late night talk shows and act like it's some sort of hilarious sitcom reunion. And it's even weirder when that politician fueled his campaign by exploiting the bigotry and ignorance of the GOP base.
Hey, remember that time I actively advocated for discriminating against gays? Ha. Remember when I based my whole campaign on limiting women's access to health care? Good times, good times.
Behold the laugh riot that is Rick Santorum's appearance on the Tonight Show…
At one point during the interview, Leno jokingly suggests that "the worst thing ever" for Santorum would be a gay couple smoking with contraceptives. Rick Santorum throws up his arms in mock disgust, saying "Oh my God. Heaven forbid!" Hahaha, what a jokester! He thinks gays and condoms are evil! He was almost president. LOL.
Santorum also gave Leno one of his trademark sweater vests as a wacky souvenir from the campaign trail. But Leno probably won't wear it. It's not biker denim.
Rick Santorum may not have won the nomination, but he did achieve one major accomplishment last night. He made Jay Leno seem likable.

If Barack Obama could hang out in front of every Wal-Mart in the America, or spend all his time talking to people waiting in line to see Real Steel or Dolphin Tale, or stuff a McRib sandwich into his face at every service stop between D.C. and L.A., in an effort to get his message out there and try to convince regular Americans he's the same intellectually pragmatic and politically effective guy we all thought he was three years ago, I'm sure he would. But he can't. That's just not physically possible.
So, last night, he did the next best thing…
Not a bad job. But would it have killed him to bring out a couple McRibs?
