Every presidential election year Family Circle magazine runs a cookie recipe contest between the two possible First Ladies. The winner of the contest for the past four elections has gone on to be (or continued to be) the First Lady. This year, Cindy McCain's Oatmeal-Butterscotch cookies beat out Michelle Obama's shortbread cookies. A cookie contest for our First Lady? Archaic? Ridiculous? Well then, how 'bout a dance-off between the candidates themselves? This virtual throwdown between John McCain and Barack Obama should at least take your mind off the 1950s flashback with a little bit of crumpin', twirling and fancy footwork.
Obama kicks it off with a challenge to his opponent:
Obama: Can I kick your old Republican ass?
Obama and Dance Crew: Yes, we can!
After Obama shakes his tailfeather for a bit, the face-off begins.
McCain: You're pretty good for a Democrat, but I don't believe you've heard my new campaign slogan: Crumpin' you can believe in. My friends, it's on!
Stay tuned for a special guest appearance by Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, but if the First Lady cookie contest offends, avoid the last few seconds of the video. Unless you think McCain might be talking about "tapping" Palin to be his a vice-presidential candidate. Nothing but awkward unlike the rest of the moves in this clip.
