Yid Vid: She’s Got a Crush on Ann Coulter

Leah Kauffman, the singer-songwriter behind the “Obama Girl” video, has a new crush: Ann Coulter. Two differences between her “Obama Girl” video and her latest work: This time around, rather than using a lip-syncing model, Kaufman’s in front of the camera and she’s clearly only tongue-in-cheek in her affection for Coulter (a la Andy Samberg’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad love song).

Actually, the video is pretty biting. Kauffman did her people proud. (The Jewish Telegraphic Agency has a nice interview.)

Oy, love the comment about our WWII enemies. Maybe your dad can throw in his epithets too.

For those of us who have nothing but contempt for Ann Coulter and her bilge, this video is utterly hilarious, and in my opinion, the best way to counter her and her ilk. Congratulations to Leah Kauffman--this is great!
