Heard on the Hill

Musical Feelings

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann must be really missing the campaign trail this week. The former GOP presidential candidate today denied "recent rumors" that she would be joining the cast of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." “In full disclosure, I did win a polka dancing competition when I was in the tenth grade at my alma mater, Anoka High School in Anoka, Minn.," the Congresswoman said in a statement. "But, despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false." The statement was a wee bit strange because most people hadn't heard the rumors in the first place. But perhaps Bachmann spoke out because she wanted a piece of all the musical fun happening on the presidential campaign trail today! Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine endorsed  GOP presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Here is one verse from one of Mustaine's most famous tracks, "Symphony of Destruction": "The earth starts to rumble/World powers fall/A'warring from the heavens/A peaceful man stands tall/Tall." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtPQ_QJpFIU Another musical number making the rounds this week is the new music video "Glease" featuring Obama Girl and Alphacat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLDvv7S5qMA&feature=relmfu The two Internet sensations mock President Barack Obama through a mash-up of the musical "Grease" and the Fox television show "Glee." This cover of "You're the One that I Want" marks the debut of the new YouTube channel, Polipop.
