Comic relief: Hope: the Musical

A year ago, Hope: the Musical was hitting Germany. According to Speigel:
The plot charts Obama’s political career and simultanously follows a group of residents in an apartment-sharing community, showing how they all become infected by Obama’s message of change.
Too bad the show didn't make it to the U.S. to provide some comic fodder. These clips of the original version are worth their weight in gold (even at today's prices) for their comedic value - which comes from the contrast of what Obama promised to what he actually brought us. And how about checking out the Kenyan version? Easy for them to celebrate him - they didn't have to deal with his policies.
