Chicago Young Republicans to Romney Supporters: "Call Me Maybe"

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 7:03 AM

The Chicago Young Republicans face the nearly impossible task of winning Barack Obama's hometown of Chicago -- and the rest of Illinois -- for Mitt Romney this November. So what do they do when the going gets tough?

Why sing a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," of course. 'Cause, you know, everyone is doing it.

Ironically, we found the video on St. Louis blogger Jim Hoft's uber right-wing Gateway Pundit. Hoft introduced the clip by saying, simply: "Let's pray the left never finds this."

Don't worry, Jim. We're sure the Young Democrats of St. Charles are working on a similar project right this very minute.
