23/50

"I'm dreaming of a white president," Newman sings like a mush-mouthed Bing Crosby. Judging from the YouTube comments, lots of folks didn't get the joke. It's classic Newman satire in the "Short People" mold, a very funny, deceptively breezy take on a painful truth about a segment of the American electorate.
