Next New Networks' Barely Political Riffs on Obama Girl

By Published on .

Just because you haven't heard much from him this election season, doesn't mean perennial political candidate Ralph Nader has gone away. In fact, he's been quite busy running his campaign from a cramped office alongside Obama Girl, the "Barely Political" Web star who rose to Internet fame with her "I've Got a Crush on Obama" video. In the sitcom-style "Obama Girl and Ralph Nader Show" (note who gets top billing) the pair trade tips on campaigning. In a preview for the next episode, Obama Girl gets ready to dish about her crush on Obama. Part of the Next New Networks stable of Web content, the broadband channel "Barely Political," created the video. It landed on YouTube and other sites on Sept. 25 and had amassed more than 159,000 views on YouTube by Oct. 6. "Barely Political" is on track to deliver more than 13 million views in total this month for all its videos.
