WASHINGTON—“C’est Moi! Barack,” so went a ribbing of White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) at the 123rd annual dinner of The Gridiron Club on Saturday night where he was gently mocked to a tune from “Camelot.” “I know—may I say—how well I think of me. As so, J.F.K. I shall be!’’
The Gridiron lyrics…..
(to the tune of “C’est Moi,” from “Camelot,” Music by Frederick Lowe, Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner)
Obama, dressed like a knight in shiny armor
As just a lad I heard the call.
And aren’t you glad I’ll give my all?
I know—may I say—how well I think of me
As so, J.F.K. I shall be!

A man who is peddling hope must have audacity!
Bring style where a grasping feminist won’t do.
Climb a wall no else can climb;
Slay a Clinton in record time;
Be a man who can make a fairy tale come true!
No matter how slippery his generality,
Some vaporous dreams should be his daily fare!
But where in the world,
Is there in the world,
A man so extraordinaire?
C’est moi! Barack!
A hottie mais non?
I’m far too noble too lie!
The one guy who
Stands out—in my view,
C’est moi, Barack! ‘Tis I.
I’d never stray from what I believe
My incredible life—it’s all true.
‘Tis I can make the elephants grieve,
Can turn red states to blue.
C’est moi, Barack.
I’m really fired up
A new Prometheus! (with spouse)
And here I stand, specifics, untold.
Incredibly clean, articulate-bold!
To bring ME to the White House.
