Black president, check – woman in the white house, next

Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow whips out some feisty cowgirl spunk on her tongue-in-cheek political ad, “Woman in the White House.” Whether she’s being serious or not, the uptempo country tune offers up a giddy-up of jolly chuckles. “It’s time to clean out Capitol Hill/with a shovel and a pair of high heels.” And she’s got plenty of reasons for a ‘Mother Knows Best’ takeover. Without reciting Aretha and Annie’s “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves,” Crow points out that “we balance our check books,” “a lot more loving/And listening and getting along.” Plus, there’ll be less fighting. We seriously doubt they’ll be less fighting. Catfights still reign notoriously on Jerry Springer.

Don’t expect this to be adopted as some official anthem for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, or for this to win a Grammy nod. But you can count on the Creedence Clearwater Revival soul and Crow’s penmanship to provide three minutes of good-humored entertainment.
