If you want to know where things are headed in the viral world of politics, forget about the McCain camp's offensive against Mitt Romney's conveniently timed "epiphany" on the sanctity of human life, and read the latest piece from ABC News' Jake Tapper on the risqué music video featuring a "nubile" young woman who "breathlessly" sings her love for Barack Obama.

"'Hey, 'B,' it's me,' a woman who calls herself 'Obamagirl' murmurs amorously into a phone at the beginning of the slow jam. 'If you're there, pick up. I was just watching you on C-SPAN.'"
"As much as the news may break the hearts of thousands of Democratic men," writes Tapper, "Obamagirl, in reality, is not the pulchritudinous callipygian who riffs on policy with Akon-esque beats, singing "you're into border security/let's break this border between you and me/universal health care reform/it makes me warm.'"
"Rather, she is a fictitious creation."
The Obama supporters who created the web video say that they had no contact with the Obama campaign.
