Just when you thought our election season couldn't get any more ridiculous, the Brits step in to disabuse you of that notion:

Having set alight the race for the White House, Senator Barack Obama is about to work his magic on the London stage.

Written and produced by the Ohio-born Teddy Hayes, The Obama Musical focuses on the personalities behind the Democratic candidate's campaign.

Songs in the show, due to receive its premiere at Barons Court Theatre next month, include Obama and Me, which is sung by an obsessive member of his team and includes the lyric: "We are a pair/like chocolate and éclair".

Please.  Please.  Please let the McCain team hammer home the fact that Obama is the subject of a musical theater production (which includes a song sung by "an obsessive member of his team") in a foreign country. Because I'm pretty sure that doesn't help Michelle's kids. Especially in states like Ohio and Michigan.
