(Newser) – The quirkiest presidential candidate has found a new platform—a drop-dead funny video spot with Web fave Obama Girl, writes AOL blogger Liza Porteus Viana. Libertarian Mike Gravel does the Soulja Boy dance in an attempt to sway the famous Barack booster. “You should drop your crush on Obama," sings Gravel, 77, who should probably keep his day job. Alas, he fails to win her over.
