latest political parody of a song

Call Your Zeyde. Though they haven't fared well in court, people keep making these.  Could it be because ordinary communication on the issues of the day is often most naturally and memorably expressed using popular culture, regardless of the supposed satire/parody divide that neither comports with our literary traditions nor respects Justice Souter's footnote in Acuff-Rose refusing to kick "satire" out of fair use protections?  Ahem.
