Maybe the worst political web video ever produced in Florida…

Marco Rubio delivered a red meat speech to the South Carolina Republican Party in Columbia on Saturday, calling President Barack Obama the most “divisive figure in modern American history.” In response, the Florida Democratic Party wrote a song mocking him for his connections with Sen. Jim DeMint, who was in attendance at the dinner.

The Democratic Party’s version of Little Peggy March’s “I Will Follow Him,”  tweaks the lyrics to, “I will follow Jim.” The song accuses Rubio of pandering to DeMint and tea party Republicans. Rubio is rumored to be a possible running mate for presumed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

I just want to know which person-in-authority at the FDP saw the rough-cut of this video and said, ‘We have to get this out there!’

You watch this video and all of the losses — Jim Davis, Alex Sink, Kendrick Meek, etc. — begin to make sense.

Of course, I am still humming the line “That’s why I would not even back/the Violence Against Women Act” so maybe the ad does work.
