Florida Republican Sen. 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, Florida Democrats 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.
Fair warning, the video is very silly:
