Kristin Chenoweth Parodies Anthony Weiner

Kristin Chenoweth is Perfect

Kristin Chenoweth kills two birds with one stone by singing the (to some ears annoying) tune "Popular" from the musical "Wicked" as a parody of Anthony Weiner. She has the perfect chops for this, with all the Broadway mannerisms and inflections down pat. You may have to be into the theater scene to really appreciate this, or at least up on New York City political dirt.

As background, Kristin performed the leading role of Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, in "Wicked" on Broadway in 2003-2004 before leaving to star in "The West Wing" on television. She was nominated for a Tony Award for the role, and, to the extent that she has one, it is her trademark role.
