Suspects for who created these parodies go across a broad political spectrum. AP notes that with the inclusion of “Labor”, it’s probably not a leftist group. The Kaptain Korn part seems rather anathema to the left, as they’re big fans of ethanol to fight against Manbearpig, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough.

Maybe Reason or Gillespie, maybe Malkin, maybe Gutfeld or TV’s Andy Levy. Or maybe it’s Ariana Huffington and her creative team just got a little overboard.
I’m gonna go with a long shot and suspect that after a few crazy commercials years ago leading to a slow, subtle return to social media with a new team, this could be Herman Cain.
