G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S, yeah
We flyin' first class up in the sky
all the champagne livin' the life
In the fast lane and I won't change
By the glamorous, ooh, the flossy, flossy

—Lyrics to "Glamorous," by Fergie

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's prolific travel on private jets has inspired a sleek Perry campaign web video, edited to a well-known tune by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas. (Don't know if Fergie is going to take issue with her song being used for a campaign purpose.) Watch for yourself:

The Hutchison campaign isn't shying away from the subject of posh lifestyles of busy politicians. They're pointing back at Rick Perry, who does plenty of jetsetting, too. His trips to Las Vegas, New York and Jerusalem in recent years has also made headlines.
