After yet another Anthony Weiner sex scandal, Kristen Chenoweth has decided to take over the mayoral candidate's campaign. On The Tonight Show yesterday, the singer released a parody of Wicked song "Popular," about, well, how to make Mr. Weiner popular again.

Chenoweth roasts Mr. Danger well in the song with lines like:

"I'll teach you to zip your fly, you wont be that guy, with the camera down his pants. I'll teach you what tweets to tweet, something clean and sweet, we'll make sure you get your chance to be popular. The right kind of popular. They'll think you've become a monk, though they've seen your junk ... Now lets start cause you've got an awfully long way to go. Long, well, hmm..."

Chenoweth's voice is amazing, as usual, and she sings the parody almost as well as she sang the original on Broadway back in 2003.

Hopefully Mr. Weiner will get the hint, if he hasn't already.

As Glinda said — "You wanna be the mayor, stop acting like a big old whore."
