Jibjab: parody or no?

According to CNN's Publisher peeved at political parody, the owners of the copyright for Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" are a bit miffed at the boys over at Jibjab, who created a flash funny that pokes fun at both presidential hopefuls. The creators, on the other hand, claim parody, and therefore exemption under fair use. While I think the bit is quite funny, and is clearly a satirical portrayal of Bush, Kerry, and other politicians, I would also be very interested to see how a judge would rule on this particular use of Guthrie's material.
