MoveOn reaches new levels of ‘Huh?’

MoveOn has assembled a rap video to support an obscure potential nominee to head an obscure agency buried within a voluminous Wall Street regulation bill which almost nobody understands and which deals with an issue (Wall Street/Banks) that roughly 2 percent of Americans believe to be the most pressing economic issue facing the country today.

Click through to the email, and you can send this message to the White House:

Fell the populist rage! Look out, President Obama: Appoint anyone else, and the very stones will cry out.
