rmort.jpgBorrowing from Harry Potter, this video parody titled “Rovemort And The Sorcerer’s Stonewall” and starring Jason Alexander was released today by the Campaign For America’s Future. I wish I could say it was clever or fun, but it’s so heavy-handed about Rush Limbaugh, Brit Hume, Trent Lott, Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Dubya that even a liberal like me finds it off-putting. (Surely Hollywood can help progressives put together more subtle and arresting footage than this!) The video is part of a national campaign to “expose the right’s strategy of obstructing reform while attacking the ‘do-nothing [Democrat-controlled] Congress’”, timed to the YearlyKos conference in Chicago, and legislators on Capitol Hill preparing to return to their districts for the summer recess.
