Caught On Tape! The GOP's Plot to Stall Congress [VIDEO]

Who's killing bills on stem cell research? Who's keeping the filibuster against Iraq withdrawal alive? Why it's Rovemort (played in this video by Seinfeld's Jason Alexander) an evil little caped creature who works for the Republican Party. Rovemort chants "no progress in Congress" and makes courtesy calls to the likes of Mitch McConnell and Brit Hume. He lives to keep the Democratic congress from doing good.

This video premiered at the Yearly Kos convention and was posted on Campaign for America's Future website shortly thereafter. It was made by Julie Bergman Sender, who was also behind the great Will Ferrell ACT video from a few years back. The video is part of a new online campaign, enlisting voters to put grassroots pressure on conservative obstructionists Check out the video to your right for more.
