'The Daily Show' skewers bill in 'School House Rock' homage

John_Oliver.jpg "The Daily Show" correspondent John Oliver took to the show July 28 to "celebrate" the one-year anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act.

In an ode to "School House Rock," the animated musical shorts which first aired in the 1970s and later became an off-Broadway musical, Oliver dressed as a trampled, stabbed and mangled bill.

This video should be required viewing for anyone inside The Beltway. Or outside The Beltway. Or, for that matter, if you have a credit card, a loan or checking account. Oh heck. If you have a wallet, watch this.

And nice moves Oliver. Are you looking for a gig on the Great White Way?
