Is this cheesy? You bet. One doesn’t normally see frog sock-puppets in political commercials doing sing-alongs about the virtues of reading. Then again, one doesn’t usually see an outbreak of illiteracy at the highest levels of government.

How hard is it for a bunch of lawyers to read a law before commenting on it? In the Obama administration, apparently … impossible. And that makes this a very sad little froggy.
