If you want to destroy Charlie Rangel's sweater, why not bring venerable alt-rockers Weezer into the orbit of the 'Auto-Tune The News' crew, and let loose?

In a neat bit of synergy, timed with tomorrow's release of Hurley, Weezer's eighth studio album, Rivers Cuomo and company lay down a facile bit of power-pop so that Auto Tune The News can poke fun of recent history's most emo moments -- Charlie Rangel's epic "Song Of My Self-Defense," Anthony Weiner's House floor anger aria, and President Barack Obama's car-keys-ditch metaphor for American life.
