Debt Ceiling Crisis Gets The Sad Animated Music Video It Deserves (VIDEO)

In the midst of all the posturing, debating, saber-rattling and mud-slinging that Washington, DC is doing over the debt crisis, waits the American people, wondering what the hell is going on and how it will all end. Today's good news (i.e. bad news) is that a deal has been reached that will make no one happy.

If you're like us, you've been on the sidelines feeling completely powerless, wondering why in the world partisan politics can't be back-burnered in favor of solving real problems. You may have even thought to yourself, "Just once... can't we find a way to finally make it right?"

You weren't alone. Someone who has no respect for the finer nuances of Flash had the exact same idea. This purposefully bad animated short perfectly sums up the way we feel, and is oddly cathartic.
