Classic: Conan O'Brien and Robert Reich Lay Down the Law (VIDEO)

Ok, two wars, a flailing economy, rampant financial fraud and an oozing oil slick covering the Gulf. Times are tough and things are hairy, so what better way to solve our myriad problems then by turning to our best and brightest (or toughest and tallest) for help?

Clearly I'm talking about comedian and late-night talk show host Conan O'Brien and Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich.

I say bring these two old warhorses out of the retirement stable and turn them loose on our troubled streets. Conniving bankers? BAM. Lax regulators? BOOM. Environmental destruction? Em...shoot that too.
