Time to Exploit the Children! Yeah! {Commence Dancing}

Van Jones, Obama's evicted "green jobs" advisor has come up with a video using children to try to advance the cause of statism. I'm going to let Katherine Mangu-Ward describe the video because she does a much better job than I could:

It's election season! Time to exploit children for political gain!

Today's entry: This video from Rebuild the Dream, the new organization of former Obama green jobs czar and 9/11 truther Van Jones, in which cute kids mouth bizarrely sophisticated talking points, including words and phrases they almost certainly don't understand, such as "infrastructure," "living wage," and "tax brackets."

A charming tyke with a speech impediment implores viewers to "remove the cap on the social security tax." Another gal with a ponytail wants to "close the revolving door between Washington and high priced lobbyists."

Then the grand finale: A serious child looks into the camera and says "we gotta stop letting corporations be recognized as people. We're the people, they're not!" Then all the kids say "yay!," wave American flags, and start to dance. Seriously.

Excuse me, I have to go kill myself.
