OK, call me partisan, but this video is so hilarious it's destined to go instantly viral - it's already at about 60,000 views on YouTube — and it's too much fun not to share. Produced by Health Care For America, it features Jack Black as a professional "mis-informant" who pretends to be a child and spreads lies about health care reform around an elementary school.

How often does this happen? You can actually watch a political argument about health care reform with your kids. I was viewing "The Mis-Informant" before breakfast this morning, and my first-grader and third-grader made me play it again — for reasons that will become obvious. And the video is not just hot here at CommonHealth; even politico.com is writing about it today...

This program aired on October 13, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
