Hey, Paul Krugman, Where Are You? 

Here's a video in honor of this week's Money Issue of Seven Days, which hits the racks tomorrow. It's from prolific singer-songwriter Jonathan Mann, who posts a new music video to YouTube every day. Every day. Which might explain why his choruses aren't catchier.

Today's song is about Jerry Springer. There was one a week ago about saving newspapers. In this one from March 17, Mann asks why the Nobel-Prize winning economist Paul Krugman isn't involved in the Obama administration in some way. Here's an excerpt:

Timothy Geithner is like some little weasel.
And wasn't he in a position of power when all this shit went down in the first place?
When I listen to you, things seem to make sense.
When I listen to him, all I hear is BLAH BLAH BLAH.
Hey Paul Krugman, where the hell are ya man?
Cause we need you on the front lines, not just writin' for the New York Times.

As of this morning, the video containing this timely little tune had been viewed more than 155,000 times on YouTube.

Thanks, Judith, for the tip.
