Remember those cheesy beer commercials where a bunch of guys are sitting around looking generally depressed and unpleasant to be around, and then they crack open a cold one and suddenly gorgeous women in bikins actually care who they are, the weather is amazing and swords are turned into plowshares? Wouldn't it be nice if real life was like that? Also, wouldn't it be nice if politics was like that?

Below, a video that shows a world where that dream comes true, and Democrats finally find a way to pass healthcare reform. (Hat-tip to TPMtv.)
