Obama Now Has Perfect Pitch For Health Overhaul

We don't own an iPhone and only recently stumbled across the Auto-Tune phenomenon and its princely practitioner T-Pain.

But we know a funny health video when we see one. So late last night, if you were already snoozing, lying stunned by David Letterman's disclosure of an extortion plot against him or gripped by the debate over Sen. Max Baucus's health bill, you missed a great bit on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

On a Kimmel dare, the musician T-Pain used his eponymous iPhone app "I Am T-Pain" to remix highlights from President Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress and some other clips for musical comic effect. Maybe the president should have thought of this himself.
