Ever wonder why we’re still talking about the stalled effort to reform Wall Street, more than a year after President Obama signed a law to do exactly that? Or why there’s even a controversy over who will lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, even though the measure creating the new watchdog agency passed by overwhelming margins in both the House and the Senate?

Here’s a pretty good explanation why. This Daily Show segment does a great job explaining how we found ourselves in this sorry state, complete with rhyme and song. Oh, and hastily-made costumes!
