Political Pranksters: Billionaires for Wealthcare on the Rachel Maddow Show

On Monday night, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show did a feature on "Billionaires for Wealthcare", a small group of pranksters who crashed Glen Beck's 9/12 protest in Washington DC this past weekend.

Their slogans include Let them eat Advil and Let's save the status quo!, and they wore tuxedos, drank champagne, and smoked cigars. And they put it all together with a song that they set to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic
