Three Months of Celebs for Obama

It's been a rough day for Dave Eggers (given the arrest of his Zeitoun hero in a murder plot) but here's some sunnier Mcsweeney's news: It has launched a Web site devoted to providing 90 essays by 90 celebs over 90 days, all backing Obama for re-election.  The only two to appear so far:  Roger Ebert and Ben Gibbard.  But coming are Arcade Fire's Win Butler, Judd Apatow,  John Hodgman, Carrie Brownstein and, what seven dozen others?  Since this is a kind of "Intervention," here's one of our  favorite songs and  videos, as Arcade Fire meets Eisenstein.  The king's taking back his throne???
