You Know We’re in Trouble When…

…only a comedian is seriously taking on the US Supreme Court’s insanely stupid, ill-informed, utopian, and vile Citizens United decision. Well, maybe not so much if the comedian is the savagely funny Stephen Colbert.

It today’s Slate, Dahlia Lithwick reviews how Colbert has courageously and brilliantly exposed the decision for exactly what it is (a corporate conservative’s wet dream) and the justices for exactly what they are (political rubes completely out of touch with reality).

Read Lithwick’s piece and thank your lucky stars Colbert has our backs.
