Stephen Colbert on Super PAC Mania

With more than 320 super PACs registered with the FEC at last count, Stephen Colbert can’t help but feel as if “everyone’s riding [his] wallet-tails.” Case in point: Obama recently revised his stance on super PACs as his re-election campaign begins to seek donations, saying that he still believes the Citizens United decision is wrong but that it’s hard to “disarm unilaterally.” “No matter how morally wrong you believe a system is, you have to use it to defeat it,” Colbert mock-intoned. “It’s like how Lincoln won the Civil War by buying a bunch of slaves.” Watch the hilarious clip below.
