Thanks to Jon Stewart for inviting former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer onto his show to discuss his bid for the presidency (bet you didn't know he was running... imagine that). That gave Roemer the platform he needed to launch an epic anti-corporate rant that would make Matt Taibbi and Eric Schneiderman proud.
Of course, as Stewart pointed out, Roemer's view isn't likely to gain any real traction given the current state of affairs in American politics, but it's still nice to see somebody out there calling a spade a spade.
This week's QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"You can't tackle the jobs problem, the budget problem, the tax problem, or America rising without tackling the first problem, money in politics... Corporations have never made more money than they are right now, they wrote the tax code, and they really don't give a damn about the rest of America."
- Republican Presidential candidate Buddy Roemer
