Uniting Against Citizens United

Our own Stephen Colbert can't get his name on the Republican primary ballot in South Carolina.  So he is urging all voters in South Carolina (of any or no party), to vote on Saturday for Herman Cain, who is on the ballot, but who is no longer running.

By this act, we are voting to turn the Supremes' Citizen United ruling on its head.

Which is right where Colbert's former superpac, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, now controlled by Jon Stewart, wants it.

In this bizarre legislative and judiciary climate, it may be that voting for Herman Cain on Saturday is the most important act of protest in our arsenal.
