Stephen Colbert: "If corporations are people, then I'm a people person."

Yesterday, the Stephen Colbert Rock Me Like a Herman Cain Rally took place, and between Colbert's speech and Hermie Cain's usual bizarritude and embarrassing singing, there were a lot of memorable moments.

If only Colbert were really running, the stump speeches alone would end up as HBO specials.

Via the L.A. Times:

"If corporations are people, then I'm a people person," Colbert, in full blowhard character, said, hailing himself as a kind of MLK of "corporate civil rights": "The Lockheed Martin Luther Burger King, if you will." ... "Whoever said you can't go home again did not have access to a private jet," Colbert said before introducing Cain as "The Mad Max of the flat tax."
