Stephen Colbert's Referendum

Stephen Colbert continues to push the envelope by trying to get his brand of satire into the political realm. Colbert loves to make fun of the "corporations are people" comment by Mitt Romney and its support by Citizens United v. FEC 130 S.Ct. 876 (2010) So he put together a referendum for South Carolina giving the people a choice to decide. 1) Corporations are people OR 2) Only people are people. Unfortunately, the South Carolina Supreme Court has quashed the referendum. So who does Stephen turn to help him appeal this decision? The Democrats!
