I’m not talking about Rob Lowe, but about the corrupting influence of money in politics. Watch the talk Lawrence Lessig recently gave at the conservative Cato Institute to learn how bad it is, and how it is likely to become much worse.

And for fun, watch Stephen Colbert’s take on it.

And finally, do something about it.
