“I keep hearing about this sense of entitlement. Quebec students have a sense of entitlement. Public sector workers have a sense of entitlement. Unions have a sense of entitlement. But I never hear anyone talk about the sense of entitlement of the bankers who believe they are entitled to create financial policies that squeeze every last penny out of ordinary people who are now forced to use their “services”. What about CEOs who believe they are entitled to their multi-million dollar bonuses even as they run their companies into the ground and steal their employees benefits and pensions. How about the politicians who believe they are entitled to their fat salaries and pensions for enacting legislation that hurts the vast majority of society for the benefit of the 1%. I say fuck the bankers and bosses. It is time to end their era of entitlement and put the economy into the hands of the people, because yes, I think the population as a whole is entitled to plan the economy for the benefit of all.”

Colbert at the TIME 100

Of course, all of us should be honored to be listed on the TIME 100 alongside the two men who will be slugging it out in the fall:  President Obama, and the man who would defeat him, David Koch.
Give it up everybody.  David Koch.
Little known fact — David, nice to see you again, sir.
Little known fact, David’s brother Charles Koch is actually even more influential.  Charles pledged $40 million to defeat President Obama, David only $20 million.  That’s kind of cheap, Dave.
Sure, he’s all for buying the elections, but when the bill for democracy comes up, Dave’s always in the men’s room.  I’m sorry, I must have left Wisconsin in my other coat.
I was particularly excited to meet David Koch earlier tonight because I have a Super PAC, Colbert Super PAC, and I am — thank you, thank you — and I am happy to announce Mr. Koch has pledged $5 million to my Super PAC.  And the great thing is, thanks to federal election law, there’s no way for you to ever know whether that’s a joke.
By the way, if David Koch likes his waiter tonight, he will be your next congressman.

Colbert went totally Colbert on his fellow TIME 100 honorees the other night. Read the full speech here. You’ll be glad you did.

Any economic system that legitimizes greed is, at its core, morally bankrupt.
