On last night's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert did a great segment mercilessly satirizing a plan hatched by former Tea Party Express chairman Mark Williams to infiltrate the union workers who are protesting in Wisconsin and other states, with the goal of getting himself on TV so he can say embarrassing things to tarnish the movement.

Colbert showed some clips of the pro-union protesters being incredibly level-headed, noting that "These protesters keep throwing us off with this charade of Midwestern reasonableness." He went on: "Since they refuse to live up to our stereotypes, we must do it for them!" It's funny 'cause it's true. Watch the segment here:
