Stephen Colbert Mocks Mitt Romney: Corporations Are People; They're Like Members of Your Family!

On last night's Report, Stephen Colbert took on Mitt Romney's already infamous quip that "corporations are people, my friend." Corporate personhood is a concept Colbert's conservative persona has been pushing for years now, and last night he kept at it. "Yes, corporations are people, my friend," he said. "They're like members of your family -- your Brother, fax machine, your Uncle Ben, your Aunt Annie!"

That, plus a deep-fried Ron Paul, in the segment below:
