Bernie Sanders’s Political Revolution Now Includes Shooting T-Shirt Cannons With Stephen Colbert


Every minute Bernie Sanders spends not talking about income inequality is a minute he spends in physical pain, and you could almost see the relief on his face Thursday night when, during an appearance on Stephen Colbert's show, he got to take a break from discussing superdelegates to rescue a lowly production assistant from the dehumanizing oppression of the late-capitalist workplace. Sure, Sanders had to wait backstage for a bit while Colbert spun a wheel a bunch of times, but at the end of the segment he also got to shoot a T-shirt cannon — the ultimate socialist late-night gag! To each according to their needs, from each according to their ability to shoot comfortable tops out of a pneumatic tube.
