All of us at ColoLines were glued to our computers Friday as we watched [Sen. Bernie Sanders' incredible, eight-hour truth telling session](http://colorlines.com/archives/2010/12/todays_love_is_for_bernie_sanders...) on the Senate floor. He was nominally taking on the Obama-McConnell tax cut deal. But Sanders' speech was actually an essential, clear-eyed dissection of the remarkably unjust--and thus unsustainable--economy we have built over the past two decades. Josh Harkinson at Mother Jones offered some of his own [greatest excerpts](http://m.motherjones.com/mojo/2010/12/bernie-sanders-filibuster) this weekend. But the video above, which began making the Web rounds before the speech was even over, is one of my favorites. In it, Sanders goes to what I believe to be the heart of the matter: the disease of greed. Got a favorite excerpt of your own? Shout it out in the comments.
