For kids, School House Rock was an effective way to teach them about very complex and nuanced concepts, especially when it come to government. However, there’s only so much that School House Rock can explain in a fun pop melody and rhyme and there’s only a limited time in your life where you rely on it for the entirety of your political efficacy.
Luckily, John Oliver and Last Week Tonight can pick up where many of us signed off during high school government and civics classes and examine the most dense subjects within our government infrastructure while also making them pretty hilarious.
That’s what Oliver did this week in picking apart the election of high ranking judges in this country. Watch it all here.
