Justice Scalia (2nd from right) is drooling at the chance to legislate from the bench.

This is the greatest thing to happen to democracy in the 21st Century: 11 minutes of mostly silent footage of dogs dressed up in justice's robes sitting on a set designed to look like the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver created this footage, and they explain why in this short clip:

They don't allow cameras inside the Court, you see, which is why we've never seen a Supreme Court case on cable news. Justices like it this way, since they get left out somewhat from the craziness of the news cycle, but average citizens don't get to see what really goes on in the highest reaches of the Judicial Branch of government.
