• Stephen Colbert announces Super PAC television commercial; will be “chock-full of messages”

    If you’re not a member of Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC, you best fix that now. The organization recently fired off the first newsletter to all members who are “the heroes with the balls” to join up and fight the good fight.

    What’s the PAC up to? According to the newsletter, they’ll be releasing their very first television commercial, a 30-second spot “chock-full of other messages” beyond the message that his Super PAC can afford a television commercial. To keep sending those messages, though, Colbert’s asking for our support – the “kind of support that is green and worth money.” As we explained a few weeks ago when the government approved Colbert’s proposal: Super PACs are a new form of political action committee that can raise – and spend – unlimited cash from any person or organization. Colbert, the self-professed “dictator of life” writes in his newsletter:

    But we have to act now, or this promising drama will go the way of my other great ideas for shows, from “Wolf Attack: The Sitcom” to “Frasier 2.” Colbert Super PAC needs YOUR support to make America great again, and I think we both know I’m talking about the kind of support that is green and worth money, because it is money, or an emerald. Both are acceptable.
