• Stephen Colbert gives nearly $800K of Super PAC funds to Hurricane Sandy relief, wounded soldiers, more

    The funds remaining in Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow – which he created to expose the inherent problems with organizations raising money for presidential candidates without having to disclose its contributions’ origins – will be donated to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, a wounded soldiers fund and, fittingly, “two pro-transparency groups who fight against the corrupting influence of outside money in politics.” Colbert made the announcement

    Nancy Pelosi claims Stephen Colbert doesn’t like kittens in new attack ad

    What does it mean when a comedian’s satirical influence rubs off so heartily on the subjects he’s satirizing that said subjects begin to satirize the real satirists? Christ, I have no idea. But I can tell you that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has entered the world of comedy. She’s just released the below faux attack ad against Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC, Creating A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow. So, what’s a

    Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart join forces for unique political maneuver (Video)

    We reported yesterday that the hilariously meddlesome Stephen Colbert was gearing up for a major announcement on The Colbert Report last night. Well, we were treated to not one, but two surprises! First, Colbert bequeathed his Super PAC to his dear friend, Jon Stewart (with whom he has no dreams of “coordinating” with). In a press release this morning, The Daily Show host commented, “I am excited to take the

    Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC will give $500,000 to fund presidential primary

    Stephen Colbert’s role in comedy is clear – dude’s a storied improviser, a former Daily Show correspondent, and host of the always wonderful Colbert Report on Comedy Central. But his role in politics is a bit murkier. After forming the Colbert Super PAC this past summer, it hasn’t been clear how he’d position himself in the 2012 presidential race. The group’s first ad asked voters to write in “Rick Parry”

    Watch Stephen Colbert’s pair of Super PAC ads and you’ll never look at corn the same way

    If the Colbert Super PAC’s official government papers weren’t enough to convince you that the organization is legit, maybe these new videos will convince you. This week, the organization released its first two TV ads, debuting with “Episode IV: A New Hope,” asking Iowans to write in “Rick Parry” for the Quadrennial Ames Iowa Straw Poll. This, of course, will probably not help Texas Governor Rick PERRY too much. So,

    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

    Stephen Colbert wins in Washington; allowed to raise unlimited funds for 2012 elections

    Stephen Colbert is no stranger to entering the political fray. He ran for president four years ago (well, only in South Carolina, but who’s counting?), he testified before the House Committee on Immigration, Citizenship, and Border Security following working with migrant workers in New York and he headed up a really kic-kass rally in Washington DC with Jon Stewart. Starting today, though, Colbert’s plate will be a little more full.
