For those of you who dont watch The Colbert Report and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, youre not only missing some of the best comedy on TV. Youre missing some of the most accurate news analysis anywhere.
Lately, Stephen Colbert and Stewart have been exposing the absurdity of the decisions by conservatives on the US Supreme Court ruling that money equals free speech and that corporations have the rights of people. To do so, Colbert created a Super PAC called Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow. Then after he learned that he out-polled John Huntsman in his native state of South Carolina, Colbert created an exploratory committee to assess his chances of running for President. (No doubt that he would be better than any of the Teapublican candidates, but thats beside the point.)
Colbert then turned his Super PAC over to his good friend and business associate, Jon Stewart. Now labeled The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC, Stewart claims it is keeping him busy sorting receipts for crown polish, first-class airfare and his new diamond tiara, the intent is to show that there are virtually no restrictions on how much money can be contributed on behalf of candidates and how little control the FEC exerts over that money.
Now Colbert and The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC are asking that South Carolina primary voters vote for Herman Cain. Why? Colbert is too late to get on the primary ballot, and the 9-9-9er has dropped out of the race. So any votes for Cain may be assumed to be votes for Colbert and against the Supreme Court decision.
So, if youre eligible to vote in the South Carolina primary, please vote for Colbert er I mean Cain. After all, if we must have a clown in the presidential race, it may as well be a good one.
