New Colbert SuperPAC Ad Encourages SC To Vote For ‘Herman Cain’ (http://www.mediaite.com/online/new-colbert-superpac-ad-encourages-sc-to-vote-for-herman-cain-stephen-colbert/)
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> TELEVISION, USA – <span style='font-size: 14pt'>The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC </span>released a new television commercial today in South Carolina, in advance of the upcoming underfunded GOP Primary. The ad, entitled “Not Abel,” shows support for Stephen Colbert’s possible candidacy by offering voters a way to show support for Stephen Colbert’s possible candidacy.
“Tragic new reports show that South Carolinians can sometimes go for several minutes at a stretch without seeing a single political ad,” said Jon Stewart, President For Life For Now of The Definitely Not Coordinating with Stephen Colbert Super PAC.” Even more tragically, we discovered that one visionary leader wasn’t having his voice heard: Stephen Colbert. Now I can proudly say: He’s still not having his voice heard, because we do not coordinate with any candidate or campaign.”
The spot begins running today as a massive, multi-dozen-dollar ad buy in South Carolina. Snooty types who love to mention how they never watch television can view the ad here.
The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC, nče Colbert Super PAC, is officially known as Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, but is secretly hoping it will get a cool nickname like “Buzzsaw” or “Snakes.” </div></div>
Wait, there's more!
Romney To Gingrich: Your SuperPAC’s Ad Against Me ‘The Biggest Hoax Since Bigfoot’ (http://www.mediaite.com/tv/romney-to-gingrich-your-superpacs-ad-against-me-the-biggest-hoax-since-bigfoot/)
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">After two action-packed hours where the candidates went at each other with the proverbial kitchen sink on most issues, the elephant in the room between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich finally reared its head: the impact of SuperPAC ads on both of their elections. Gingrich responded to a question from Wall Street Journal‘s Gerald Seib about an attack from SuperPACs by taking a shot at Romney, who responded by clearly indicating that the SuperPAC supporting Gingrich was just as bad, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>and he would rather SuperPACs just <u>“disappear.</u></span>
Gingrich responded to a question about attacks from a Romney-sympathetic SuperPAC by describing it as “typical of what both Sen. Santorum and I have complained about,” and snidely noted that it was a PAC Romney “apparently has no influence over, which makes you wonder what influence he would have if he were President.” Romney got a chance to respond, noting that he had “already said in our last debate that anything that is false in PAC ads, whether supportive of me or not, should be removed.” He continued to explain that he “can’t call these people and direct them to do that because it would violate federal law,” so Gingrich’s demand was illegal.
On the same note, Romney turned the attack around on Gingrich, saying “you have a SuperPAC that attacks me, with probably the biggest hoax since Bigfoot.” Gingrich replied that he himself had called for the SuperPAC to edit the ad, and that “the head of that group has actually submitted to your campaign a set of questions to make sure that it edited.”
Romney added on a conciliatory note that “it would be nice for SuperPAC ads to disappear,” and then called McCain/Feingold (the partially repealed Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act– a cornerstone of the legacy of Romney supporter Sen. John McCain in the Senate) “a disaster.” </div></div>
Colbert is showing, in his own brilliant way, what a disaster the Citizens United decision was to the democratic process and fair elections.
Its not over, Colbert has just begun. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif

Reports of the death of the republic are soon to be less exaggerated.
Some said that would happen when the lower classes learned how to vote themselves benefits.
Instead, it happened when the corporations and super-rich learned how to buy the elections.
Its pretty amazing to me that the RW here have no comment on this!
Something that is so obviously against democracy is OK until the shark bites back.
