Stephen Colbert SuperPAC Ad: Vote for Rick Parry!

by at . Comments

Just a few days prior to the August 13 straw poll in Iowa, Stephen Colbert - the self-appointed President and Assistant Equipment Manager for Colbert SuperPAC - has released his first political ad.

Who does the talk show host endorse? Rick Parry. No, not Rick Perry, governor of Texas. Rick Parry, a fictional write-in candidate described by Colbert in the following statement:

"I recognized that he's got the tough talk, the cowboy boots, and the history-of-shooting-coyotes-during-morning-jogs that our country needs. So if anybody is going to be taking unlimited donations and then not be coordinating with his campaign, it's going to be not us. So to prove we're truly uncoordinated, we're asking voters to write in Parry with an A - as in America, IowA, or PresidAnt. You can feel confident he's not asking us to do that."

Good for Stephen Colbert, about time someone pointed out the pigs at the trough political system that is destroying this once great country. I hope their next ad mentions that american corporate tax revenue is at the lowest level ( as a portion of GDP) since the late 1930's and that 38% of US corporations pay no federal income tax at all. Little wonder they have unlimited money to spend on pacs.
