Samuel L. Jackson wants America to wake the f--k up and re-elect President Barack Obama.

In a new viral ad, he conveys this dream as only he can ... with massive amounts of profanity.

Wake the F--k Up is a Dr. Seuss-style rhyme, written by Adam Mansbach, author of the children's book Go the F--k to Sleep (which Jackson also read aloud at one point).

Wake the F--k Up features Jackson and a little girl urging the rest of her family to vote for Obama. Same excerpts from the ad, produced by a liberal super PAC supporting Obama:

Samuel L. Jackson is making news for some candid remarks about President Barack Obama and why he supported him in 2008. What did the actor say exactly?

That he pulled the lever for Obama because of his race.

In an interview with Ebony, Jackson said, "I voted for Barack because he's black. 'Cuz that's why other folks vote for other people, because they look like them ... That's American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn't mean [bleep] to me."

Jackson then went on to drop the n-word many times discussing Obama, telling the magazine, "When it comes down to it, they wouldn't have elected a [bleep]."

"Because ... what's a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain't scary at all. [Bleeps] don't have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don't let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar," he said, referring to Joe Wilson's famous outburst.

"A [bleep] would've stopped right there and said, ‘Who the f--k said that?' I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, 'cuz he ain't gotta worry about getting re-elected."

There you go. The only thing missing is a Snakes on a Plane reference.

Provocative word choice aside, Jackson's point appears to be that some people vote based on race, and that Obama won because while he is black, he does not fit negative African-American stereotypes. For more on the subject, see Rock, Chris.

The campaign of Presidential quasi-candidate Stephen Colbert was dealt a major blow this week when it was established that voters can’t write his name in on the ballot during Saturday’s Republican primary in his native South Carolina.

Colbert has, as a result, devised a new strategy.

Well, Colbert Super PAC supporting him has anyway. The organization is now asking voters to pull the lever for Herman Cain (remember him?), who still appears on the ballot, as he qualified for it before dropping out of the race.

As Colbert’s TV ad, narrated by the incomparable Samuel L. Jackson says of Cain: “He’s such an outsider, he is not even running for president!”

The ad slams Colbert for “turning our election into a circus.” Obviously.

If you're confused, and frankly we don't blame you if so, the Colbert Super PAC is a political action committee ... formed expressly to mock such things.

A Super PAC can raise and spend unlimited amounts of cash on a candidate's behalf, yet cannot coordinate efforts with the candidate directly.

Colbert is staging a faux campaign as a means of ridiculing the system's absurdity, though he led Jon Huntsman and tied Rick Perry in one poll.

Huntsman quit the race Monday, while Rick Perry dropped out this morning. Colbert is still going hard, even if it's on Herman Cain's behalf.

Watch your back, Mitt and Newt.
