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."

Stephen Colbert will not be our next President. But he may have a say who gets the job.

The comedian/talk show host won approval today from the Federal Election Committee to form a SuperPAC, meaning Colbert can raise money and produce/buy television time for political advertisements.

"Moments ago the Federal Election Committee made their ruling," Colbert said ta crown below outside the FEC headquarters. "And ladies and gentlemen I'm sorry to say, we won!"

How did this come about? Former FEC Chairman Robert Lenhard said the ruling "means people can use their network's resources to fund their own PAC ads without needing to report it on their network, on their show."

As for the host of The Colbert Report? Added Lenhard:

"I think he's going to have fun. But until he gets at least a million dollars he's not going to run many ads outside of his show."

Colbert is already working on that, however. He solicited donations from fans during his speech, telling supporters: "I don't know about you but I do not accept limits on my free speech, I don't know about you but I do not accept the status quo. But I do accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express."

Sarah Palin is busy eating pizza with Donald Trump and fueling rumors of a possible presidential run as she embarks on a bus tour across the eastern U.S.

Among the many people questioning her motives is Stephen Colbert, who questioned last night on The Colbert Report, “Why is this happening!?”

According to Sarah’s website, which Stephen pointed out, the former governor of Alaska is promoting “the fundamental restoration of America.”

Sarah commented that even her youngest daughter, Piper, has been filled with the spirit of their journey, in particular with the work of our first president, George Washington, who worked “so hard to keep his farm running.”

“It’s true,” Colbert agreed. “I cannot imagine how hard he worked with no help other than his African volunteers.” Watch Stephen's full tirade:

Justin Bieber has sampled it.

Nick Jonas has sang a few lyrics in concert.

But no one has paid tribute to Rebecca Black's "Friday" quite like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon. The talk show hosts, who have agreed to be best friends for six months, collaborated on the track during Fallon's show last night.

The performance (which included The Roots and Taylor Hicks) came after Colbert accepted Fallon's challenge to cover the YouTube smash if Fallon's audience came up with $26,000 to give to DonorsChoose.Org. Both sides came through with their ends of the deal, leading to the following hilarity:

People on Twitter love Justin Bieber.

Of the top 10 re-Tweeted messages of the whole year, one was by Justin Bieber, and two others pertained to Justin Bieber. Which makes sense ... it is his world.

While celebrity Tweets registering at "100+" is commonplace, the social networking site actually did compile the top 10 re-Tweeted messages of the year.

Weezy and Gaga both made the Twitter Top 10.

The year's top Twitter posts included a defiant Britney Spears, food for thought by Drake, and a hilarious, sad and topical one-liner by Steven Colbert.

Strangely, Al-Qaeda cracked the top five. It's a satirical account, not really updated by Osama Bin Laden ... we think. How morbidly funny would that be?

So who came in at #1? Read the list after the jump ...

Jon Stewart is set to take down Glenn Beck and his followers. Or at least make us laugh a lot.

On last night's edition of The Daily Show, the Comedy Central host announced his Rally To Restore Sanity, a response to Beck's Restoring Honor Rally on August 28.

As he explains below, it's also a response to the fact that "loud folks dominate the conversation on our country's most important issues." He wondered why the relatively sane population of the country (estimated at around 80%) aren't the ones yelling ridiculous, unproven statements. His conclusion? These people actually have "shit to do."

In response to Jon Stewart's rally, Stephen Colbert will hold the March To Keep Fear Alive. Amazing.

On October 30, though, Stewart hopes these individuals will actually do something in Washington D.C.

In a "call for rationality," the comedian really is serious about organizing a rally for citizens that take the approach of "I disagree with you, but I’m pretty sure you’re not Hitler," as well as those who are "dissatisfied, but not ideological." Heck, he even made a few signs for people in attendance to hold up.

Check them out, and watch the entire (utterly hilarious) segment/announcement now:

A couple weeks ago, Glenn Beck held the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, D.C. It was attended by approximately 100,000 people.

Now, at least that many individuals apparently support the Restoring Truthiness Rally, as a Facebook page with that number of fans has cropped up, along with a website pleading with Stephen Colbert to hold such an event.

Steve Colbert

At ColbertRally dot com, readers urge other readers to spread the word about a gathering that would "flip a mirror to the Tea Party and show them just how ridiculous they are." Continues a passage on the website:

Okay, so Stephen Colbert had nothing to do with this. But this is what the Comedy Central host's trademark On Notice board would look like if THG got hold of it.

While Daniel Tosh may have passed him in the ratings, Colbert remains the man. Surely not a man you want to cross if you're an environmental disaster, anyway.

In honor of Stephen, and as a new means of calling out some things in the celebrity and real worlds that really deserve it, we're putting the following On Notice!

Puttin 'Em On Notice
  1. The oil spill. Way to ruin the Gulf of Mexico, BP.
  2. The View. This program is known for its outspoken panel's controversial stances ... but their ignorant HIV comments were straight out of the early 1980s.
  3. Mel Gibson. The fact that we had a hard time deciding which insane, racist, sexist Mel Gibson tirade to link to in this article tells you all you need to know.
  4. OK! Magazine. At least make up new lies. Yeesh.
  5. LeBron James' "team." No, not the Heat. The marketing gurus who convinced him to stick it to Cleveland on national TV. Way to "build a brand," guys!
  6. The-Dream. Stop lying. We know you were creepin'.
  7. East Coast weather. Al Gore must be cackling right now. If we wanted to live in a furnace, we'd move to Arizona. At least everything there has AC.
  8. Frank from The Bachelorette. We're not gonna give away any Bachelorette spoilers here ... but it's in the previews. How can you pull that crap, man?

In November, Conan O'Brien will return to late night with a talk show on TBS.

For now, though, he's continuing to go across the country with his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.

It stopped in Radio City Music Hall last night, and audience members were treated to the funniest dance-off since Step Up 2: The Streets. Who did O'Brien go up against? The Comedy Central duo of Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.

When all was said and done, one man lay dying on the floor, while another asked for his time slot...

Move over, Jay-Z.

The hip hop mogul, whose "Empire State of Mind" is one the most popular songs of 2009, might need to find a new line of work.

After all, Alicia Keys has evidently found a new duet partner on the hit single.

On last night's installment of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert grabbed a mic (and a hoodie) and rapped his own verse of the song, offering a shout-out to NYC's suburbs that included lines such as "My shorties are all private school educated" and:

I love New York/King of all the cities/Lived up by the Guggenheim/Til i got some kiddies...

It's great stuff. Check it out below.
