In an effort to take full advantage of the Citizens United decision, Stephen Colbert has been approved to start his own Super PAC. This will permit him to use his show, The Colbert Report, to raise unlimited sums money for political speech provided it’s spent independently of individual candidates. One can only imagine what he has up his sleeve. Far from perceiving this as just a joke, I think Colbert’s brand of satire is going to have serious consequences in the way Americans view their campaign finance system. As such, I have donated to Colbert Super PAC to support his efforts. I suspect it may have a lot more impact than throwing it towards any particular candidate.
In any event, once you donate to Colbert Super PAC, he sends you this autographed picture as a thank you.
