Stephen Colbert's running PAC shtick creates sticky mess

Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0611/580...

Avocates of reducing the power of money in politics thought they had found a champion in the unlikely person of Comedy Centralís Stephen Colbert, whose ongoing shtick about forming a political action committee brought more attention to their cause than all their press releases, testimony and legal briefs combined.

As part of his effort to highlight ó and parody ó the impact of a 2010 Supreme Court decision opening new avenues for corporate money in elections, the satirist plans to testify Thursday in front of the Federal Election Commission about a very real legal request he filed that would allow his planned Colbert Super PAC to push the envelope on corporate political spending.

AMAZON bails...

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed into law California's tax on Internet sales through affiliate advertising which will immediately cut small-business website revenue 20% to 30%, experts say.
The bill, AB 28X, takes effect immediately. The state Board of Equalization says the tax will raise $200 million a year, but critics claim it will raise nothing because online retailers will end their affiliate programs rather than collect the tax. LEAVE IT TO LIBERALS TO TAX AWAY MORE JOBS TO FUND ILLEGALS AND WELFARE.

JOBLESS CLAIMS -- 428,000... 12 WEEKS OVER 400K...MORE FAILURE FROM OBAMA AND THE LEFT.

U.S. Monthly Combat Deaths in Iraq at 3-Year High...MORE FAILURE FROM THE COMMANDER IN CHUMP.

Obama opens contacts with Muslim Brotherhood...OH, IS OBAMA GOING TO SURRENDER AGAIN.

TSA FAIL: Nigerian Man Flies From NY to LA With Fake ID, Day-Old Boarding Pass...WELL AT LEAST HE DIDNíT HAVE A DIRTY DIAPER OR WAS IN A WHEEL CHAIR.

Colbert is an American hero.

He speaks truth to power as Jon Stewart does with satire, which is lost on Rethuglicans who live in a humor free zone.

I hope he does raise one dollar from every viewer he has- and that would put him on the top of any fund raising campaign.

Imagine if everyone gave 5 bucks? WOW.

Either we repeal Karl Rove's "Citizen's United" decision, or we are doomed to have only billionaires running for office, with endless help from foreign terror dollars laundered by the Chamber of Horrors.

Don't be mad because it took you 5 years to figure out it was satire. You thought he was serious. Now you feel like a fool. There is a reason for that.....

That's why I asked. Evidently, you don't know either, otherwise you would have said so. So now,what law was broken? Look through your teabagger talking points and tell us, what LAW was broken?
