Fresh off the heels of the release of the anti-Romney ad accusing Mitt Romney of being a serial killer, “The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert” SuperPAC released an attack ad today which attacks… Stephen Colbert.
It’s so meta and awesome, I can barely stand it.
“Vote ‘Not Romney’”
If you haven’t seen “The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert” Super PAC anti-Romney ad, what are you waiting for?

“Experiencing racism tends to be a worse experience than actually talking about racism or race… Talking always brings us closer to understanding.”
Melissa Harris-Perry handled Stephen’s antics very well. Take a look:
Here’s a link to Sister Citizen on Amazon. Buy it! I just did.
“I’m not black, white or anything — I’m a movie star.”
This is a couple weeks old, but I just watched it, so it’s new to me! Samuel L. Jackson (who really reminds me of my father) discusses his new broadway role playing Martin Luther King Jr. in The Mountaintop, and a hilarious discussion about race ensues.
I love that he calls being a movie star, “totally dope” and “a pretty big fucking deal.” Outstanding.
And, as always, you’re welcome.
I love it when Colbert breaks down like this:
It’s almost as good as his and Jon Stewart’s break-down over the Prince Charles scandal.
I’m still waiting for Stephen to give Adam Green the old “how’s your father” for Green’s cybersquatting skullduggery. Tick Tock.
Per the yoozsh, you’re welcome.
This was BRILLIANT.
The T-rex bit had me in stitches. STITCHES, I SAY!
P.S. Yeah, Obama is totes a Republican.

Adam Green is desperate for your money. So desperate that he is willing to lie, cheat, and steal to get it.
You see, a couple weeks ago, Adam Green (PCCC’s Treasurer and Grifter-in-Chief) registered the domain name “ColberSuperPAC” in an attempt to bleed donations and membership from Colbert’s Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow (which can be found at <www.ColbertSuperPac.com>):
Progressive Change Campaign Committee Treasurer Adam Green purchased the URL ColberSuperPAC.com, omitting the t in Stephen Colbert’s name, and then redirected that URL to his own PAC web site in an apparent attempt to steal critical membership and donations away from Colbert’s PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow. Colbert announced Friday night on his show, The Colbert Report, more than 100,000 previous ABTT members need to sign up a second time because the organization is now a super-PAC.

For those who have been trapped under something heavy, or have been transfixed by Anthony Weiner’s weiner, you may have missed an attempt by Palinistas to revise history to comport with Sarah Palin’s stupid recounting of Paul Revere’s midnight ride:
The argument over whether Sarah Palin was misinformed about the historical facts of Paul Revere’s ride has moved to where bar bets go to be settled: Wikipedia.
Since Ms. Palin described the ride last week while she was visiting Boston, Wikipedia’s Paul Revere article page has been the site of a mini “edit war.” And the page has gone from a little-visited one — 2,000 or so page views a day — to a more heavily trafficked one, with54,000 on Saturday when Ms. Palin’s comments were gaining the most news attention.
Over the course of the weekend, people added sentences to the Revere article that repeated Ms. Palin’s claims. It can be hard to discern motives for changes on Wikipedia, and in some cases people appeared to be attributing the claims to Ms. Palin in order to mock her.
One editor, Tomwsulcer, added the following sentence: “Accounts differ regarding the method of alerting the colonists; the generally accepted position is that the warnings were verbal in nature, although one disputed account suggested that Revere rang bells during his ride.”
When the discussion board for the Revere article was ringing with complaints that this was a lie, Tomwsulcer replied that it should be included as a theory because a prominent American politician, that is, Sarah Palin, had said it. “If you follow Wikipedia’s rules,” he wrote, “we must maintain a neutral position, representing the mainstream position as well as disputed versions.”
He lost the argument, but others have been searching history books to find evidence to support Ms. Palin’s claims.
