Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart have officially taken their political comedy bit to unprecedented levels releasing an attack ad targeting Mitt Romney in South Carolina entitled, “Attack In B Minor For Strings.” Courtesy of “Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow” the Colbert-turned-Stewart-run super PAC known as “The Definitely NOT Coordinating with Stepehen Colbert Super PAC” is launching a full-scale attack on Republican front-runner Mitt Romney as the pair of Comedy Central comedians continue their mission to shed light on how utterly ridiculous campaign finance laws have become in the wake of Citizens United and Congress’s absolute dereliction of duty in failing to address the problem with a permanent and workable solution.
The ad (narrated by John Lithgow) focuses on Mitt Romney’s much-scrutinized comment that “corporations are people.” The video was released on The Definitely NOT Coordinating with Stepehen Colbert Super PAC’s website and was accompanied by a press release and a letter from “President For Life For Now” Jon Stewart (both posted below).
And just in case you still haven’t got your fill of fake politicians mocking ridiculous quasi-non-political political organizations and the candidates they represent but have absolutely nothing to do with… Mr. Colbert – who just last week was polling better than Jon Huntsman in South Carolina – was also on This Week with George Stephanopolous Sunday morning. Enjoy.
Hi again, it’s me, Jon. When I took over this Super PAC, I had no idea there’d be so much email-writing. Also, there are a lot of plants around Super PAC office with extremely specific watering schedules. Seriously, does a Northwood Spotted Fern really need to be watered “thrice fortnightly at dusk”?
Anyway, The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC made an ad, and I figured you’d want to know. I’ve attached the press release below, so hopefully your mouse’s scroll-wheel isn’t broken.

And a press release…
AMERICA – The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC released its first TV ad today, in advance of South Carolina’s upcoming unnamed GOP Primary. The ad, which takes an objective look at Mitt Romney’s private sector experience, is entitled “Attack In B Minor For Strings.”
“Mitt Romney claims to be pro-corporations,” said Jon Stewart, President of The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC. “But would you let him date your daughter’s corporation? Americans have been clamoring for a comprehensive study of this crucial issue, so we splurged for the full sixty-second commercial. We think South Carolinians will agree – they deserve a leader who shares their state’s values, and perhaps even their state’s initials.”
The new spot begins airing today in a major ad buy that will blanket South Carolina from Charleston all the way to North Charleston. Those of you with some free AOL hours left can view the ad here.
The Definitely Not Coordinated With Stephen Colbert Super PAC, officially known as Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, is an independent, expenditure-only committee that’s been proudly serving the community since late Thursday.
