Stephen Colbert Declares Victory at FEC; Gets His Own Super-PAC

“There will be others who say, ‘Stephen Colbert, what will you do with the unrestricted Super-PAC money?’ ” Mr. Colbert told reporters after the F.E.C. hearing. “To which I say, I don’t know. Give it to me and let’s find out.”

A "SuperPAC" is "a political group that can legally accept unlimited contributions from people, corporations, and unions to campaign for candidates and causes."

News from The Onion continues to be decidedly mild, i.e., downright sane, compared to the real news in this bizarro nation. Stephen Colbert's mockery of the Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. F.E.C., -- which opened the flood gates to corporate money in elections -- has turned into the ultimate mockery. Today the FEC approved Colbert's own corporate money-tree. Colbert can promote his new FEC approved Super-PAC on his own show, compliments of Viacom. No disclosures will be required. Thanks Supremes!

"I don't accept the status quo. I do accept Visa, Mastercard or American Express."
