Well, no one can say that comedian Stephen Colbert isn’t putting some good effort into his South Carolina “presidential bid.”
First, he’s removed himself from his super PAC, handing over the reigns to his former boss. “The super PAC — which is also now known as The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC — was founded by comedian Stephen Colbert. Colbert transferred control of the PAC to Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” last week so he could form an exploratory committee to consider a run for “president of the United States of South Carolina.”
Now, Colbert is throwing himself full steam ahead into his, well, non-third party bid. “On ABC’s ‘This Week,’ George Stephanopoulos asked Colbert, who is considering a mock run for president, whether he might launch a third party bid if he is unable to compete in the South Carolina primary. ‘I might go as a fourth or fifth party candidate,’ Colbert said, noting that Donald Trump and Texas Rep. Ron Paul could run as third party candidates.”
Now, in a sign that things are getting really serious, the PAC has released an anti-Romney attack ad. Playing off the “corporations are people” claim of Mitt Romney, the ad states that maybe Mitt Romney is a serial killer, considering the number of businesses he sent into bankruptcy. “As head of Bain Capital he bought companies, carved them up, and got rid of what he couldn’t use. If Mitt Romney really believes ‘Corporation are people, my friend,’ then Mitt Romney is a serial killer.”
