Stephen Colbert Super PAC ad attacks...Stephen Colbert (Video)

Last week, when Stephen Colbert announced he was turning over his Super PAC to Jon Stewart in order to form an exploratory committee about running for president of the United States of South Carolina , his lawyer made it very clear that Colbert could not coordinate with his Super PAC.

And to prove how much he’s listening to those instructions, the Super PAC’s latest ad attacks...Colbert himself.

“Come on. Why is the T in his name silent? What else is he silent about? Letting murderers out of jail?” sneers the ad, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.

Anyway, the ad also urges people to vote for Herman Cain. In case you missed it, Colbert is holding a rally in South Carolina a day before the state’s primary featuring Cain as a special guest.

Colbert promises that the rally — called “The Rock Me Like a Herman Cain: South Cain-olina Primary Rally” — will be even better than his “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear”in Washington last October, if only for the absence of Jon Stewart.
