While Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are definitely not coordinating with each other (hence the Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC) regarding Colbert’s presidential bid, the duo paired up during last night’s Daily Show to make sure that their continued efforts, which includes that ad accusing GOP front-runner Mitt Romney of being a serial killer, was all perfectly legal.
After a call to their lawyer, Trevor Potter, Colbert, and Stewart non-coordinated together to find out that not only are they in the clear, but if they do get fined for their actions, they can just use some of their Super PAC money. Watch them figure out some clever loopholes — all while non-coordinating, of course — here:
Thankfully, all that non-coordinating made its way to The Colbert Report as well, when the future President of South Carolina shared the newly released Herman Cain ad from the Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC. The spot reiterates to South Carolina voters the plea that a vote for the former Republican candidate/”future Celebrity Apprentice star” is actually a vote for Colbert, who is unfortunately not on the South Carolina ballot. See for yourself how the Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC acts as a “money placenta” for Colbert:
Are you ready for Stephen Colbert to “slide out all wet and electable” for South Carolina, PopWatchers? Are you impressed by with what Jon Stewart and the Super PAC have done by in no way coordinating with Colbert? Is this the single greatest thing Colbert and Stewart have pulled off thus far?
