The Colbert Super PAC ads just keep getting more deliciously whacked as they go along. This one is narrated by actor Sam Elliot. The ad starts out decrying the negative attack ads used by the republican candidates against one another and the millions spent by their respective Super PACs, and how this is having such a deleterious effect on our democracy. Then asks for unlimited donations to blast the other Super PACs "out of existence" so we can all return to more idyllic times before these hated Super PACs appeared.

Brilliant.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
