The 2012 Presidential Election Just Got Funnier! Stephen Colbert To Air Political Ads!!!

stephen colbert to air political ads

We can't wait for these!

Stephen Colbert has JUST received approval from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for a "Colbert Super PAC," which will give him permission to "produce and air political advertisements." AWE-SOME.

It gets even better though! Stephen has also gotten permission to use Comedy Central parent company Viacom's production resources/airtime/staff without his ads being seen as an "in-kind" contribution from the company.

Basically what this means is that he'll be able to create political ads and express his views without Viacom having to be closely associated with his "politicking"…which is good, because they don't want to be. LOLz.

At this point, it looks like his ads will only be allowed to run during his show…but at least he'll be able to get the word out there!

We are seriously excited to hear what you have to say, Stephen! We're ready to be enlightened! Ha!

Do U think Stephen Colbert should be allowed to air political ads? Will U watch them?
