Texans give more money to Colbert's PAC than to Romney's

Houston Chronicle 2/27/12
Texans give more money to Colbert's PAC than to Romney's

WASHINGTON - How popular is comedian Stephen Colbert's semi-serious Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow?

In Texas, it's more popular that Mitt Romney's leading Super PAC.

Federal Election Commission records examined by the Houston Chronicle indicate more Texans have donated to Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow than to the pro-Romney Restore Our Future.

Colbert, a popular TV satirist, created Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow as a means of educating his cable audience on how Super PACs could affect the 2012 presidential election.

(snip)
Houston resident Rebecca Stewart is the among the Texas donors. She says she decided to donate not because she was a fan of Colbert's Comedy Central, but because she was upset with the Supreme Court's ruling that led to the Super PAC craze.

1. It would be interesting to know how many think Colbert is conservative.

2. I'm sure there are some that don't get it

As bushie would say:

"There's an old saying in Tennessee I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee that says, fool me once, shame on shame on you. Fool me you can't get fooled again."


We've got our share of nut bags. But if there are some still being fooled, then good for Colbert for separating them from their money.
