Colbert releases second ad before Iowa straw poll

Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC is going for a one-two punch.

The comedian’s ColbertSuperPAC has released its second ad in two days. While the first video took a light jab at the Super PACs supporting expected Republican candidate Rick Perry, this second one slams the groups for pandering to Iowans by featuring  “cheap cornography … that your kids could see.”

Once again voiced by Colbert himself, the group — “Americans for better tomorrow, tomorrow” — offers viewers some hardcore cornography, complete with a classic shucking soundtrack:

Iowans deserve better and we’re gonna give it to you … Ohhhh yeahhh …. We’re getting all up in those niblets.

Like the first ad, the Super PAC encourages Iowans to vote for “Rick Parry” in the Ames Straw Poll on Saturday, even if this one appeals to those voters’ “basest kernel instincts,” according to the press release.

In June the Federal Elections Commission agreed to let Colbert set up his Super PAC and produce media and promotional materials for it. Super PACs are political organizations that can raise unlimited funds from corporations, individuals and unions.
