Standing Up for Cows and True Americanimity

Abby Zimet

Stephen Colbert is zeroing in on South Carolina now that Mitt "Tone Deaf" Romney has admitted paying just 15% of his $250 million in taxes and laughingly dismissed his $362,000 in speaking fees as "not very much." In his first two ads, Colbert has accused Romney of being a serial killer, aka Mitt the Ripper, for killing off corporations (who are “people, my friend”) and urged primary voters to vote for Herman Cain, who's "such a Washington outsider, he’s not even running." Priceless. Bonus Video: A giggling Colbert and Stewart gleefully not coordinating on their Super PAC.
