    It’s funny how he never brought this up again when Obama had billion dollar PAC backing him. Now Hillary has one. Colbert doesn’t think it is funny anymore?

      His Super PAC was to make fun of the ridiculousness (and dangers) of the current political landscape after the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United. It wasn’t targeted at one specific candidate. You’re reading into it too much if that’s all you see.

      Absolutely wrong for Obama and Hillary as well. Money should be out of politics for both spineless Republicans, as well as spineless Democrats. This way there is in no way direct, indirect, or tacit corruption. There are candidates who don’t have Super PACs, and don’t take money(aka bribes) from corporations, and that should be the norm. All others who do are no longer representing the people, but instead entities, such as corporations.
