Just a day after releasing its first ad in Iowa, Colbert Super PAC has released its second ad supporting Rick Parry – That’s Parry with an A.
It feels like only yesterday Colbert Super PAC was launching our first in a then-one-part-series of commercials leading up to the Ames Iowa Straw Poll. But here we are, one tomorrow later, and Colbert Super PAC has just released its second in a thus-far-two-part series of commercials in support of Rick Parry.
Stephen Colbert and his Colbert Super PAC have released their first video ad. The minute long spot is airing tonight in Des Moines, IA. Colbert said Monday night on The Colbert Report the ad would run “
during all the local news broadcasts.” [Update: The local ABC affiliate in Des Moines decided not to run the ads. More details here.]
From the humor-filled email sent to members of the Super Pac:
I have exciting news to share from Colbert Super PAC. We have set our sights on Iowa – right after setting our sights on finding out where Iowa is. It’s further north than you think! In advance of the Ames Straw Poll, outside money has been pouring in trying to convince Iowans to write in Texas Governor Rick Parry. It’s a blatant display of unbridled opportunism that we want in on.
So I do not get kicked off the internet for inactivity. Here are a few links:
Mashable has video from the POV of a firework.

Google is making another attempt at social networking with Google+. In response, Facebook promised something “awesome” for next week. TechCrunch says the awesomeness will come in the form of video chat powered by Skype.
…and finally The New York Times has some hard-hitting reporting with a story on how to find out which dog did his business in your yard.
There probably won’t be much posted here until
November February – give or take a few days. I will be working on more things behind the scenes though.
In the mean time, here is some of what I worked on over the summer:
