Colbert Testimony Shows Up In First Political Ad
Last Friday’s testimony before a Congressional Committee by comedian Stephen Colbert has made its way into its first political ad:
Political satirist Stephen Colbert’s congressional testimony on migrant farm workers week has already become fodder for an attack ad.
The new spot targets West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin, who is in a tough fight with GOP businessman John Raese for the Senate. The ad claims Manchin will only make things worse in Washington.
“Washington has grown too big, inefficient and out of control,” the ad says before cutting to a still of Colbert at a House panel. “And they think it’s all one big joke.
The ad is not from the Raese campaign, but from an independent party. Nonetheless, I doubt this is the last we’ll see of this.
