Whoopie Cushion in Every Pot

Stephen Colbert has managed to make a mockery of the entire United States election process by getting authorization from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to start his Super PAC (Political Action Committee). Who knew that the FEC was a left-leaning organization?

What a joke–and I don’t mean it in the comedian sort of way.

It’s unclear what Colbert plans to do with his PAC–other than collect money from any whacky liberals who are loony enough to give it to him–but he might run another of his fake presidential campaigns. Oh, and attempt to ruin the country as wel know it.

I hate to admit it, but I used to watch when his show when it first came on because it too me a while to figure out that he was a fake conservative, but one of the ramifications of this move are clear: A single comedian is going to have an undue influence on our political process.

I don’t understand all of the ramifications of his PAC, but I know that it stems from his hatred of the common sense Supreme Court ruling, Citizens United. I’m not a lawyer, but I’m sure someone at Wikipedia who wrote this was: Citizens United allows  that “corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited—because of the First Ammendment.”

Corporations have to be treated the same as people when it comes to financial contributions related to elections. When the Supreme Court made the Citizen’s United ruling, I guarantee you that their intent was to give undue political influence over our elections to those who deserve it– large corporations who may or may not be part of this country–not one person, especially a comedian.

We live in a capitalistic democracy, not a socialist democracy and certainly not a comedic democracy.

In a capitalistic democracy, those who have more money have more influence. That’s the way it should be. They were smart enough to get the money, so they should be smart enough to choose who runs the country.

We don’t live in some whacky socialist democracy, where every person has the same influence on an election regardless of how much money they have. Do you want poor people deciding what we should do next? They would vote that the entire country should be on welfare and be done with it.

I also didn’t think we lived in a comedic democracy, either–until today. But now, thanks (that’s sarcasm) to Stephen Colbert, a comedians will have as much influence on our elections as oil companies, unnamed foreign investors, and billionaires.

It will soon be a whoopie cushion in every pot.
