Stephen Colbert Bill O'Reilly

“I had an uncle, Roger. He was a great guy. My mum was always saying, “Why can’t he find a nice girl?”. Well, one Thanksgiving he shows up to dinner in a damp suit with his roommate Clicky. You know, it’s obvious to anybody but I didn’t know – I was young. Though, even as a kid I found it odd that they slept in the same saltwater tank and it just…it just breaks my heart…that they could never be open about it. My uncle eventually had blowhole reassignment surgery…and got caught in a tuna net. So O’Reilly, back off on the Dolphins. But gay marriage – yeah, that’s sick.”

Hey, Hubsters—

The music has stopped. StePhest ColbChella is over. The musicians have laid down their guitars, the singers are silent, and a satisfied audience sighs happily. Let’s hope that this turns out to be the first of many annual StePhests. As for me, I’m raising a glass to the wonderful Jack White for being one of the very best it-getters ever.

And I’m also raising another glass shortly–a caipirinha–to celebrate my birthday Brazilian-style. We will not discuss ages, and adding another year is no fun…except, as the old saying goes, the alternatives are worse.

Now, a very different week awaits us, focused on politics, religion, and the military.  So onward…. Read more…

Colbert May Get FEC Exemption To Launch SuperPac.

Comedian Stephen Colbert’s plan to launch a “SuperPac” moved one step closer to reality today, as the Federal Election Commission issued a pair of draft opinions allowing him to use his TV show’s resources to promote the group.

The Comedy Central star has been awaiting the FEC’s ruling on whether he could plug his group, “Colbert SuperPac” on the air under the “media exemption” to federal campaign finance law.

Regardless of which draft opinion is adopted, Colbert would be allowed to create his SuperPac and use his show’s resources to produce advertisements for the Committee as long as they are only used on the show, without parent company Viacom being required to reveal its donations to political campaigns.

The FEC drafts conflict over whether Viacom would have to disclose work its employees did on the SuperPac that are not explicitly for the broadcast.

The commission’s ruling in this case has the potential to tear down the boundaries between entertainment and politics on TV. The FEC’s ruling would also apply to any other media personality looking to promote independent expenditure groups on TV, for instance Karl Rove .

The FEC is accepting comments on the drafts until this upcoming Tuesday. The full commission will then consider them at its meeting on June 30.

The finish to our Music Week, Stephen brings down the house with his new sure-to-be hit, “Charlene II (I’m Over You).” It is so great that Stephen is using his attempt to revive his 80s splendor by also attempting to address an interesting issue: the digitization of the music industry itself. I don’t know about you, but I am so getting a copy of the new vinyl (preferably the red, white, and blue one.) Now I just have to buy a record player!
