I never watched a man murder a ham on television before.
 
2012-11-13 12:08:40 PM  
HA!

He really does do a solid job explaining the law.
 
2012-11-13 01:09:41 PM  
That was beautifully done.

Stewart and Colbert and brilliant, their writers are brilliant, everything about both shows is brilliant.
 
2012-11-13 01:58:43 PM  
God I hope the ham ends up floating dead in a river within the month.

/The REAL ham that is.
//Not the ham ham.

Technically it's still traceable because that letter stay son record. But it becomes a royal pain in the ass, particularly if you don't know what you are looking for

I think we need a moment of silence for Ham Rove.
 
2012-11-13 02:03:54 PM  
And this is not parody.
 
2012-11-13 02:05:02 PM  
And this is why Rove is an evil genius.

Did Colbert just admit to having syphilis?

Nothing gives me more pleasure than knowing that these over-privileged jackasses lost all of that money to that ham-faced hustler. And as a bonus, Karl is most likely persona non grata amonst the republican elite.

Happy days are here at last.

The 2nd PAC transfers it to an offshore account. Find the money now.

Can a 501c4 invest money and use the gains, while still keeping the IRS in the dark about the money?

I am SO going to do this next election!!

Step 1) Make a crazy right wing PAC and ask for donations
Step 2) Sit on donations
Step 3) PROFIT!!!!


Holy hell getting rich from right wing idiots legally!!!!!

Well, sounds like some lawyers are getting a paid vacation to the Caribbean. Of course you can then extend the same process to pass the money through Luxembourg, Hong Kong, and anywhere else you'd like. All I'm saying is that it can be unraveled if need be, but this makes it prohibitively expensive to do so in all but the most extreme cases
 
2012-11-13 02:09:15 PM  
So Rove trolled the super Rich for millions and now they're out for the money and may kill and/or accidentally the whole Rove to get it back?

If I were Karl, I think I'd avoid going on any hunting trips with wealthy Republican donors for a while.

Believe it or not, one of his big financiers told City Pages of Minneapolis he thinks Rove is still a genius, and wanted to know if giving Rove more money next time might turn things for the better.

Colbert and Stewart are the closest thing we have to actual journalism these days.

who hits harder than these guys?
Bonus: they do better than CNN,MSNBC, and FOX combined and still have time to throw in some dick jokes.

the MSM really should be ashamed.


/Colbert did a great job exposing the joke that is super PAC law.

Teach America how the current tax law with respect to SuperPACs and 501c4s can be abused.

Good farking luck getting anyone to pay attention let along learn it. Yet here we are, that was masterful.
 
2012-11-13 02:14:49 PM  
I think if Rove has any brains, he won't do anything close to what was suggested. Unless Rove wants to see his brains on his lap.

Those guys, Adelson, Koch Brothers and the like, if they even catch a sniff that Rove took some amount of their Super PAC money for his own gain, will hunt Rove down like a dog. Oh yes, Rove's death would be very highly publicized to make sure no other bundler would consider doing the same thing.

What does it take to form a SuperPAC again?

I'm asking for purely intellectual reasons.

I have never heard Maddow sneak a dick joke into her show.


/ok, she's good. better than Olberman was, but I still think TDS and Colbert do better. Their show's benefit from the shield of humor in a way Maddow can't IMO.

If no one was killed during the financial meltdown in 2008, no one is getting killed for SuperPAC shennanigans.
 
2012-11-13 02:21:17 PM  
Man, these assholes really farked up our country with all of this SuperPac bullshiat. I hope at least a few people have realized this by now. Lucky for us, we had Colbert to air the dirty laundry on this. Otherwise, no one would be any wiser, and people really would start these things up as a legal con job.

Anyone know how much Rove is sitting on(An estimate, of course)?
 
2012-11-13 02:21:39 PM  
Oh. My. God.

I'm not laughing.
 
2012-11-13 02:22:09 PM  
Wait. Karl Rove,...fleeced a bunch of right-wing billionaires...for no electoral gain.


Does this make him a hero?

In terms of content, Maddow is the best there is. But she's... awkward. Her jokes are sometimes weird, her laugh is annoying, her attempts at making things entertaining for the most part fail miserably. In terms of entertainment, TDS and Colbert are significantly better. But for content there is nothing anywhere near as good as Maddow.

Yep.

The joy that it was wasted money really doesn't make up for that.
 
2012-11-13 02:22:54 PM  

Karl, was it worth it? Where are you going to hide from people who have enough money to bribe anyone? Good luck, Karl.

Nah. They'll give him more money next time. They're entirely unconvinced that they can't actually just buy a president, they figure they just didn't pay enough.

StopLurkListen: Oh. My. God.

I really, really, really hope at least Colbert will donate it all to the Wounded Warriers.

But yeah. As far as the jester being the one who can speak the truth... Holy crap, that jester just re-enacted the murder play from Hamlet.

(I remember reading that before he got funny, Colbert was the serious wearing all black wanna be Hamlet type, so that's incredibly fitting).

The funny thing is that if the rich donors had gotten Romney elected they would regarde embezzlement from PACs as just part of the cost of buying a President.
