A stay-at-home mom learning how to be happy and healthy.

I must admit that I don’t know much about politics, Canadian or American, but I do love to watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.  They shed a hilarious light on political topics that otherwise I would not have been aware of or interested in.

This morning, Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC, released it’s financial reports and a statement which shows that since it’s inception through today, they have raised over a million dollars all in the name of a joke.  Super PACs can receive unlimited contributions from individuals, corporations, and unions.  Of those that gave to Colbert’s Super PAC, 90% gave less than $250.  That’s a lot of people in on the joke.  It is mind blowing what people will spend money on.  Let’s just hope Stephen Colbert spends the money wisely or at least makes us laugh harder than we have in a while.  So Congratulations Colbert Nation!  You have once again shown me what is so right and so wrong with America.  I can’t wait to see what you do next.
