It is almost all but settled that Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, er, Parry will be hitching his saddle to the most powerful Super PAC in the country: Americans for a Better Tomorrow Tomorrow, Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC brought to you by the Colbert Nation! According to POLITICO this is “no joke.”
No joke: Presidential candidate Rick Perry and comedian Stephen Colbert, who last week barraged Iowa voters with advertisements urging voters to support “Rick Parry,” shared the same political committee treasurer – until they didn’t.
Salvatore Purpura, who has represented numerous political committees as treasurer over the years, told POLITICO that he resigned on Thursday as treasurer of Colbert’s super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow.
See?… Wait, that wasn’t the part about the…
Then, on Monday, Perry – not Parry – formally filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission listing Purpura has his campaign treasurer.
Right there! That’s it… Wait, damn it!…
Colbert, in an email to POLITICO, praised Purpura’s service.
“We’re not surprised. Sal is the best in the business. That’s why we went with him,” Colbert wrote. “We’re happy for Sal and we are even happier that Governor Parry has sent the clear signal of which super PAC he trusts to receive all that unlimited money waiting to pour in on his behalf. Loud and clear, sir. Unofficially, loud and clear.”
HAH! I knew I’d find it! See? Governor Perry Parry is sending signals that he’s definitely going to choose Colbert PAC! It’s soooooo obvious. He’s just playing the tease right now like an exact genetic splice of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
