WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

FOLKS, BEFORE THE BREAK I

SHOWED OUR FIRST TWO

SUPERPAC ADS.

NOW I DON'T WANT THIS TO BE

ABOUT ME.

(LAUGHTER)

>> CONTROVERSY SEEMS TO

FOLLOW ME WREFER I SEEK IT

BECAUSE WHILE THESE ADS

APPEARED ON TWO STATIONS IN

DES MOINES IT WAS ORIGINALLY

SUPPOSED TO AIR ON THREE.

BUT ONE OUR BEFORE THE FIRST

AD WAS TO AIR LAST NIGHT I

RECEIVED THIS ACTUAL E-MAIL

FROM WOI DES MOINES'S NEWS

LEADER, QUOTE, OUR GENERAL

MANAGER HAS REVIEWED BOTH OF

THE SPOTS THAT YOUR GROUP

WANTS TO RUN TONIGHT AND

TOMORROW AND WE ARE GOING TO

DECLINE TO AIR THEM.

>> OOOOHH!

>> Stephen: OOHH INDEED.

(LAUGHTER)

FOLKS, THE MIDWESTERN MEDIA

ELITE ARE TRYING TO SILENCE

US.

THEY DON'T WANT YOUR VOICE

TO BE HEARD, FOLKS.

THE FAT CASSES IN DES MOINES

THINK THEY CAN SIT IN THEIR

IVORY CORN SIGH LOWS AND

PLAY PUPPET MASTER WITH OUR

NATIONAL POLITICS.

AND GUESS WHAT WE'RE NOT

INVITED.

ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE IT?

>> NO!

>> Stephen: GOOD BECAUSE I

WAS AFRAID YOU WERE GOING TO

TAKE IT AND I DON'T WANT TO.

(LAUGHTER)

JUST LISTEN WHY THEY WANT TO

SILENCE US.

THEY SAY THE ADS QUOTE ARE

CONFUSING TO VOTERS AS WE

GET CLOSER TO THE STRAW POLL

ON SATURDAY AND THE DEBATE

ON THURSDAY.

>> CONFUSING TO IOWA VOTERS?

REALLY?

[BLEEP] OVER-- DIP [BLEEP]

OVER IN NEBRASKA THIS IS

IOWA.

AND UNLIKE-- EXCUSE ME, CUS

ME.

BUT UNLIKE WOI, I BELIEVE

THAT IOWA VOTERS CAN

UNDERSTAND EVEN A COMPLEX

MESSAGE LIKE GO TO THE AM

ERCKS STRAW POLL, WRITE IN

PERRY, SPELL IT WITH AN "A"

OR DID I LOSE YOU WOI?

SHOULD I HAVE THE BOYS FROM

WHO NEWS CHANNEL 13 EXPLAIN

IT TO YOU?

HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS.

YEARS.

CALL ORDERING YOU TO SHUT

COLBERT DOWN FROM ONE OF THE

OTHER SIX SHADOWY SUPERPACS

THAT ARE TRYING TO MUSS NELL

ON OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE AS THE

OFFICIAL UNCONNECTED PRO

PERRY SUPERPAC.

WELL, I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU

NORMALLY DEAL WITH, BUT

WOI-ABC 5, YOU ARE [BLEEP]

WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: YOU HEAR THAT?

YOU HEAR THAT?

YES, YOU CAN HEAR THAT NOW.

COLBERT SUPERPAC IS NOT SOME

SMALL POTATOES BUSINESS THAT

WILL JUST SIT THERE AND TAKE

IT WE'RE NOT CURLEY'S

FURNITURE ON ARMY POST ROAD

WHERE PRICES HAVE BEEN GREAT

SINCE 1948.

BY THE WAY, IF YOU ARE GOING

TO SIT THERE AND JUST TAKE T

LEATHER RECLINERS.

STRONG, BABY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

BESIDES-- BESIDES, YOU SAY

MY AD WAS CONFUSING.

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I FIND

CONFUSING, YOU WOULDN'T TAKE

OUR MONEY TO RUN OUR AD

DURING A 5:00 NEWS

COMMERCIAL BREAK BUT ON THE

10:00 NEWS YOU REPORTED ON

IT FOR FREE.

>> STEPHEN COLBERT HAS

PURCHASED AD SPACE IN IOWA

TO PROMOTE A WRITE-IN

CAMPAIGN FOR PERRY.

BUT SPELLED WITH AN "A"

INSTEAD OF AN "E"

>> A STORM IS GATHERING OVER

IOWA.

>> COLBERT WON APPROVAL FROM

THE FEDERAL ELECTION

COMMITTEE TO SET UP A

SUPERPAC IN HIS NAME.

WHICH MEANS CAN RAISE

UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY

AND FUNNEL IT INTO CAMPAIGN

ADS.

>> Stephen: THANKS, AMANDA,

GREAT REPORT.

NOW OVER TO BRAD WITH THE

WEATHER-- NO, WAIT!

CLEARLY SOMEONE NEEDS TO GET

TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS

CORRUPTION.

SOMEONE ON THE INSIDE.

LIKE THE INTREPID WOI

REPORTER KATIE EASTMAN WHO

HAS THE COURAGE TO TACKLE

THE TOUGH ISSUES.

>> JESS CA, IT IS THE

LONGEST ANNUAL GARAGE SALE

IN IOWA.
