The whole point of the exercise was that it is above board legal approved by the FEC and illustrates what the citizens united decision did to the
election process. Perhaps you didn't notice (most voters didn't notice) all the campaign ads telling you you were going to die from socialism if
you elected democrats -- were funded by PACs who didn't have to be clear about their donors -- for instance the Chamber of Commerce and all the
foreign money they used, but could deny because they used the foreign money for other things; didnt deny that the had gotten foreign money but they
really didn't have to say who gave them the money to sway the elections.
So if some billionare wants to give a billion to Colberts PAC and Colbert can spend it how ever he wants, such as convincing (swiftboating) people
that Romney is actually a lizard person,you will never know who is buying the votes. Oh hey isn't this how the Koch brothers are buying votes.
Looks different when the dirty tricks are being played on you --- dont it.
