Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are having a lot of fun “definitely not coordinating” with Stewart’s newly inherited super PAC. After spending big to have Mario Batali feed him, Stewart wished he could just hear what Colbert wanted him to spend the money on next.
Lo and behold, Colbert appeared on set — but definitely not to coordinate. So with a cardboard television outline, Colbert said, “I am calling on the super PAC. I cannot coordinate with them. I cannot communicate directly. I am calling on them not to run vicious character assassination ads that impugn and borderline slander any candidate if in any way those ads could be traced back to me.”
Still definitely not coordinating. And just to be safe, Colbert and Stewart called their lawyer.
