Jon Stewart just sent out an email to supporters of the Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC, asking them to help him raise a bit of cash. From the email:
You know how when you borrow somebody’s car, it’s polite to return it with a full tank? Well I took Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC for a spin, and I used up the gas, the oil, the wiper fluid, and the back seat is covered in what I hope is chicken blood.
I don’t know how it happened – I didn’t mean to spend so much. But you know how it is – you gold-plate one plate, and then you realize you’ve got to do all the dishes, or else they won’t match.
But if Stephen ever gets the Super PAC back and sees what’s missing, I’m afraid he’ll get violent. He’s not very good at it – he just sort of flails his arms around like one of those inflatable car-dealership guys. But he lands the occasional blow, and his weeping and spittle can stain my tie.
