Colbert Debuts His Own Ad For Rick Scott Sanitary Napkins (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert debuted an ad for his line of Rick Scott sanitary napkins.

Stephen Colbert noted on Tuesday night’s “The Colbert Report” that Republicans may have problems communicating with women, but said “that doesn’t mean they don’t care.”

“They’re just like that shy kid at the dance who wants to get your attention by denying you equal pay,” Colbert said. “It means he likes you.”

Colbert then applauded the College Republican National Committee’s “Say Yes To The Candidate” ad.

“They are imitating the popular TLC show ‘Say Yes To The Dress’ to appeal to female voters in the same way you would appeal to veterans with ‘Cupcake Wars,'” he said.

“This ad is packed with all kinds of classic conservative messages: traditional marriage, fiscal conservatism, and hating mom,” he added. “I look forward to the next GOP ads telling baseball and apple pie to go fuck themselves.”

Colbert noted that this ad showed the modern GOP finally understood women.

“Who needs access to contraception and equal pay?” Colbert said. “You’re getting married, let him take care of that hard stuff.”

But Colbert had one objection. Since the ad was tailored to represent multiple candidates across the country, he noted that “trying out that many candidates disqualifies her from wearing white.”

Colbert then debuted his own commercial for a line of Rick Scott sanitary napkins.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
