With Colbert’s announcement and his recent drive to raise funds. I have the feeling a whole lot of people are scratching their heads and wondering what all the hoopla is about. As informed as I like to be, I was thinking what exactly is the big deal. Today I’m going to put a little bit of that noise to the grind and see if it can make sense. Let’s say ok what is a super pac? Here we go…
A PAC is a “Political Action Committee”. They get to raise money and spend it to influence Federal Elections. You’ve seen and heard what they do. They spend money on campaign TV ads, radio spots, and other advertising propaganda.
A Super PAC is an “independent expenditure only committee”. Doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it? What do they do? They can raise as much money as they can, then use it to promote whatever political agenda it pleases.
The real story here is, what is Colbert really doing? Is he going to influence the election? Or is he showing the absurd nature to how our elections now work? I’m guessing it’s 30% part 1 mixed with 50% part 2 and 20% humor to boot.
I have to imagine that a lot of people are donating money to Colbert who Say Ok, let’s see what you can do. Which leads me to 10th Concession. They’re a band with a song called Say Ok. From what I gather about the lyrics, it’s about a person asking for another to put their faith in them. Then be allowed to follow wherever it takes them.
There is a cool piano opening here. It’s what immediately drew me in to the song. Once the song gets rolling I get the feeling that it’s band was born on a University campus. I’m not sure why. It’s the feeling I get. Either way, it’s a fun little song that gets my toe tapping. I like that.
Why not be part of 10th Concession’s pac? or at the least, be an über fan. Of course if you go the super route, you might get people to say ok, what is a super pac? Then you can set them down and explain it all.
Heck be a part of my pac, sign up on the email list in the upper right – you’ll be glad you did!
