Hardball | November 13, 2012
>>> back to "hardball." now to the "sideshow." during the gop primaries steve colonel bear started his own super pack . it was a spoof of course. with karl rove facing backlash from his donors who expected a vastly different return on their investment in mitt romney and other republicans, colbert offered up a response to his own donors.
>> karl is in big trouble . they're going to take his thumbs. and karl is almost all thumb. i took a lot of money for my super pac and my 501 c 4 colbert super pac shh which stands for shh. okay? money from some anonymous scary donors. that's not pixel ated. that's his face. listen, fellows, i didn't waste your money. running a super pac is expensive. i mean, we had legitimate costs. we had handling costs and we had legal fees, and the biggest expense, almost $90,000 of it was for the commercials the super pac ran while he was kind of sort of running for president of south carolina . i want even in charge of the super pac then.
>> in his home state of south carolina , of course, colbert was at one point polling ahead of a legitimate candidate, jon huntsman .
