Stephen Colbert appreared on this morning's TODAY to discuss his new children's book "I Am a Pole (And So Can You)" as well as the heated presidential election. Joked the Comedy Central host about Romney and Obama, "Apparently, it comes down to whether or not it's crueler for an adult man to strap a dog to his car and then drive for 12 hours or offer a 10-year-old boy to eat dog, given to him by his stepfather. As far as I can tell, that's the biggest differentiation between the two."
David Gregory, filling in for Today anchor Matt Lauer, asked Colbert about his political beliefs. "I talk about politics a lot, but I don't actually understand politics. I make jokes about politics," responded Colbert. "That's why I, for instance, I started a Super PAC, so I could find out what it's really like." Colbert recently started a political action committee, the Colbert Super PAC SHH Institute, raising more than $1 million and drawing attention to the questionable ways in which campaigns get financed.
"I heard that there were laws to prevent you from doing things with campaign finance money," revealed Colbert, "until I went to do it. And then I found out there kind of aren't."
