College students’ love of Stephen Colbert is pretty widespread, so it wasn’t too surprising to see a group of Brunonians translate his super PAC parody, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow to a University setting. The group, Brown Students for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, was founded by the University’s Democracy Matters branch, and claims to be “secretly pulling the strings behind UCS elections since 2012.”
Besides just having a website, the group recently hired professional professor of psychoceramics, Josiah Carberry, as its director and maintains a hyperactive Twitter feed that spent last the 18 hours spewing out 40+ tweets including, “Remember when Barack Obama killed bin Laden? That was big, but we’ve got an announcement that’s even bigger.”
Earlier today, the super PAC, which is satirically designed to promote awareness about campaign finance reform, recently released a campaign ad attempting to stir up a birther crisis over the UCS presidential candidates’ University acceptance letters. The video’s pretty funny and overtly reinforces the group’s satiric nature; a real super PAC might have enough money to shell out for some better production values.
That being said, you’ve got to like anything that’s sprucing up a presidential race that almost lulled a Herald opinions editor to sleep. Also, we know you all invested $99 in a Colbert Super PAC Super Fun Pack. We want to try a piece of Ham Rove.
