Fake news anchor Stephen Colbert has popularized the rise of super PACs and their influence on this election cycle, taking time on his show to satirize the ridiculously toothless regulations on “non-coordination” between the non-campaign organizations and the candidates they support. He even started his own super PAC — Americans for a Better Tomorrow Tomorrow — which has raised at least $1 million, and was more popular among Texas donors than the super PAC supporting Mitt Romney.
Last night, Colbert talked about his super PAC’s popularity among college students and introduced the “Colbert Super PAC Super Fun Pac…a do-it-yourself super PAC kit. All you need is a burning desire for civic engagement and $99.”

Colbert gave prospective super PAC DIYers some big incentives to join, including a t-shirt:
“You can say I influenced the 2012 presidential election and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.”
