Colbert Super PAC Ad Mocks Anti-Gay Group’s ‘Gathering Storm’ Ad

Stephen Colbert’s Colbert Super PAC has released its first television ad, which will air in Iowa beginning this evening. In it, Colbert calls for attendees of the Ames Straw Poll to write-in Rick Parry — “with an A for America.” The ad pays homage to the National Organization for Marriage’s “Gathering Storm” ad, which was instantly ridiculed when it premiered in 2009 and has been satirized since. Watch NOM’s original ad and Colbert’s new ad:
