In an e-mail to supporters of Stephen Colbert's SuperPAC, the comedian announced he'll be airing a second television ad touting his fake candidate, "Rick Parry," starting tonight. Colbert's first political ad Colbert-SuperPAC-corny.jpgparodied an anti-gay marriage ad from NOM; it debuted yesterday.

It feels like only yesterday Colbert Super PAC was launching our first in a then-one-part-series of commercials leading up to the Ames Iowa Straw Poll. But here we are, one tomorrow later, and Colbert Super PAC has just released its second in a thus-far-two-part series of commercials in support of Rick Parry.

As we speak, this ad will be running later tonight in Iowa. As a special prize, one random Super Pac Member will get the honor of viewing the commercial early. The lucky winner is: Terrence Chau! If you are Terrence, congratulations! Click here to view the ad before anyone else. If you are not Terrence, please, do not click on that link. We're on an honor system here.

You don't see this kind of advertising every day, although there may or may not be another one tomorrow. We need your continued support to purchase only the finest stock footage of corn and smiling Midwesterners. So please, won't you open your hearts to Colbert SuperPAC? And more importantly, won't you open your wallets, and if necessary, a new line of credit? With your help, we'll get one day closer to Making a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow.

The ad is after the break. It's, well, corny.
