Colbert to Iowa Republicans: Write In 'Rick Parry'

TV satirist Stephen Colbert's political action committee is out with it's first ad, taking aim at Governor Rick Perry, ahead of this weekend's Iowa Straw Poll.

In the video, Colbert's "super" PAC, which can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money supporting or opposing a candidate, urges Iowa Republicans to write in the name "Rick Parry" on their straw poll ballots.

"That's Parry with an 'A' for America. With an 'A' for Iowa," the ad says.

Rick Perry is rumored to be planning to make his presidential ambitions clear at an event in South Carolina on Saturday.
