A Lack of Coordination: Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart Push Ahead in South Carolina

One of the best things about Jon Stewart taking over the Colbert Super PAC, now aptly dubbed The Definitely Not Coordinating with Stephen Colbert Super PAC, is that the two comedians get to push the legal boundaries of what it means to not coordinate.

Here's just one example of non-coordination that aired on last night's episode of The Daily Show:






Seems as non-coordinated as Gingrich's call to the Super PAC supporting his candidacy -- Winning Our Future -- to correct any inaccuracies in the attack videos airing against Mitt Romney. The Colbert/Stewart effort also seems as non-coordinated as Mitt Romney's connections with those running Restore Our Future which has already spent $2.3 million dollars on ads in South Carolina.

I don't know about you, but I'm eager to see some more non-coordination between Stewart and Colbert. Their on-air meetings have added a new twist to the shows and presumably the ratings.
