A new Stephen Colbert Super PAC ad has come out mockingly blasting the political satirist and founder of the Colbert Super PAC.

The new ad came out by the "Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super Pac" on Thursday and features actor Samuel L. Jackson as the narrator.

"America is in crisis and Stephen Colbert is turning our election into a circus," Jackson says at the beginning of the ad.

The humorous ad continues wittily attacking Colbert with Jackson asking, "And come on, why is the 'T' in is name silent? What else is he hiding? Letting murderers out of jail?"

"Enough is enough! I have had it with these money-grubbing Super PACs messing with our money to buy elections," Jackson added.

Following his tirade, the actor offered his endorsement for Herman Cain, the former GOP candidate who dropped out of the race following a slue of highly public scandals regarding sexual harassment claims and questions surrounding his fidelity.

Last night on "The Colbert Report," Stephan Colbert announced that on Friday he will be holding a rally in South Carolina called, "Rock me like a Herman Cain: South Cain-olina Primary Rally."

Colbert announced that Cain will be his special guest at Friday's rally and Cain's media relations director confirmed to Fox News that the former candidate would indeed be taping a segment with Colbert.

In a release about the rally, which will be taking place the day before the South Carolina primary election, Colbert jokes that he is similar to Cain.

"Herman is the only former candidate who truly shares my values. It's like our values were separated at birth. And our ethnics are at least first cousins," Colbert said.

Colbert established his political action committee in which he portrays a conservative political pundit on his popular political satire show, "The Colbert Report."

Last week, the television host made headlines when he announced his plan to set up a committee to explore his run for the "President of the United States of South Carolina."

Although the advertisements and Super PAC dialog has captured much media attention for their whit and humor, they have also attracted some criticism with arguments suggesting that the satirical ads are untruthful and being used unfairly to sway voters.
