How bad is the super PAC imbalance between pro-Obama and pro-Romney? Pretty bad, if you’re an Obama supporter.
Meet Obama for America Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter (really!) as she hilariously and depressingly rolls out in a new video by comedian Andy Cobb how fucked the campaign is when it comes to fundraising.
“You’ve got me and a green screen against a firehouse of Citizens United money from the richest bastards in the world,” she said.
She whipped out out a flask as an off-camera producer said, “No! Stephanie! No, no, no!”
“The super PAC for Obama brought in $1.58 million, which pays for jack shit,” she said as she continued to drink. “Hey! Let’s look at a graph!”
A graph comparing the $10.57 million the pro-Obama PAC Priorities USA Action raised with the $50-plus million that the pro-Romney Restore Our Future PAC has collected popped up on the screen. Sportscaster-style scrawling simply wrote “We’re doomed” on top of more scribbles on the graf.
“Whoop-de-do!” Cutter exclaimed as she chugged from a jumbo-sized bottle of Skyy Vodka. “You want to go up against the Koch brothers with a MILF and a TelePrompTer? Screw you people!”
She then called the pro-Obama billionaires like George Soros and Warren Buffett (“He even named a rule after you!”) “cheap bastards” and challenged them to donate matching funds to the pro-Obama super PACs or face “whatever our Twitter intern comes up with.”
So surely the money will start flowing right in.
Editor’s note: Just to be super clear, this video is a satire.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Bloomberg for flunking ‘politics 101’ in first debate
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough buried Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance, and thumped big-name Democrats who saw him as the party's political savior.
The "Morning Joe" host said the billionaire and former New York City mayor seemed terribly unprepared for the attacks against his lengthy business and political record, and Scarborough said Bloomberg failed at the most basic skills.
"I think for Democratic professionals who saw this guy as their political savior to save them from Bernie Sanders, they had to be disappointed last night because he was bad in politics 101," Scarborough said. "They'll forgive a candidate that can beat Donald Trump for just about anything, but you're right, it's called a pivot."
Sanders campaign manager accuses MSNBC of ‘constantly undermining’ Bernie: Fox News is ‘more fair’
Faiz Shakir, the campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., claimed that right-leaning Fox News has treated the self-described democratic socialist "more fair" than left-leaning MSNBC.
"Fox is often yelling about Bernie Sanders' socialism, but they're still giving our campaign the opportunity to make our case in a fair manner, unlike MSNBC, which has credibility with the left and is constantly undermining the Bernie Sanders campaign," Shakir told Vanity Fair in an interview published Tuesday.
Michael Bloomberg ‘lost everything’ in Las Vegas: MSNBC analyst
Senior editor for "The Root," Jason Johnson, concluded that the biggest loser of the Democratic debate in Las Vegas Wednesday was Michael Bloomberg, but not merely because of his debate performance.
"The big new name was going to be Michael Bloomberg," he said. "This was probably the most expensive night in Vegas I've ever seen. He lost everything. This guy has spent $320 million. He had the opportunity to stand on stage, and appear to be an equal, and he looked bored. He looked disenchanted. He stumbled over obvious questions that anybody would have anticipated about sexual harassment and stop and frisk. I thought it was a bad night for him."
