Stephen Colbert to Appear Before FEC Thursday for Ruling on His Super PAC (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert is one step closer to making his Super PAC dreams a reality, and he wants you to be a part of it.

On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), he announced that Thursday morning at 10AM ET he'll be appearing before the FEC.

He's hoping they will grant him a media exemption so that he can use his own resources without implying any links or contributions from his parent company, Viacom. In other words, he's hoping to be able to go crazy in the 2012 election making insane commercials and ads about whatever he wants to, supporting and/or opposing any candidate or issue.

Personally, we can't wait to see what he comes up with should the FEC approve his Super PAC.

Opponents are hoping the FEC shuts him down because Colbert Super PAC could open a "gaping loophole" in existing campaign disclosure laws, according to the AP. We suspect that's exactly what Colbert is trying to do. Expose these kinds of gaping loopholes so that legislation can close them, and sooner rather than later.

Colbert will be meeting his fans, some of whom are reportedly already camping outside the FEC building, at approximately 11AM ET outside the building to let them know what the ruling was. He even gave the address if anyone in the DC area is inclined to go and let us know in 'Comments' below how it went:

Federal Election Commission
999 E Street NW, Washington, DC

Of course, hopefully we'll all hear about it on 'The Colbert Report' Thursday night.
