The political action committee associated with (but not directed by) Stephen Colbert has come out firing in its first ad, accusing frontrunner for the Republican nomination Mitt Romney of actually being a “serial killer.” So much for politics as usual!

Colbert’s PAC was able to come to this extreme allegation through some clever — if not entirely convincing – wordplay. You see, Mitt Romney once made the statement that “corporations are people.” Following this logic, the Colbert ad argues that since the Romney-led Bain Capital “carved up” and “got rid off” some of the corporations they invested in, this makes Romney a serial killer.

Watch Colbert put the heat on “Mitt The Ripper” below.
