Speaking of the Colbert Report: the CR "bump"

Democratic politicians report a 40% increase in campaign contributions in the month following appearances on the Colbert Report. Republican politicians... closer to zero.
"Moreover, even a cursory analysis demonstrates that despite being a comedy program The Colbert Report appears to exercise 'disproportionate real world influence' — likely due to the 'elite demographic' of its audience."
That's right - I'm elite. In your face.
