Vikki Kill Stealed My Mob!
(Insert Grin Here)
It's okay, I stole it from kalynnda13 and the initial discussion here here if you care to read:http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,6606.0.html
But here is the gist of it. As reported above, Stephen Colbert is a huge geek. He literally possess Captain America's Shield. Several years back when Marvel ran the Winter Soldier Arc (which is rumored to be the plotline of the upcoming movie) they had Captain America assassinated. Marvel Editors appeared on The Colbert Report and said Captain America left his shield to Stephen Colbert in his will as Stephen was the only American worthy of carrying on the fight.
Stephen has his own super hero/super spy, Tek Jansen, who had nine 'episodes' aired on the Colbert Report and ran as a five issue special comic from Oni Press.Stephen Colbert is one of us.
The On Air Personality that is Stephen Colbert is on our side. This is exactly the kind of comedy his show does. An American Institution/Company being destroyed by evil communistic forces. Or by communists that don't understand good old American free market economy.
His persona on the show is of a Right Wing commentator who speaks loudly and often about things he doesn't really understand but so long as they feel like they are right, then that's just fine. Under this guise, he has fought for the rights of migrant workers, even traveling to speak before Congressional Hearings on the subject.
More importantly for us, The Colbert Report is a topical show, written daily for production in the evenings, so there is every chance we could get a mention if we can just catch their attention.
So this is the plan. Tweet and Twitter and Splash his Face Book Page with the 'Save CoH' campaign. We need the immediate impact that internet contact can provide. I am not saying "You Can't Write Letters!" but... well the truth is that with the Holidays coming fast, his show will be going into reruns in the next week or so, and we want to get mentioned before that happens.
I do not feel this sort of campaign is out of order. The Twitter Account information is publicly available from Comedy Central's website.

The idea is to try and hit them hard starting tonight/tomorrow morning (depending on your time zone) with the intent of having the Twitter Feed be buzzing with City of Heroes. Some intern has the job of reading the Twitter feed come Monday morning and we want him to have a reason to tell the writers of the show about us.
