Washington, DC (USA Today) -- Ah, Colbert Nation, where have you gone?

The super PAC of Stephen Colbert reported it raised only $33,162 in February, well behind it's six-figure haul the month before, according to its latest filing with the Federal Election Commission.

But Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow -- as the political action committee is formally known -- still has about $780,000 in the bank if the Comedy Channel host wants to skewer presidential politics once again.

To recap: Colbert launched the super PAC as a way to shed light on the arcane nature of campaign finance laws. He briefly launched a faux presidential bid before the primaries in his native South Carolina, ran a TV ad and held a rally with Herman Cain.

The disbursements section of the super PAC report shows Colbert spends money the way any politician does: mostly on media consulting and a little for web services, for oughly $17,442 total in February.

Colbert's super PAC filing was first reported by Politico.
