Ladies and gentleman, I would be remiss in my journalistic duties if I didn't return to you to discuss the latest political development in what is commonly known as the carnival of presidential candidates:

Stephen Colbert has announced his candidacy.

I have been meaning to write about it, however our internet at the Humboldt Abode is still rather wonky and doesn't like to work... so I spend my nights playing The Simpson's Hit-n-Run on my shiny new game cube. However, I do work for a reputable news organization, and the buzz around here is that he might actually be serious.

Colbert announced his candidacy on Tuesday, and then coyly danced around the subject while being interviewed by Larry King.

Word on the street is that he will only actually campaign in South Carolina--and that he will run in both parties. Getting in on their early primaries would cost Colbert a sum of $37,500 ($2,500 to be on the Democratic ballot, and the remaining $35,000 to run in the Republican primary.) and he would need to get clearance from South Carolina's State Democratic Party's Executive Committee. Colbert will also need to make his move before the end of this month. It will be interesting to see if he will pony up the dough and jump in the ring.

Until then, you can show your support by joining 1,000,000 Strong for Stephen Colbert, as mentioned in the Washington Post. The group currently holds the record for being the fastest growing group in the history of facebook.

God bless America.

i was reading earlier about this, and actually, there's some election laws he's violating because he has the support of a conglomerate or something. sad.

I watched him on Meet the Press this morning. It was a very strange interview.

My question is, is he running as Stephen Colbert, the TV personality, or Stephen Colbert, average citizen? Nevertheless, it's a great way to show that political affiliation doesn't mean shit anymore, and hey, it might be fun to see that Robin Williams movie come true. :)
