He’s been dropping hints on his show all week, but he’s finally pulled the trigger! Stephen Colbert is running for president!!!!
He made his announcement last night on his old stomping grounds, The Daily Show, saying that he was considering running for president. About 20 minutes later on his own show he came out and said, “after nearly 15 minutes of soul searching, I’ve heard the call. I shall seek the office of the President of the United States.”
Shortly after (about 3 minutes) he had the CBS political analyst, Jeff Greenfield, come on and analyze his impact on the race (impact meaning the past 3 minutes).
If Stephen ran for president, he’d be a good candidate. He did say he served in the “Marina” Corp. Hey, Marine Corp… Marina Corp… who’s counting? It’s all Semper Fi to me, bitches!
Whether he’s serious or not, he’ll probably get more people voting. After all, let’s not forget that more people vote for their next American Idol than vote for the guy who signs their welfare checks.
President or not, you’re a winner in my book Stephen! Let’s face it, you’re more American than Arnold Schwarzenegger.
