Colbert’s Shocking Campaign Announcement

Posted on Oct 17, 2007
Uncle Sam and Colbert

Stephen Colbert is a master of mocking the ridiculous and predictable posturing of overly rehearsed candidates as they announce their intention to run. During his book tour, for example, he has been known to interrupt interviewers to say he’s unable to discuss his campaign intentions, and then there was this surprise appearance on “The Daily Show.”

Stephen Colbert is way too smart to disrupt the election process in a way the would be harmful to our nation.  His goals are to bring in younger voters, expose the craziness of the whole campaign process, and force the real candidates to address the real issues.  If Colbert wins a delegate in either party’s primary he can take part in their national convention and accomplish those goals.  He cares about our country.  I love it!

The question here is: from whom will Colbert drain votes - the Democrats or the Republicans?  Think about it.

Since Colbert is concentrating on South Csrolina, he had better re-connect with his “black friend”.
