It’s been reported that Stephen Colbert is running for President though only in his native South Carolina. I congratulate Mr. Colbert and wish him well, his candidacy is nearly as serious as any of the other and there can be no doubt that what he says is about as likely to happen as any of the other candidates.

it’s clear that the voters are desperate for a white, male, middle-aged, Jesus-trumpeting alternative.–Stephen Colbert

  1. The irony is that MaureenColbert is absolutely correct. There was an article in the Washington Post just this morning that major evangelical groups have yet to endorse a candidate. Colbert could completely wrap up that demographic.

  2. He does take the wind out of a lot of our nonsense. The bad news is, one time a while back I was watching Colbert while hanging out with a bunch of secular seminarians, and I don’t think they realized it was a satire.

    At least Colbert is a proper Catholic, from all reports.
