New Presidential Candidate

10/19 Update: Nephos asked for it!

10/18: Finally there is a new candidate on the scene that we can all get behind.

Stephen Colbert has announced his candidacy for president on "The Colbert Report," tossing his satirical hat into the ring of an already crowded race.

"I shall seek the office of the president of the United States," Colbert said Tuesday on his Comedy Central show as red, white and blue balloons fell around him.

Colbert, 43, had recently satirized the coyness of would-be presidential candidates by refusing to disclose whether he would seek the country's highest office — a refusal that often came without any prompting.

Really, could he be any worse than some of the folks running J


  1. Recently got hooked on Colbert. If you are looking to feed your "jones" for Colbert, check out online videos. . . the one with Sean Penn is good.

  2. The fact that a humorous candidacy can be as serious as the real candidates is indicative of what a joke our political system has become.

    Does Colbert have any bumper stickers available yet?

  3. Thank God! My mind is easily made up now. I base all my voting on physical attractiveness, so this is an easy one! We haven't had a candidate this good looking since JFK! (Colbert would completely agree with this assessment, I'm sure!) lol! :)
