Stephen Colbert to Run for Presidentbndnchrs writes "Everyone's favorite satirist, Stephen Colbert has decided that he is going to run for president of the United States (Well, at least in his home state of South Carolina). Colbert made the announcement on his show tonight, and despite his usual fake-pundit attitude, this is legitimate, and he is planning on filing the necessary papers to get himself on the ballot in South Carolina. Colbert plans to run as both a Democrat and a Republican, which will add an interesting twist to the election. We've seen what small online efforts can do, with the impressive gains of the Ron Paul presidential campaign, but never has a person tried (albeit jokingly) to do this who reaches the amount of people that Colbert does. Will his popular support, and the lage number of people who undoubtedly will not desire any of the possible candidates mean there is a possiblity of us seeing "SC — 8 -Colbert" in the MM in 08?"
