Stephen Colbert for president

Posted on

So, after weeks of teasing, Stephen Colbert has finally thrown his hat in the presidential ring. (He announced his candidacy last night; see below.) Normally, we at EW would be opposed to this move — if he gets elected, what will happen to his show? That’s too great a sacrifice for us to sanction, even if Colbert’s leadership would benefit the American people. Fortunately, this is Colbert we’re talking about; if the guy can debate himself, as he does occasionally on his show, then he can run the country and still find time to do The Colbert Report every night. Godspeed, Stephen.
