Stephen Colbert has announced his candidacy for president on “The Colbert Report,” tossing his satirical hat into the ring of an already crowded race.
Colbert said his final decision would be announced on a “more prestigious show,” which turned out to be his own.
“After nearly 15 minutes of soul-searching, I have heard the call,” said Colbert.
In a guest column for Maureen Dowd in Sunday’s New York Times, Colbert wrote: “I am not ready to announce yet – even though it’s clear that the voters are desperate for a white, male, middle-aged, Jesus-trumpeting alternative.” [/quote]
Is he running as a Republican, Democrat, or independent?
