"The Colbert Report" host Stephen Colbert announced that he will be running for President in 2008. Considering his late entry into the race and the fact that he's joining an already crowded field, Colbert said that he'll run in South Carolina and only campaign in that state. He also said he would run as a Democrat and a Republican, so that he could "lose twice."
Said Colbert, "After nearly 15 minutes of soul searching, I have heard the call. Nation, I will seek the office of the president of the United States. I am doing it! I am from South Carolina, I am for South Carolina and I defy any other candidate to pander more to the people of South Carolina."Stephen Colbert is one of the funniest guys in TV land and I think he's got what it takes to give this country the swift ass-kicking it needs. Finally, a guy I can vote for without second thoughts.
