Finally, Truthiness In The Oval Office

Stephen Colbert announced his candidacy for president last night. It didn't exactly send shock waves throughout the media, but there were a few smiles reflected in iGoogle pages of 20-somethings everywhere.

I don't really catch The Colbert Report because I have difficult time watching him so accurately portray a jingoistic, pompous pundit. Regardless of my personal opinions, Colbert brings news and a smile to his throngs of viewers and fans. He must be doing something right.

As for right now, Colbert's only running in South Carolina, his own state. Will it shake things up? Probably not. Hopefully it will expose some of the ridiculousness that is the Presidential Election. Plus, it will make for great comedy and T-Shirts/Bumper stickers along the way.

But if this whole things turns in to Man of the Year ...I'm out.
