Stephen Colbert, truthiness

Thank you Stephen Colbert, from a grateful nation. Now we're going to get some juice in the presidential race. If I could, I would move to South Carolina just so I could vote for him. And enjoy the mountains while there.

Colbert is the first openly gay candidate to run for president. Gay? Yes, as in funny. Already, he has us laughing at the other candidates, who are funny by accident. Sadly.

It took me a while to warm up to Colbert's TV character. I think his performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner won me over. Chutzpah. His humor has the zing of truth. No other candidate is safe now. Joy. Rapture.

Colbert goes both ways. He's going to run in both Democrat and Republican primaries. Funny, but isn't that exactly what we need: someone who can pull us back together?

We have clowns running on both sides. Why do we need another one?

I think I would prefer Bill Miller.

It is Pat Paulsen redux.

Mr. South Plainsman, would that be Bill MAHER who is your alternative favorite? The name Bill Miller makes me hungry for barbecue...
