I will admit, I kind of wanted to see it happen. A comedian, someone who pokes-fun of the political process, to run and win a presidential campaign. Not because of the state we are in but because it would be interesting to see someone with a staff of witty writers go to the White House and help a President deal with whatever it is he deals with on a daily basis.
Yes, Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert won’t be the next President of the United States but it does make me wonder what would be worse these days? A lady that most hate? A black man that no one really knows? A guy that helped out in the 9/11 craziness? I don’t really know.
I am still waiting on the day that we vote for a guy (or gal) that isn’t associated with either Republican or Democrats. That will be the day I think that really shows that enough people have woken up in American to show that they really care about the government and what goes on in Washington. We get screwed more times than not by our leaders but we never seem to do enough about it though.
The dream for Colbert was fun, his shows were more interesting during his time of ‘campaigning’. My vote is still very much undecided at the moment for 2008, and that isn’t a bad thing at all I guess right now.
