The joke's on us

Stephen Colbert is trending in South Carolina -- and the favorite son is looking to capture the primary.

Our favorite Comedy Central blowhard is thinking about running for President of the United States of America of South Carolina, giving up control of his own Super PAC to launch the exploratory campaign. He's currently trailing Rick Perry, but has a leg up on Jon Huntsman.

He can't possibly be a bigger joke in a field that includes Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum as exemplars of rectitude and compassion.

Colbert and Jon Stewart have been skillfully skewering our dysfunctional political system for years. There's only one fear: a Colbert victory would certainly highlight what a joke our highest bidder democracy has become.

One man's fear is another man's hope. Frankly, if he bring more attention to this, Colbert has my vote.
