Stephen Colbert contemplating another presidential run?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.comThe Republican party hasn’t necessarily offered up a substantial candidate to compete against sitting president Barack Obama in the upcoming election. Could it be time for Stephen Colbert to ride to the rescue?

No, this isn’t April Fool’s Day (though it is Friday the 13th, so read into that what you will). And Colbert might be serious when he tells his late-night cable audience that he could throw his hat into the political ring once again and contend for the presidency.

On Thursday evening’s “The Colbert Report,” the host legally cleared the way for a possible campaign by transferring control of his Super PAC over to fellow talk-show host Jon Stewart (who appeared on “Report” and went along with the gag). With that bit of business taken care of, Colbert said that he is forming “an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for my possible candidacy for the president of the United States of South Carolina.”

Sounds crazy? Maybe not. Certain Public Policy Polling surveys actually put Colbert ahead of legitimate candidate Jon Huntsman in South Carolina, according to THR. Is that an insult? It is to Huntsman.

Colbert’s involvement will generate ratings, and confusion. Should he do it? Or leave well enough alone?
