I called Stephen Colbert with a dare: if he thought it was so easy to be a Times Op-Ed pundit, he should try it. He came right over. I had staged a coup d’moi.
It’s been reported that Stephen Colbert is running for President though only in his native South Carolina. I congratulate Mr. Colbert and wish him well, his candidacy is nearly as serious as any of the other and there can be no doubt that what he says is about as likely to happen as any of the other candidates.
it’s clear that the voters are desperate for a white, male, middle-aged, Jesus-trumpeting alternative.–Stephen Colbert
