A Sad Day for Colbert
I have blogged a few times about The Colbert Report's Stephen Colbert attempt to get on the ballot for the presidential primaries. Just recently, after much "sucking up" as he puts it, to the democratic executive council, Stephen Colbert finds out on his show that he did not get on the democratic ballot in South Carolina. The funnyman gets a phone call from Carol Fowler, the chair of the democratic committee in South Carolina who gives him the bad news. Stephen Colbert ends the televised phone conversation by asking Carol Fowler to "give his best" to the people of South Carolina and that he will "see the other candidates in hell."According to an article on CNN's website, Colbert won't try to get on the republican ballot as there is a $35,000 fee.
