He'd have my vote.  But then again, this kidn of thinking would probably screw America.  But hell, if we welcomed one actor to run.... =P

Hooray forColbert!

I still say George Carlin for president.  

I remember many many years ago after Jesse Ventura became a governor of Minnesota, Hulk Hogan said something somewhat jokingly about running for president.  I'd vote for the Hulkster.  

Or better yet, that ugly-ass porn star who ran for California governor for president!

Bleh, this thread reminds me of that god-awful movie Man of the Year.

Still, this is Colbert, so I doubt he'd be as shove-it-down-your-throat as this movie was.

Problem is, Steven Colbert's a fictional character, not just a person. He plays the part of a dyed-in-the-wool conservative as a means of satyrizing the right. We don't laugh at his jokes because we agree with what he's saying, we really don't exactly know WHAT he, the man himself, thinks, only what his character doesn't. John Stewart pretty much plays himself, and when he appears on interviews and drops the act, and he's presented himself as a very charasmatic public speaker above and beyond his usual schtik. Stewart running for an office (likely something lower than president) makes a lot of sense, but until Colbert presents himself, in all that he actually believes (and not just what you're supposed to laugh at), he doesn't make for a very good candidate.

He's still funny as hell, and I know that I probably agree with him on most things, but so far, it's more along the lines of a Doonsbery character running for public office.

But this relates back to the discussion in the vigilante justice thread and how people still can't quite tell the difference between actual reality and television reality.  I remember back when the show The West Wing was on the air and popular; enough people tried to write in votes for Jed Bartlett (the Martin Sheen character), a fictional character, as president.

I bet if Optimus Prime ran for president, every man in the U.S. would vote for him or get laughed at.
