    Source: His show. He just announced it. Less than a minute ago.

    I'll post more details later when some major website mentions all the details of the politics, but I thought I'd post this now.

    Pretty damn sure. He had his usual comedy stuff going on because it was on his show, but considering he legally transfered his superpac to Jon Stewart (he had his lawyer look up what papers are needed, etc), I'm pretty sure it's serious.

    The guy did this in 08 not seriously though, if he goes in this time seriously he could probably pull out a win. The down side would be, what kind of president would he be?

    I'd vote for him.
    Certainly beats the living hell out of many of the candidates currently on display.

    He does satire politics. No doubt he was joking.

    unfortunately most voters don't understand what satire is.

    more on topic: colbert probably could get most of the student vote which could throw the election.

    A person on TV running for President, that's almost as bad as Julia Gillard :O

    I'd much rather see this guy get the votes. His vision is actually more accurate than Rent's-Too-Damn-High party's agenda too.

    I think Colbert could be effective if he serious'd up. The problem is, if he puts on any sort of campaign, it's likely going to be comedy based, which would hurt his chances if was seriously playing for all the marbles. I think the public at large knows more about his political tendencies and ideals more than they do most other politicians running, anyways. I wouldn't be surprised if he outplaced most or all of the other minor parties.
