Stephen Colbert announced tonight on his show that he is running for president. He gets my vote! The people of Reddit and Digg helped me anoint Stephen as the greatest living American. Now perhaps we can rally enough support for him to win South Carolina.

Politics are so absurd in America that only comedians actually tell the truth!

Sign the petition and get Stephen to run in all 50 states.
