As it is known, Comedy Central comedian Stephen Colbert recently made “official” his candidacy for president of the USA. According to this dispatch, a new poll suggests that he could be a frontrunner within a month, were his attempt serious!

I have to say that a year ago or so, after watching one of his program emissions where he interviewed Amy Goodman, one of my favorite journalists, I wrote here this guy was a complete disaster. Later on I came across his speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents´ Dinner given a few months earlier: I was not convinced yet. It was not till the beginning of December last year, after the celebration of an out-of-character interview with him held at Harvard (it can be found at google video), when I became as fond of him as everybody was.

As far as the 2008 presidential race is concerned, Colbert´s popularity seems to be inversely proportional to popular confidence in traditional politics and politicians. It is like if people would be saying that they´d rather have a professional comedian in the White House than an improvised one who turned out to be as wicked and dangerous as the one who runs the nation nowadays.
