Colbert Denied

I'm sure you know that Colbert has been denied in his quest to run as the Favorite Son of South Carolina. Although none of this is public, I can tell you what the Democratic Committee was discussing.

Position #1: This is making a mockery of South Carolina.
Position #2: This could bring some attention to South Carolina, and therefore, some money.

I can assure you that no one was concerned about whether he fulfilled the requirements to become a candidate. Which he did. This is a perfect example about how politics is run by insiders instead of the people. Colbert submitted the right form, and the right amount of money, and he had more support than a few of the candidates who will be on the ballot, but he was shot down by some committee members no one has heard of.

And if the Democrats are this corrupt, you can only imagine how bad it must be to run as a Republican.

If you like Bob Dylan, but don't have his music, I'd suggest his recent album Dylan. It has most of his classic greats.
