From the Los Angeles Times:
Stephen Colbert’s bid to formally join the presidential race in South Carolina was rejected Thursday by the state’s Democratic Party leaders, who said that the late-night comedian’s candidacy would distract from the serious business of picking a presidential nominee.
Serious business? Have they seen the debates so far?
The executive council of the South Carolina Democratic Party voted 13-3 to keep Colbert off the January primary ballot, saying the Comedy Central star did not meet guidelines requiring a candidate to be viable and to campaign actively for the job.

Did ya watch the Democratic “debate” on CNN? Did ya want to smack Wolf Blitzer in the mouth and tell him that it is rude to constantly interrupt people? Maybe we can call Jack Cafferty and ask him to explain to Wolfie…..
