Colbert to Spare America Another Presidential Supreme Court Battle


South Carolina’s native son and Mediabistro golden boa award winner Stephen Colbert made a statement about the South Carolina Democratic Executive Council’s recent vote. An emailed statement from Stephen Colbert to FishbowlNY read:

”I am shocked and saddened by the South Carolina Democratic Executive Council’s 13-to-3 vote to keep me off their presidential primary ballot. Although I lost by the slimmest margin in presidential election history — only ten votes — I have chosen not to put the country through another agonizing Supreme Court battle. It is time for this nation to heal.

”I want say to my supporters, this is not over. While I may accept the decision of the Council, the fight goes on! The dream endures! … And I am going off the air until I can talk about this without weeping.”
