Is This The End of Stephen Colbert?

We won’t have the impeccably-coiffed Stephen Colbert to kick around anymore. We have criticized the Colbert Presidential run (with its dubious relationship to Doritos torilla chips), but now that it appears to be over we’re probably going to miss it something fierce. From CNN:

”The South Carolina Democratic Party voted Thursday to keep funnyman Stephen Colbert’s name off the Democratic Primary ballot, according to the party’s executive director.

”The party’s executive council met Thursday afternoon in Columbia to decide which candidates met the criteria to be placed on the ballot, and Colbert didn’t make the cut, executive director Joe Werner said.”

Unless the mediabistro golden-boa award winner can work up some magic, this is likely the end of his Presidential campaign.
