The race to be the next President of the United States might now come down to Barack Obama and…Stephen Colbert?
The Comedy Central funny man announced his intention to run for president of the “United States of America of South Carolina” at the taping of his show Thursday night and will try to compete in South Carolina’s GOP primary Jan. 21.
“I’m proud to announce I plan to form an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for my candidacy,” Colbert said.
I don’t watch much Stephen Colbert. I get it. He’s a sarcastic late night guy who takes a semi-serious look at politics and the news. However, he was pretty funny in this cameo on CYE, so maybe he has a shot.
Surprising to find out that he is a South Carolina native. I really thought that he was from Wellesley.
…Mitt Romney of the Cranbrook School in Michigan, and graduated in 1965. Many of his classmates were from more wealthy backgrounds, and Romney was the only Mormon at Cranbrook. Despite this, Mitt won an award for those “whose contributions to school life are often not fully recognized through already existing channels”.
According to Wikipedia, Romney wasn’t a standout student nor a star athlete. He must have been a late bloomer, because he went from Stanford to BYU, and then to Harvard School of Business and Harvard Law.
Of course, we all know him as the former Governor of Massachusetts, and current Republican candidate for US President.
True story: all five of his boy’s attended Belmont Hill School, an all-boy’s prep school in MA.
La Redoute, a popular French clothing company, released a promotional ad for their children’s line. The photo, posted on the mail-order chain’s website, showed four kids in colorful beachwear…and a man in his birthday suit off in the distance. The French are notoriously comfortable with public nudity on shorelines; but that may change thanks to this absent-minded mishap.
Yes, that’s what you see. Kids on the beach. A guy. In the water. Naked.
