After announcing the formation of an exploratory committee to look into his possible presidential candidacy, Stephen Colbert’s been busy making the rounds on news shows. First, he paid a visit to George Stephanopoulos on This Week, which mostly just feels super weird without a studio audience laughing at Colbert’s ridiculousness. George Stephanopoulos isn’t laughing, that’s for sure. Because George Stephanopoulos is a serious journalist and George Stephanopoulos will have no part in these shenanigans! And Ted Koppel seems to feel similarly on Rock Center (below).
How can these guys not find this at all funny? I mean, when asked who he’s looking at for VP, Colbert says, “I’m looking at myself right now. I read in the New York Times last week that there are three Stephen Colberts. One of those two other guys might be a good Vice Presidential candidate.” You gotta admit that’s a good one.
