Colbert Rising In The Polls, Coming To South Carolina October 24, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.
BUT CANDIDATE WILL FACE QUESTIONS OVER HIS “RIGHT EAR LEAN”
FITSNews – October 24, 2007 – Does bi-party presidential candidate Stephen Colbert‘s right ear lean just a little too far to the right?
That’s one of many questions the Comedy Central anchor must answer to the satisfaction of South Carolina voters when he visits Charleston this Saturday for his first Palmetto stop as an official candidate for both the Republican and Democratic presidential nominations.
While our founding editor Sic Willie has already thrown his considerable weight behind Colbert’s candidacy, the FITS girls are still reserving judgment, citing concerns over an “excessively rightward lean” by Colbert’s right ear.
“Maybe if he put some tape behind it that would work,” FITS gal Becca D. suggested.
Some political analysts view Colbert’s “right ear lean” as an opportunity, though, especially in light of the fact that polls show his potential Democratic support currently exceeding that of his natural Republican base.
“He clearly needs to stress the fact that he is leaning toward hearing the voices of drunken right-wing college students as well as those on the left,” said Winthrop University political scientist Scott Huffmon. “Not to mention beer-in-hand college professors.”
