Democrats kill Colbert’s dream of being president

According to the Time:

South Carolina Democrats voted Thursday to keep Stephen Colbert off the ballot.

Colbert, who poses as a conservative host on the Comedy Central show “The Colbert Report,? filed to get on the ballot as a Democratic candidate in his native state South Carolina.

His campaign paid a $2,500 filing fee just before the noon deadline.

After a 40 minute discussion by top party officials, the Democratic executive council voted 13-3 to keep Colbert off the ballot.

The GOP filing fee is $35,000. Democrats say Colbert will get his $2,500 back.
