Vast Left Wing Conspiracy

Sorry all you Colbert fans- it might be my fault. I know that when I jump on a bandwagon the trombones may stop, the float can fall apart and a herd of cows will stop the parade.

Not that I'm calling the South Carolina Democratic Committee cattle for not allowing Stephen Colbert to run on the ticket. Perhaps they were upset that he is running as a Republican. Possibly they are concerned about the amount of money they'd have to contribute. There's also the real possibility that he would steal the thunder of some front-running candidates-might make them look a little pompous and predictable by comparison.

At the gym this morning the attendant told me he would change the channel from Fox to CNN only "under protest." I commented that he probably thought CNN was a "vast left-wing conspiracy." He responded that he was sure it was.

Nonsense, I thought. Lefties are way too fractured to be conspiratorial about anything. Now I think they are conspiring not to allow us to see anything funny about our national dilemmas.

But I'm still going to keep my Colbert for President shirt-after all, there's always 2012!
