Truthiness 08

This past week Stephen Colbert's "1 million strong for Stephen T Colbert" broke the million mark while Obama's group remains stagnant around 400k. (At the time of this post Colbert's at 1,136,160 members.) What started as a joke has actually got the political world talking. This morning while watching Meet The Press (with Tim "I was still using a dry-erase board in 2000" Russert) they put up a graphic with the latest democratic poll numbers. Shock! As of 10-21-07 Colbert had 2.3% of the vote! That's ahead even of Kucinich! Apparently we don't want our president carrying a pocket constitutional. ANYWAY. I haven't been able to find the actual graphic but here is a story in the Washington Post that cites the same poll:
Considering the rapid growth in popularity on Facebook, it's conceivable that this poll number will grow. The nation is counting on you, South Carolina!

It would be amusing to see how far Colbert could get but I highly doubt it that he would affect the major front runners. Who knows!?
