Mr. President?


Stephen Colbert announced last night that he will be running for President of the United States, in South Carolina. Read the news story here.

Notice that the news story gets the title of his book wrong. It's not "I Am American (And So Can You!)"; it's I Am AMERICA (And So Can You).

I will endorse this candidate if he promises to make me Secretary of Birds if he wins. Otherwise, I'm sticking with Dave Barry, who (and I am not making this up) really did promise to make me Secretary of Birds if HE is elected president. You can hear all about it on this 12-minute radio interview, along with solid proof that I'm no Terry Gross. You can also read the Dave Barry's Christmas Gift-Buying Guide entry about the nighthawk tapeworm I gave him here.

  1. I scanned Dave Bary's new book at Costco last night- it looks funny.

  2. Cool! I didn't know he had a new one out. I'll read through it, pull out all the bird references, and get another interview with him!

  3. Hi Laura,

    I came over from Lynne's. I'm glad I did! Your photography is fantastic - I'm especially fond of your Great Blue Heron photos.

    And...I love Dave Barry.

    Your book sounds great and I will look into it!

    Great Blog.

    Mary
