Comedian Stephen Colbert knows a great presidential ticket when he sees one. This time, it's all about Texas Governor Rick Perry and God.
Rick Perry, Stephen Colbert wants you to run for president.
The field of GOP presidential hopefuls includes more than a dozen announced candidates — right and even more right — but one wily Republican has yet to join the fray. The host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report said that of all the potential candidates, he is most intrigued by the thus-far-noncommittal Texas governor.
“I completely agree,” Colbert said Tuesday night. “This man needs to be president. We haven’t had a Texas governor in the White House for almost three years.”
The comedian also talked about Perry’s Aug. 6 prayer rally in Houston, his latest “call” language and the governor’s 2010 (Wile E.) coyote confrontation.
