"American Idiot": What Should Be Stephen Colbert's Campaign Song?

Posted: Updated:

I think I speak for all Americans -- okay, for literally dozens of them -- when I say the prospect of Stephen Colbert formally entering the Republican race makes it feels a lot like the day before it's morning in America again. I cannot wait to support and even give some of my own non-Bain capital to Colbert -- a man who has the potential to be the funniest candidate for President since Michele "Shecky" Bachmann left the race, presumably and work out some new material in the Far Right comedy clubs. Here then -- for Mr. Colbert and Jon Stewart who controls his super PAC -- are some right-minded suggestions for campaign theme songs that will help the candidate establish a deeper rapport with the American people - or is that a report?
