Google Stephen Colbert for President and the first listing (other than news about the announcement of his, uh, candidacy) is Colbertocrat.com. That's the website that launched a petition last year urging Colbert to get in the race, and it's a project of Micah Muzio, a Long Beach–based auto journalist, radio producer, musician and podcaster — he produces the Hudson & Gaines spoof of political talk radio. The site explains:
If America were a 2nd grade craft project, Stephen Colbert would be the delicious paste that holds the red, white and blue painted macaroni of freedom to the America shaped piece of construction paper. As a nation in crisis we need a figure to rise from the ashes, dust himself off and say " America, come unto me, for I shall lick thy wounds and heal thy sorrow."
We here at Colbertocrat.com know that the only thing better than taking action yourself is having someone take action on your behalf. It's called democracy, people. We want to compel Stephen Colbert to run for president.
Here's the petition and its 3,773 names.
