2008 Colbert Girl
posted by October 23 at 15:41 PMon
Once Stephen Colbert threw his hat in the ring last week, it was only a matter of time before America got served up a steaming hot slice of Colbert Girl.
Turns out the first—and so far only—video submitted is by Leeni, a Seattle-based singer, songwriter, filmmaker, performance artist, impressionist, and now political pundit. She wrote and recorded her “United States of Colbertica” immediately after Colbert made his announcement last week; the video went up on YouTube and Colbert’s website yesterday. It was partially made on a Nintendo Gameboy.
“I think he’s got a lot to offer the country,” Leeni says of her muse. “There’s not a lot of people I trust. I think he has trustiness as well as truthiness.”
