Colbert Girl

posted by on October 23 at 15:41 PM

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.”

Hi. You may have noticed I've been gone for awhile. Things haven't changed.

This isn't good. At all.

Umm, I actually kind of liked this one. There is an actual tune here, which has kinda gotten stuck in my head. But I'm not angry, hmmm.
Won't watch it more than once though.

At least she's hot. Right?

Posted by Gloria | October 23, 2007 4:06 PM

Aw, don't be hatin' on Leeni - she's cute, and sparkly, and has way more musical talent than I do, that's for sure!

I'm going to have nightmares for weeks.

Posted by Amelia | October 23, 2007 4:37 PM

Um, that's sort of funny, but the chorus is eerily reminiscent of a song by another local group called the Billionaires Club...

I concede to the terrorists.

Heck, I think I'll become a terrorist.

She erotically strokes a bear pelt. How can you not love it? And she's hot.

Holy digitally simulated cheap FM mod Batman. And if you are standing with your back to the shore, what sense does it make to point along the shore to illustrate "from shore to shore". Whore.

Wait, this is for serious?

Posted by Greg | October 23, 2007 9:12 PM

You all have no sense of humor or intelligence. This is awesome. And Leeni is hot.

Posted by Erin | October 23, 2007 9:19 PM

Man. You people are jaded.
I think she did a great job! I dare any of you to do it better. Kudos to you, Leeni!!

Posted by lilblackcat | October 23, 2007 9:30 PM

Holy Poop.
I know that Leeni girl. I know I know, it's so annoying knowing so much trivia and then blabbing. Yeah, she opened for the Lust Lab comic woman when I got my Led Zep book signed at that cutesy shop near olive/denny. Yeah, pretty cool use of the nintendo, but pretty much a vapid performance. She's also part of some theater group, or was. Saw it at CHAC a year or so ago. There's just so much star power in this town! Someone really should film a more present day sequel to Idiocracy in Seattle, going straight to video isn't such a bad gig.
Oh yeah, Leeni is an anti-smoking preacher too. One day, I hope, I'll kick the filth, and then it's off this forsaken grid. Sooner the better.

It is just like feminism never happened. Excuse me, I need to go vomit now. At least she's hot right?

Posted by Kristin Bell | October 24, 2007 5:33 AM

Seriously? You all are so critical of this, and I'm sure no one cares less than Leeni herself. People, this is a joke and you're treating it like it's an art show to be judged and picked apart. You're all suckers. Get a life.

And come on, "POTUS, that's just one step down from God". That's funny. Lighten up.

I approve this message.

Posted by My penis | October 24, 2007 7:52 AM

Steve, this is a terrible joke. I couldn't even laugh at her. I felt embarrassed just by watching it. It's terrible. Terrible.

Throwing 'like to see you do better' and anything in defense of her at least trying is nonsensical. Then you have no real place to criticize anything anybody ever does in relation to music and video. You're only defending this trash because you either know her, feel bad for her, or have a soft spot for stupid bitches.

Posted by Mr. Poe | October 24, 2007 8:29 AM

y'all are insane. that was amazing. give me more. i'm going to go watch it again.

Posted by misch | October 24, 2007 8:57 AM

Well, Mr,Poe, I was going to argue with you until I checked out your Myspace profile. You have horrible taste in movies. It is a clear mix of horrible movies with a sprinkle of movies "people are supposed to think are cool." Way to wear the uniform. But I guess you are only 21, so what do you know about taste? We can debate good vs bad when you are not so wet behind the ears. See ya in ten or so years kiddo.

Posted by Donita | October 24, 2007 9:44 AM

Hey, she's from must be good right? Or okay? Um.....

Posted by idaho | October 24, 2007 9:54 AM

Oh the earnest people of Seattle! Lighten up. This is a joke!!!! And it's pretty damn funny.

Posted by sadie | October 24, 2007 9:58 AM

It's the next day and it's still not funny at all.

Posted by Larry Craig. | October 24, 2007 10:14 AM

Mr. Poe jus' got schooled!

Posted by BillyBob | October 24, 2007 11:41 AM

Have to agree with Larry, this is still lame.

Posted by Will in Seattle | October 24, 2007 11:43 AM

I know it was a joke and I love your show, but this "short film" was tooooo long on boring and to short on funny......Sorry.

Posted by Just Looking | October 25, 2007 3:44 AM

The shit is cute. Fucking lighten up. It's just a fun toss-off.

Now if I could get the goddamn tune out of my head I might be able to sleep...

Posted by MIzjames | October 25, 2007 9:45 AM

All of the movies I like are amazing. Because I like them.

If you watch this and think that talent is knockin' on the door, you are a moron. And you are wrong.

Everything I say, do, and like is absolute. Don't forget it.

Posted by Mr. Poe | October 25, 2007 7:03 PM

Look, papa! A bunch know-it-all 20-year-olds who are to cool for their shit!

Posted by Eye Roller | October 26, 2007 10:27 AM

And papa, they are *too* cool for their shit, as well!

Posted by Eye Roller | October 26, 2007 10:29 AM

Not funny. Not good. Keep your hands off my man!
