Obama supporters pressed SC officials to keep Colbert off ballot

You think he might be afraid of a little competition or maybe he lacks a sense of humor :-)

Two prominent supporters of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign in South Carolina called state Democratic Party officials and urged them to keep funnyman Stephen Colbert's name off the primary ballot, according to party officials and Obama supporters.


The Obama campaign denied any connection to the phone calls.


"I placed the calls as a concerned Democrat, realizing that we are a country in despair," Sellers told CNN. "It is not a time for games or to make a mockery of the process."
The country's in despair? Where? Are you in despair?
