Stephen Colbert Starts His Own Rick Scott Letter Writing Campaign
In a miscalculated move to try and boast public support, Florida Gov. Rick Scott's website asked his fervent supporters, all five of them, to sign their name to a pre-written letter and send them off to Florida's newspapers letter to the editor section.
Well, at least one fake conservative pundit is impressed: Stephen Colbert. The Comedy Central host has actually decided to do Rick Scott one better and has put up his own pre-written letter on his website. Though, he seems to trust the writing skills of Floridians a bit more, and lets them fill in certain words in the letter for themselves, Mad Llibs style.

Few audiences are quite as devoted as Colbert's, so we're not sure who we should feel a slight bit of sympathy for: Scott, or the newspaper interns who have to wade through all the incoming letters.
