Stephen Colbert’s presidential candidacy may be phony, but his supporters are very real.
Late on Oct. 16, immediately after the comedian declared his intentions on his satirical news show “The Colbert Report,” supportive groups began to form on the social networking site Facebook.
One of them — a group created by Raj Vachhani and titled “1,000,000 Strong for Stephen T Colbert” — has grown to more than a million members in just over a week, making it the most popular political group on Facebook by far.
