Stephen Colbert: KU’s honorary student body president
Stephen Colbert is the University of Kansas’ honorary student body president.
Daily Kansan reports
that KU’s student government passed a resolution naming The Colbert
Report host el presidente.
Of course, this was just a successful attention grab by KU student senator Tom Cox.
The next step for Cox is getting Colbert on campus. He’s sending Colbert a copy of the resolution and an invitation. He also wants to get Colbert an engraved gavel.
“I know some people have thought, ‘This is silly; why would we do
this?'” Cox told the Kansan. “My answer is Stephen Colbert is
awesome, and it’s an awesome idea.”
