Mr. Colbert, Tear Down This Cool Ranch Flavor Chip Wall

John Edwards should get the nomination just based on this funny press release attacking Stephen Colbert's ties to Big Snack Food.

Edwards spokesperson Teresa Wells also ribbed Colbert for his ties to the snack food industry. Colbert has said his campaign will be sponsored by Doritos.

"What is more troubling than his quest for a status his own mother won't grant him (favorite son) are his ties to the salty food industry," Wells said. "As the candidate of Doritos, his hands are stained by corporate corruption and nacho cheese. John Edwards has never taken a dime from taco chip lobbyists and America deserves a President who isn't in the pocket of the snack food special interests."

This meta campaign is a hell of a lot more fun than the real one.
