Stephen Colbert poses with Steve Marsh at Pizzeria Caldera.

As if last weekend’s wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel didn’t create enough celebrity buzz, Stephen Colbert appears to be in Jackson Hole on vacation. He stopped in for a bite recently at Pizzeria Caldera.

His Super PAC hasn’t made a donation to my campaign. Yet.

Colbert cuts on Wyoming Christmas tree

By Jim Stanford on December 6, 2010

Comments: 16 Comments

The 2010 Capitol Christmas Tree, from the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, made the Colbert Report last week, when the acerbic host poked fun at the ballyhooed tree’s Twitter feed. The tree also has its own Facebook page and blog (and at least three web sites), prompting Faux News to call it “perhaps the hippest, most technology-savvy tree to grace the Capitol ground.”

The cutting of the 83-year-old Engelmann spruce at Pacific Creek and commencement of its journey inspired no small amount of media slobbering.

Count me among the Scrooges who question spending $300,000 or more to ship a 67-foot-tall tree 4,800 miles from Wyoming to D.C. Not to mention the environmental toll of said effort, and the cost of flying officials — Gov. Dave Freudenthal, for instance — to attend the tree lighting, which is tomorrow.

(Note: Gov Dave is not attending the ceremony, although one of the tree’s many websites reported he would.)

for the homophobes in the Wyoming Legislature

The Colbert Coalition’s Anti-Gay Marriage Ad

True, lawmakers from the “Equality State” did vote down an anti-gay marriage bill this session, but the measure never should have wasted as much time and attention as it did.

Fortunately, Stephen Colbert is here to put the issue in perspective and take on the gay storm before it sweeps Wyoming.

Colbert spots cougar as Lummis eyes meat

If only U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., had taken a scenic float trip down the Snake River, she would know that the pronghorn — the correct scientific name for antelope — is the fastest land animal in North America.

Wyoming’s lone congresswoman was a good sport as Stephen Colbert poked fun at her and the Cowboy, er, Equality State last night.

Would Gary Trauner have been funnier?
