Khazei Wants Colbert to Come to Massachusetts

Social activist Alan A. Khazei '83, one of four individuals vying to be the Democratic candidate for the late Edward M. Kennedy's '54-'56 senate seat, could be the reason that Stephen Colbert may be coming to a political forum near you. Last Wednesday, Khazei's campaign released a video challenging Colbert to host a debate among the Democratic primary candidates. In the video, Khazei demanded to know if Colbert was "tough enough to come here to Massachusetts—the birthplace of freedom, the birthplace of our democracy—and moderate a debate up against four progressive Democrats." "It's for real," David R. Jacobson, Khazei's deputy communications director, told us. Check out the video—and find out if Colbert has responded—after the jump.
