Stephen Colbert won't sign "Paul Schmelzer"

My world's all topsy-turvy: Michele Bachmann, the conservative Congress member whose values are almost entirely divergent from my own, agreed to sign my name as part of my Signifier/Signed project, but Stephen Colbert, whose entire television persona hinges on borrowing the characteristics of others (namely, O'Reilly-esque conservatives not unlike Bachmann) won't.

He signed a blank letter, with a field for his signature?

I dunno, I think that's totally fitting for his persona. He's an even bigger asshole than O'Reilly
