A little excerpt from the 1,000,000 Strong for Stephen T Colbert group description on Facebook:

We did it! It only took us about 8 days to accumulate over 1 million members! Now, we must make sure that Colbert has the biggest group on facebook. The biggest facebook group has approximately 1.7 Million members, lets beat that.

It’s taken Obama’s 1,000,000 Strong Group more than 9 months to get 381,000 members, We beat it in less than 5 days! We overtook them within 5 days!
IMPORTANT: Colbert will only be on the South Carolina Ballot!
Fastest Growing Facebook group to 1,000,000!

We need to keep this up, once you are in this group, try to invite everyone on your friends list to this group to help us reach our goal of making the biggest group!
