Colbert for Senate?

According to a new poll from Public Policy Polling, Stephen Colbert is the most popular choice to replace Senator Jim DeMint.


Colbert is the choice of 20 percent of registered South Carolina voters polled, Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) sees 15 percent of the total, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) gets 14 percent amd former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford is fourth with 11 percent. The rest of the field is in single digits. Twenty-two percent of Republicans want Scott, and 21 percent of the GOP wants Gowdy. But the rest of the electorate is pro-Colbert.

I’m forced to wonder what portion of the South Carolina electorate is both in favor of Colbert and has no idea that he is mocking them at all times.

In the Senate at the same time. Two brilliant, witty progressives who know how to "work" their audience.

I wonder if they could resist the temptation to play off of each other at times?

Now that would liven things up in the Senate!

3. I'd like to see him file papers in '14 for the seat

Who knows??...without much campaigning, he might even win..

I doubt that he would enjoy the job though.

7. I found this

Colbert is known to live with his wife and children in New Jersey, but both he and wife, Evelyn, hail from Charleston, S.C. A house there is listed in the White Pages under his wife’s name with the qualifier, “Guest House.”

Well-known senators like John Kerry, John McCain and Kent Conrad own
