STEPHAN COLBERT FOR POPE!

Who's with me?

Sigh. It would be plenty of fun for his fans. But he is actually a very principled, caring Catholic and is therefore out of the running.

1. The only thing that disqualifies him is that he's married.

On all other counts, he could 'run'. It's not open to just cardinals but any single Catholic man.

2. That's actually not a bar to the papacy

he would have to be invested as a priest first, and then elevated to monsignor, but those actually can both happen to married men.

3. If his wife would agree to be a nun wouldn't it be ok?

An annulment + two celibacy vows should do the trick.

4. I'm sure they could work something out.

I hope he runs with this one.

Can't wait.
