PPP: South Carolina voters want Stephen Colbert - Kevin Robillard - POLITICO.com
QuoteQuote:
One-fifth of South Carolinians want late-night comedian Stephen Colbert to replace Jim DeMint in the Senate, according to a poll released Monday.

There are four candidates Gov. Nikki Haley could appoint to DeMint’s seat who have the support of at least 10 percent of Palmetto State voters, according to the Public Policy Polling survey.

Well speaking of humor............

QuoteQuote:
The House Republicans' plan to avoid a fiscal cliff is being criticized as being short on specifics. In a nutshell it calls for “Raising some dough, now or later, by means of doing this or possibly that, now or then, or maybe down the road. Or not.”
QuoteQuote:
Members of the media are calling on our leaders to begin acting like adults in the fiscal cliff debate. I don't know that it's working. At last report Obama was pouting, John Boehner was petulant and Sarah Palin is calling everybody “wusses.”
QuoteQuote:
* According to one report, fiscal cliff talks are going better than expected. Instead of an unmitigated disaster they're only an abject disappointment.
QuoteQuote:
* Mitt Romney met with Manny Pacquiao before Pacquiao's stunning upset knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez Saturday night. If you're keeping track, Romney has replaced the black cat as the international symbol of bad luck.

I'd miss his TV show... but the precedent (Al Franken) is a good one. But which party would Colbert be with? As his character, he'd be Republican... but as is private self, he'd be Democrat? Would it be the character that is nominated, or the private self?

Some of these unlikely candidates sometimes surprise us after getting elected. Take a long look at both houses of Congress. Colbert starts looking pretty good.

There's a long list of former entertainers in politics. While some may complain that they aren't "qualified", look at the mess we currently have with an overwhelming majority of lawyers running things. I'm not really aware of any former entertainers or sports figures who have turned out to be totally incompetent. Here in NY, we even had Grandpa Munster as a candidate for Governor and a long time spokesman for the Green Party.

80% don't want him. That means more than 80% don't want any of the others.
