We weren't the only people who noticed how much audiences at the GOP Presidential debates seem to love death. On his show Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert took note of how much conservatives love Rick "234 Executions" Perry and how they cheered for death at the Tea Party debate.

Even though Perry (who Colbert affectionately dubs "The Barry Bonds of execution") looks like the frontrunner, it's still hard to tell who will win the republican nomination for 2012. One thing is clear though, at least to Colbert. The Grim Reaper would make the PERFECT running mate for any candidate.

Watch the clip below to hear how Colbert came to this conclusion (Hint: it has to do with how badly he wants to get rid of Obamacare). We have to admit it sounds like Death would have the winning ticket.
