Nobody here even knows what is Colbert's political position. He said once that he goes to a lot of trouble to make sure that his personal preferences and political position remain unknown so that he can attack all sides with equal vigor. For all we know, he could be a closet libertarian, or a silent greenie.

Hell YEAH! He'd be awesome! The real guy, not his character, of course.

He is very brave. He is very smart and also highly educated (masters in philosophy from Northwestern, I think) and has not only the Bible memorized but also Tolkien's work.

But most of all, he is a man of great integrity, compassion, and a passionate commitment to truth. It is rarely seen in public what he does: doing religion well.

Oh, if only.
Colbert is so smart he would run circles around most in the Senate.
Remember Al Franken?
He is another very smart cookie who may be funny but cares a lot for this country.

All he would have to do is broadcast his show from his Senate seat.

I don't think this is a good idea. The Senate wouldn't be able to stop laughing long enough to get anything done. (Maybe this is a setup for a future presidential bid. Like Reagan, like Colbert.)

As a resident of South Carolina I would love that to happen. I do wish DeMint would take Joe Wilson with him.

That would be terrific if Wilson tagged along out of the Senate.

Cold day in he** unless she doesn't understand his sarcasm. Though I see where Obama has a 47 percent approval rating in SC. :Maybe the people there are getting smarter

Nice thought. But, we're still in last or next to last place in education, and Haley keeps vetoing all the education bills. For SC, education is a luxury only for the Romney-ites.

Yeah go look at education studies if you factor in poverty. Countries with low poverty do well. If we remove our poverty factor we are number one. It's about poverty and the south doesn't want to address or admit it. If we worked on poverty education would take care of itself. But no we'd rather bash our education system

In health issues, too. A while ago I did a lot of work for the S.C. Department of Health, and their favorite expression was "Thank God for Mississippi." (so they wouldn't be last place in everything - just next-to-last or penultimate, my favorite word which I don't get to use very often.

Oh for comedy. The next segment should be "pick me" with Steven giving the reasons he should be chosen. Start with. I have my own PAC and go on from there. Maybe If you can't have Hannity or O'reilly pic someone stupid and continue the state's tradition

Do any cable companies in SC even offer Comedy Central? We used to vacation in Myrtle Beach, and the hotels there didn't offer MSNBC or even CNN for news. Of course, Fox "News" was always an option. I have a feeling a lot of South Carolinians have never seen "The Colbert Report".

Give 'em a break. They'd had TV only a few years. You can't hit them with Colbert and CNN all at once, they'll go into culture shock.
