colbert in the senah?
A lot of South Carolinians apparently want Stephen Colbert as their new Senator, but they won't get him.
Declaring he's available for the S.C. Senate seat which has fallen open, Colbert leads in one poll in South Carolina with 20% of voters saying they like him best. And Colbert's candidacy is legit -- he was born and raised in Charleston.
However, Gov. Nikki Haley will appoint Republican congressman Tim Scott, the guy with 15%, to the seat being vacated by Jim DeMint.
DeMint is leaving to head up the Heritage Foundation, a big and influential D.C.-based fascist agitprop outfit controlled by the Koch Brothers.
