Okay, it’s a longshot, but check this out:
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. DeMint is leaving the Senate in January to run the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.
Yes, Colbert was the number one choice of those polled.
Again, a longshot, but hey, it sure would be fun.
