    Is voting for Stephen Colbert akin to voting for 'none of the above'?

    There have been other actors, wrestlers and stand up acts that later went to government service - Al Franken, Jesse Ventura & Ronald Reagan

    At this point, pretty much.  But you would be doing so with increased style and wit, were you so to vote.

    People really do believe everything they read don't they? Fox has done their job.

    It is not a serious campaign...

    Colbert is much more brilliant than most politicians hands down.  Just because his show isn't serious doesn't mean he couldn't make a serious difference.  I'd vote for him just because we need a drastic change so badly, and revel in whatever happened.  Whatever at all!

    Yup! It's a wasted vote.
    BTW Hulk Hogan almost ran for pres. once. i would have loved to see that!

    Personally, I think this man is a foul mouthed, wannabee comedian that needs to learn the fine lines  between trying to be funny and decency and respect.
    I'd just as soon see Check Berry in the White House...

    Yes definitely.  Voting for Colbert screams, "your corporate politicians suck, and your entire government by corporations suck."

    Actually, Colbert's intentions are greater than a simple "none of the above" vote. In South Carolina you can vote in the primary regardless of your party allegiance. Colbert has requested that voters vote for Herman Cain since he cannot get on the ballot. Imagine a primary in which Herman Cain garners the majority of votes. The act itself will set the entire primary system on its ear.
