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.

Certainly, Ron Paul might not be his first choice, but Stephen Colbert picks Ron Paul out of the Republican Candidates.He says that Ron Paul is "admirable", "intellectually consistent", that "he doesn't change with the winds".http://www.dailypaul.com/206166/stephen...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1T75jBYeCsDid anyone get to see this yet? Stephen Colbert testifies to congress that America relies on migrant farm workers to produce and pick our crops. He did it all in character. I personally thought it was hilarious. Others may be angry that we "wasted tax...

Do you think Stephen Colbert will have the long lasting career on The Late Show like Lettermen?

And is it a coincidence that they are having it a day before Halloween? Perhaps it's in preparation for a massive Halloween trick - if you don't vote dem on Election Day, they'll paper toilet your house
