    Oh, man... that is just too funny. Bravo, Stephen. I guess that it makes up for him losing the Grammy.
    Colbert is one of those perfect chameleons. I both love and hate the character, but the actor behind the character is incredibly brilliant.

    You know... when you think about it, NASA may be well served to go with Colbert. It would be great publicity. I think it might help to counter the stuffiness factor; that it would help to connect with the public. They would probably get more exposure with Colbert than we've seen since the first shuttle launched. He would abosolutely eat it up. He would go ballistic!!!

    HEY!

    I am PROUD to have voted for Colbert for that new Pod! They were gonna go with "Serenity" or "Xenu" otherwise! Be aware that the pod is for the processing of waste material! The browncoats don't want that now do they really?

    Edit: actually, "Mr. Splashypants" might be the perfect name for the waste pod. Point taken.

    Meanwhile, during all of this hullaballoo about the ISS pod, Colbert got himself knighted by Queen Noor of Jordan. He is now Sir Doctor Stephen T. Colbert, DFA.

    This man is on my short list of favorite people.

    We find out tomorrow.

    If Colbert wins, does that mean that we have a Colbert Orbit as well as a Colbert Nation?
