Humor us here. Republican Senator and Tea Party favorite Jim DeMint from South Carolina unexpectedly announced that he's retiring from Senate. And Stephen Colbert fans want the empty seat filled with the political satirist, who's originally from South Carolina.

In fact, fans of Stephen Colbert have launched a campaign that's recently gone viral in order to convince South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley to select the "Colbert Report" comedian as DeMint’s successor. (Since DeMint is leaving so suddenly, Governor Haley has the responsibility of picking his replacement.) So, what do you think? Should Stephen Colbert be a senator?

IBTIMES.COM reports:
Fans of Stephen Colbert are calling on South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to appoint the political satirist to the U.S. Senate as Jim DeMint's replacement.

    Why not? If AL Franken can be a Senator the bar couldn't be set very high at all!

    I like Colbert, but the job of a senator should have some experience behind it. Why not try for city council first?

    Having a camera stuck to your face does not qualify you to lead. Unfortunately, liberals in the entertainment industry equate their celebrity popularity to leadership popularity. Not even close....

    Stephen would leap over the low bar that seems to be set for the average senator

    If he genuinely wants to, I would support him more than my own state's senators. He's easily one of the most intelligent, well-informed public figures, today, and when he's out of character has no trouble backing up his arguments with sound facts and logic.

    But he might be doing more good where he is, being a news source to get young people interested, and an entertaining fact checker.
