Get ready, America: Stephen Colbert could be South Carolina's new senator!
The Comedy Central funnyman joked about his potential new gig on Thursday's Colbert Report. (Because Sen. Jim DeMint is resigning at the end of 2012, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will choose a replacement for the Tea Party favorite.)
Colbert, a South Carolina native, pointed out that the governor is "a friend of the show." He also jokingly acknowledged the Colbert for Senate Web page and Twitter account (neither of which is affiliated with him or his show).
