“Lies about his sister,” right. You’re not allowed to say a Democrat candidate is “the Democrat candidate” anymore? What a sniveler.

Democrat. Democrat. Democrat. Own it, loser.

I have never watched his show before, but I don’t get it. I heard he’s supposed to play a caricature of a conservative. How can he be saying stuff like this?

Hey Colbert. Just leave!

Go to the place you think is the best Marxist nation on earth, and reap the just rewards.

One day in the future, say 2033, Colbert's fans (Letterman's too) will watch old copies of his shows and feel like I did when watching old old SNL tapes: The routines and jokes and liners just aren't funny unless you're high.

I suppose Stephen Colbert thought his minor fame would somehow give his politically untested sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, an edge against former S.C. Governor Mark Sanford, who is an experienced politician and knew how to overcome his 4-year-old adultery scandal in a predominately Republican congressional district. Colbert-Busch ran a weak campaign that reflected her political inexperience. Her brother should go back to what he does best - insulting conservatives - and stop whining about his sister’s inevitable loss. No one cares, Stephen.

Don't worry Colbert...your sister will be back doing her “no value added” job for big bucks sucked, directly & indirectly, from the taxpayers who actually do create real wealth in our country. She's off to well-paid irrelevance as yet another non-productive consumer taken care of by our ruling class leeches.

That a low-life, puke Sanford can beat Colbert’s sister shows you that she is beneath pond-scum Sanford. HOORAY voters!

STILL NOT ONE mention of the fact her name was listed on the ballot TWICE.

No mention how he and his sister pronounce their names differently.

The fact sanford won DESPITE every dirty trick by democrats is amazing considering sanford’s baggage.

She must really have been a nutcase.

“meanwhile Weiner will probably have no problem winning his district and he showed off his pecker to the world on twitter”

I think Weiner’s district is gone; I thought it was lost at the same time as Rothman’s in NJ. In the dying states of the northeast, lost electoral votes means lost house seats.

Yeah, what's up with that? His is the French pronunciation and hers is the anglicized version. I wonder which their parents used?

The fact that they're different suggests there might be some funky family dynamics afoot.

He changed it.

Wikipedia says the name was pronounced in the English way, but their father, James William Colbert, Jr., wanted to change it to the French pronunciation, but didn't out of respect for his own father, James Sr. So he left it up to the children to choose their own pronunciation.

This is one of those times when the Wikipedia explanation sounds a little fishy. Or maybe the family is a little fishy.

In the absence of other evidence I’m going to guess the family is fishy. And to me it’s not super surprising that a guy who’s schtick is to parody a conservative would go for the Frenchified version. It would interesting to get inside his head and see what animated that decision.

I used to take comfort in that, until those states themselves are entering the toss-up column. It is a demographic nightmare, and we don’t have to wait until 2050 to watch it unfold.

Well folks are moving to the south or mountain west for one of the reasons being is the lower cost of living.

That is why people left northeastern NJ for the rural south and mountainous west (of NJ); now their costs are rising as they build new schools, hire more gubmint workers, etc.

I hope the low costs of their destinations stay low; they have to understand they are low for a reason, and if they want everything they had in NJ/NY (1 cop per every 10 homes, 1 teacher for every 10 kids, etc.) they’ll end up with the same bill.

As far as I know, the French pronunciation is just a stage name.
