Kermit the Frog Joins the Colbert Nation


Colbert's discussion of the Republican primary in the South would be incomplete without a visit from his new "Chief Swampland Political Analyst," Kermit the Frog. Kermie protests at first, citing the facts that he is a non-partisan "amphibitarian" and only there to promote the release of The Muppets on DVD. But like all Stephen's opponents, he eventually plays ball, giving some incisive predictions about the race. I can't help but wonder if America may be overlooking the perfect candidate right here in Kermit the Frog. He's certainly got the pig vote.
