    Sure, it would be popular with the majority of Colbert viewers (non-voters and those who get their information primarly through comedy shows).  Wonderful.

    What it actually does however is reduce the social authority of the individual requesting the showing within the body that makes the decisions.  Losing social status to score points with people who will forget about or who don't vote isn't a winning strat for either legislation or reelection.

    Perhaps of Colbert had been outstanding it would have some positive effect.  It was a horrible showing and only invited mockery.  The only line with any insight and positive response was when he leveled a moral attack against all in political office.
