Tweet @nikkihaley & tell her why I belong in the US Senate. For one, I wouldn't just block legislation, I'd body-check it! #SenatorColbert

I know everyone in the Daily Kos community is sad that Jim DeMint (R-SC) is leaving the U.S. Senate at the end of the year in order to head up the Heritage Foundation. However, this unfortunate event is actually an opportunity to make something awesome happen: U.S. Senator Stephen Colbert.

Sign the petition to South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, demanding she appoint Stephen Colbert to fill the soon-to-be vacant U.S. Senate seat in South Carolina.

Here are three reasons why Stephen Colbert should be the next U.S. senator from South Carolina:

  1. He's Stephen Colbert.
  2. He's not Jim DeMint.
  3. He's also not the barbeque chain owner that Gov. Haley is apparently considering.

Need any other reasons? I didn't think so. So visit the website, follow the movement on Twitter, and sign the petition demanding Gov. Haley appoint Stephen Colbert to the U.S. Senate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
