Even though I’m only a part-time resident of Colbert Nation, I am a huge fan of Stephen Colbert’s mock right-wing blowhard persona, and I love it when he fires up his “Nation” to engage in such acts of defiance as stuffing the ballot box in NASA’s space station node naming contest.
Colbert won the contest, but NASA demurred, instead choosing the more typical and spineless “Tranquility” as the node’s name. They did extend an olive branch to Colbert though, in naming the node’s treadmill after him.
Which would be lame, if they hadn’t made it an acronym. Sweet.
