[See NewsBusters for more.] If the Democratic National Committee ever starts an official talk show, and Stephen Colbert wants some additional work, he would be a perfect choice. The Late Night host on Thursday interviewed South Carolina senatorial candidate Jaime Harrison and offered not a single joke during the segment. Instead, he praised the Democrat for his promotion of “hope” and sneered that incumbent Republican Lindsey Graham has no “honor.” After Harrison plugged his website, Colbert cheered, “Nicely slid in there, future senator.”
