Smooth operator:  Stephen Colbert looks to push voters’ buttons on Mike Huckabee’s behalf.

On behalf of his faux-fave candidate, (real) Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee, pseudo-pundit Stephen Colbert performs his own brand of negative campaigning, taking to the phones to quiz voters about how their potential support for Huckabee rival John McCain might change if McCain were to have fathered an “illegitimate pirate baby,” among other alarming scenarios.

Unlike Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert has not missed a beat during the writer’s strike.  Apparently, the only writer he needs is himself.

Please don’t publicize and re-air the work of Mr. Colbert and Mr. Stewart.  They’re funny.  They offer insight.  They are also WGA members writing for a struck company during a WGA strike.  They encourage their guests to cross WGA picket lines.  They are prolonging a labor strike in which many people are being hurt.  They are getting paid while their union brothers and sisters are not working.

Unfortunately, Colbert, Stewart, and the correspondents that are writing with them are scabs.
