Naming a space station after a comedian... Makes me think of a song... AMERICA, FUCK YEAH! COMIN' IN TO SAVE THE MOTHERFUCKIN' DAY YEAH!... With a picture of Colbert. He's a hero and symbol of AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!

NASA is an organization that needs public support. They would get more limelight if they took the name of Colbert. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.103.191.187 (talk) 21:49, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Recommend the second sentence be: After using his Comedy Central show The Colbert Report to call on fans to vote in the contest, the write-in name "Colbert" topped the poll with 230,539 votes.

Reasoning is that a blue link can now be added toCOBERT, for the treadmill. Thanks. Shoessss (talk) 23:23, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
