It would appear Stephen Colbert's appearance with Tim Russert on Meet the Press was the top event of the Sunday talk shows.
He's in the South Carolina primary to win -- one delegate -- said Colbert. And though he'd earlier mentioned Mike Huckabee as a possible running mate, he indicated today he might seek someone with higher name recognition -- Sen. Larry Craig.
The NY Times called the appearance "bizarre." More bizarre than yesterday's values coalition/tent revival? I don't think so.
UPDATE: David Carr sees the Colbert appearance as another sign of the waning influence of network news.
