Welcome Stephen Colbert to NC

Stephen Colbert declared himself a North Carolina native this week during a segment on "The Colbert Report" in which he discussed his sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, losing a congressional election in his home state of South Carolina to former disgraced South Carolina governor Mark Sanford.

The angry Colbert said he felt betrayed by his home state and would turn his back on it. "From now on," he said. "And I never thought I'd say this, I am from North Carolina. No, I have to -- I have to! I'm a Tar Heel now! Whatever the f*#$ that means."

Colbert then went on to profess his love for the state bird, the cardinal (after consulting an Almanac to get the bird's name right). "That's a stupid bird," he said. "But it's mine now."

Me, too, Stephen! I spent the first 18 years of my life in South Carolina. I am proud of my University of South Carolina, but I cannot abide the ultraconservative politics of my native state. Romney beat Obama by 18 points in the House District Sanford just won by 9 points. Charleston is among the last islands of reason in the insanity that is SC.

Speaking of the State Bird...

...did you know that it and other state symbols have been updated to reflect North Carolina's inexorable backward march?
