Colbert Framed

Comedian Stephen Colbert has gotten the National Portrait Gallery to take one of his gags seriously.

He's been trying for a week -- on his show -- to get the Smithsonian to take delivery of his "portrait." He's carried the thing into museums all around the National Mall trying to get one of them to take it and hang it up.

The National Portrait Gallery finally bit. Museum honchos agreed to a six week display -- right next to an exhibit called "America's President's." (FOX5)

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming.

The Daily Green just put an article out talking about how the presidential candidates are not being asked where they stand on the issue of the climate change - this is surprising to me considering its such a MAJOR concern to people. I just saw a poll on www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot what their next leader thinks about global warming (after you take it they show you the results). Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

If not, go to http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx and take their poll to see which way the results go. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. No matter which political party you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.
