… Yet 
On December 10, 2012, Stephen Colbert Claimed Nikki Haley Should Be Disqualified ForOffice Because She Did Not Know The State Amphibian, The Spotted Salamander.
COLBERT:
“Because if getting a South Carolina trivia fact wrong
disqualifies you for office, then Nikki Haley would
have stepped down after saying this. [Video Clip Begins] COLBERT: What’s the state am
phibian? HALEY:
Ooh. COLBERT: Oh, how’s it feel when the spiked shoe is on the other foot? It’s the spotted salamander.[Video Clip Ends]. Oh, do you know the state dish governor? It’s revenge. Best served cold with a side of 
salamander milk. So nation, do
not give up the fight. Keep tweeting Governor Haley why I’d make an idealsenator using the hashtag #SpottedSalamander.”

 Stephen Colbert Claimed H
e Would “
Stumble Around Columbia, The Capital, Like, Pantless With ABottle Of Jack Daniels And Try To Get Arrested;
 TERRY GROSS:
 
So I always have to ask myself when you do that, when you're either on the ballot orhave a surrogate on the ballot, like is that going too far? Is that actually injecting it into the voting boothin a way that might actually change the results of an election?
 
 
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
I mean if I actually thought I would change the results of the election, I think Iwould - I would think I was going too far, but I never for a moment thought I would change the results of the election and I think I was right.
 
TERRY GROSS:
 
Because you wouldn't get enough votes to make a difference?
 
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
No, I would never get enough votes.
 
TERRY GROSS:
 
With elections being so close in some places?
 
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
Not in South Carolina.
 
TERRY GROSS:
 
Not in South Carolina.
 
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
Just the Republicans. I don't know what to say.
 
TERRY GROSS:
 
Yeah, right.
 
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
You know, even in - even four years ago when I was running in 2008 in SouthCarolina and really sincerely like tried to get on the ballot, if I was doing well, I had a plan of how to dropout, which was that I was going to have a scandal.
 (LAUGHTER)
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
I was going to like...
 
TERRY GROSS:
 
Oh, I'm sorry you didn't get a chance.
 
STEPHEN COLBERT:
 
I know. Wasn't that exciting? I would've been wonderful. I wanted to like actuallygo down to South Carolina and like stumble around Columbia, the capital, like pantless with a bottle of Jack Daniels and try to get arrested.
