    On last night's show Stephen Colbert mentioned a bridge being built in Hungary that needs a new name.

    What, make Chuck Norris mad? You know he only has two speeds, walk and kill.

    A Stephen Colbert vs Chuck Norris feud is something too huge for the Internet to contain. 

    I guess the tubes down there in Hungary exploded.

    You just have to try a couple times, it will eventually load. I've attempted to vote for him 8 times, 4 of which the site did not work, 4 of which my vote was successfully cast.

    Hi guys!

    I write to you from Hungary.

    I think this voting for Stephen Colbert is not serious. It's only a good joke. According the hungarian law, no bridge, street, etc. can be named after a living person.

    Have a nice day!

    The final decision will be made by a commitee.

    Anyway, thanks to Mr. Colbert for promoting Hungary in the USA.

    Hungarian-Americans are a much larger group than you might think; the only problem is that they keep getting catagorized as "Bohemian."

    the final decision will be made a committee, but the voting will determine the top three for them to basically choose from. Trickly Americans have then decided to make sure that Jon Stewart and one more non-traditional name make up the top 3, lol. I think that it would the best thing for Hungary to just name it after Colbert, as well, it would be a giant publicity stunt for their nation. Hey, just think, like a zillion Americans now know that in hungarian, "hid" means bridge - see, its already working!

    as someone said somewhere else, no one knows 'exactly' which Stephen Colbert the votes are for as it doesn't specify. As some people who did research, there are a couple 'Stephen Colbert's who are no longer alive that we "may" have been referring to anyway... so... that law can't really hold up. Since it was an original nominating process, unless that one original person can be tracked down, that law is meaningless, as who knows who he was 'really' referring to.

    Colbert is in the lead with 25% of the vote. Surprisingly, Jon Stewart is in second with 23%.

    BEAT THAT CRAIG KILBORN!
