(Newser) – Jon Huntsman and Stephen Colbert had some fun last night over their respective religions (both of which have been called cults) and income levels (the 1%), spoke some Mandarin, and discussed plans for Colbert to be Huntsman’s running mate. But arguably the most important part of the Colbert Report interview came at the end, when Colbert noted that Huntsman is currently polling around 2%—but that will change now that he has the “Colbert Bump” to look forward to. “You may be at 2%,” Colbert said, but “we’re gonna get you up to whole milk.” Click to see Colbert's current favorite candidate.

I like Huntsman, its just unfortunate that he's too sane to win the republican nomination. I think we'd actually get some intelligent debate for once.

Man. Huntsman is actually a reasonable, articulate, bright person who appears to be able to put morals and what is right for the country before politics. It's a real shame that he has no shot.
