The Ames Straw Poll this Saturday will gauge what Iowa Republicans think of the field of GOP presidential candidates, but there's a twist planned this year! For the first time, organizers are allowing write-in votes for as-of-yet undeclared candidates, like hard-praying Texas Gov. Rick Perry. This won't change the fact the poll is a pretty meaningless exercise. Unless, that is, Perry megafan Stephen Colbert and his freshly funded Super PAC have anything to do with it, as he explained on tonight's Report.
