Stephen Colbert as New York Times Columnist?

The departure last week of conservative journalist Bill Kristol from the New York Times has New York magazine asking who will be next? 

“It’s not that “Times readers don’t like conservatives,” writes Jennifer Senior. “They just like conservatives they can take home and introduce to their families (or maybe Paul Krugman’s family).” Senior speculates that the next move will be to reach out to Christopher Caldwell or Ross Douthat or Megan McArdle— “and maybe that’ll work out.” But if the paper is smart, she thinks, they should recruit Stephen Colbert.
