Stephen Colbert last night took on Monday’s Republican National Committee chair debate, deeming Wisconsin GOP chair Reince Priebus as the candidate to beat.

“Folks, this could be the perfect name for the chairman of the RNC, which I believe is pronounced “‘Reince,'” Colbert said.[TPM SLIDESHOW: Sanest Of The Sane? Top 25 Signs From The Stewart/Colbert Rally]

“Although, at first hearing, Reince Priebus sounds like what you say to a cop who pulled you over when you were stoned,” Colbert added.

Colbert continued to struggle with the exact pronunciation of Priebus’ full name before admitting he would really like to see Priebus on a presidential ticket with Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA).
