Frankly I'd name the toilet something like Ann Colutre or Rush Limbaugh.

I suppose that's a nice compromise. There's no way in hell they are naming an ISS module after colbert.

"Come on, Serenity?" Colbert said on his March 10 show. "That's not a space module, that's a Glade plug-in."
Oh, Stephen. I expected better of you!

I think Obama would be a more suitable name for the commode.
