On 'The Colbert Report,' the outspoken host, who is polling higher than Gov. Jon Huntsman in South Carolina, announced that he was turning his Super PAC over to Jon Stewart and considering a run for president (video below).
Colbert dramatically stated: “For over a day now, the people of South Carolina have been crying out for someone who can restore our nation’s former greatness to its current perfection. Well, America, that someone is now!"
"I am proud to announce that I am forming an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for my possible candidacy for the president of the United States of South Carolina!"
"And with your help, and possibly the help of some sort of outside group that I am not coordinating with, we can explore taking this country back! Thank you. God bless you all! And God bless Citizens United!”
