Colbert Announces S. Carolina Presidency Plans

MSNBC.COM - He's doing it!! That's right, Stephen Colbert, political pundit extraordinaire and host of "The Colbert Report," could be in the running to be the next president of the United States of South Carolina ... again.  

Here's how it all went down:  

First, Colbert consulted with former FEC Commissioner and General Counsel to the McCain campaign, Trevor Potter. "Can I run for president and keep my Super PAC?" he asked.  

No, you can't. Apparently, you can't be a candidate and run a Super PAC because that would be coordinating with oneself. So, Colbert found the perfect person to trust with his Super PAC -- "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart.  

After resolving that they can still be business partners (not to worry, plans to open up bagel shop/travel agency "From Schmear to Eternity" are still in tact), the two legally -- and awkwardly through a joint surge of greenish electricity radiating from their bodies --  signed an agreement of non-coordination.  

That's when Colbert made his announcement. He told the world that he is forming an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork for his possible candidacy for president of the United States of South Carolina.  

Oh yeah, this just got real.    

Back on his own show, Jon Stewart began with the tale of one Newton Leroy Gingrich and his fall from grace. Thanks in large part to his inaccuracies about the Welfare program, the NAACP, and African-Americans in general, Gingrich slipped into fourth place. Stewart affectionately deemed him the president of "Fourthlandia."  click here to read more
