Apparently Stephen Colbert is running for something in Soputh Carolina.
WASHINGTON — Stephen Colbert technically has no chance of winning the GOP primary in South Carolina — but that’s not stopping him from insisting he can.
The Comedy Central host recently transferred control of his super PAC to fellow network host Jon Stewart, so that he is now legally free to explore running for president in his home state of South Carolina.
The move was largely prompted by a survey from Public Policy Polling that showed Colbert has more support than former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who is actually running for president.
Last year Stephen Colbert set up a SuperPAC, the other day he he transferred control of it to fellow Comedy Central faux-newsman Jon Stewart, to set up his own run for president in the South Carolina primary. Now that Stewart is “running” the superPAC, it has started peoducing attack ads against Mitt Romney. The first such ad appears below.
