Stephen Colbert Just Wants to Help You, South Carolina


The will-they-won’t-they dance between Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC and the South Carolina Republican primary continues. In a guest editorial in SC newspaper The State, Colbert explained that he was ready to help the GOP cover the cost of the presidential primary in exchange for them to simply name it “The Colbert Super PAC South Carolina Republican Primary.” Sounds reasonable to me! Now, though, the Republicans have decided not to fund the primary after all, leaving it with the burden of the cost on the state’s counties and with a very boring name. Colbert’s offer still stands, though: “I’ve already filled out the check, and to prove it’s no joke, I’ve written ‘No Joke’ in the memo line,” he says. What more do you want?
